Loom Knit Bear

Lion Brand® Vanna's Choice®

GAUGE:

Exact gauge is not essential to this project.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Knit 2 stitches together
Note:
The following explanation only applies when you are knitting 2 stitches together at the end of a row.
Move yarn loop from the last working peg to the next to last working peg above existing loop - 2 loops on peg. Knit both loops together to decrease 1 stitch.

NOTES:

1. Follow loom manual instructions for SINGLE KNITTING for how to cast on, knit and bind off.
2. For Body, Arms and Legs, the loom is configured into a closed semi-circle for stability. All work will be done on 28-hole semi-circle piece. The curved shape of the semi-circle piece does not affect the shape of the finished knit fabric.
3. Loom can be configured into a variety of shapes to suit your preference. If desired, use additional loom pieces to configure loom into any shape, then knit back and forth in rows on just one side of loom.

Loom Configuration
Use the following pieces: (1) 28-hole semi-circle piece, (1) 12-hole piece, (2) corner pieces

Connect the pieces as follows: 28-hole semi-circle piece > corner piece > 12-hole piece > corner piece

BODY (make 2)
Set Up

Insert 24 small pegs into center 24 holes on 28-hole semi-circle piece - 24 working pegs placed. Insert contrast color pegs into connecting holes to hold loom together.
With A, cast onto every working peg.
Knit 31 rows.
Next Row: Knit to last 2 stitches, knit 2 stitches together.
Repeat last row until 16 stitches remain.
Bind off.

EARS (make 2)
Set Up

Insert 12 small pegs into center 12 holes on 28-hole semi-circle piece - 12 working pegs placed.
With B, cast onto every working peg.
Knit 2 rows.
Next Row: Knit to last 2 stitches, knit 2 stitches together.
Repeat last row once more.
Bind off as follows: cut working yarn, leaving an 8 in. (20.5 cm) yarn tail. Thread tail into yarn needle provided with loom. Slide needle through yarn loop on peg from bottom to top of loop. Repeat along loom until all loops are threaded. Gently remove knitting from loom. Pull end of yarn to gather stitches, add a small amount of stuffing, then use remainder of tail to sew seam.

ARMS AND LEGS (make 4)
Set Up

Insert 12 small pegs into center 12 holes on 28-hole semi-circle piece - 12 working pegs placed.
With B, cast onto all working pegs.
Knit until 6 rows have been completed.
Next Row: Knit to last 2 stitches, knit 2 stitches together.
Repeat last row once more.
Bind off as follows: cut working yarn, leaving an 8 in. (20.5 cm) yarn tail. Thread tail into yarn needle provided with loom. Slide needle through yarn loop on peg from bottom to top of loop. Repeat along loom until all loops are threaded. Gently remove knitting from loom. Tug on end of yarn to gather up stitches snugly, then use remainder of tail to sew side seam, stuffing as you go.

FINISHING
With bound-off edge at top, follow package instructions to attach safety eyes to front of one Body piece. Seam Body pieces together, stuffing as you go.
With B threaded into yarn needle provided with loom, embroider straight stitch nose and mouth. Sew Ears to Body. Sew Arms and Legs to Body.
Thread yarn ends into yarn needle and weave in ends.
