GAUGE:

15 sc = 4 inches [10 cm] When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Tiny Teddy Bear Reviewed by Christine Hanstad on 2012-07-11 *****
This guy's just too cute. I've made two as gifts so far using Vanna's Choice in some shade of brown. I think I'm going to try to make a super-mini bear using sock weight yarn and a size C hook.
