hungrywallflower

thank you so so much!!!


Pasturemate

It's especially cute on that guy.


PeanutPuzzleheaded21

Is there by any chance you’d make a pattern for this sweater or just a chart of the bear? 🐻❤️🥹


AbominableSnowPickle

That’s amazing! Bears don’t even have thumbs!

Precious


the_princess_frog

This is the best thing I’ve seen in my life,,,, I desire the bear sweater so much❤️❤️❤️❤️


Junebug1515

Wow! This is amazing and very adorable! I don’t wear sweaters often because even though I’m a small person.. I over heat easily… but I’d definitely wear this for a little awhile! And the fact you gave it an actual pocket… A+ in my book which makes it so adorable! Also.. did you name the bear ?!


pastelkawaiibunny

Oh I am OBSESSED. Absolutely stealing this idea 😂


Positive_Cook7959

Was it difficult with the bear hands? 🤔 Also amazing job! I couldn't do that with my regular old hands. 🤣


biscuits_n_wafers

Adorable


bluetrood

Wow!! I'm still trying to learn how to make a hat, this is amazing!


colourmetangerine

Ralph Lauren vibes!!!


BitterActuary3062

I love this so so so much. I want this sweater & this bear


alanielai

OH my gosh this is tooooo cute!!!! I am so tempted to make one myself now!


PeanutPuzzleheaded21

I love this and I want to make one too 🤩🥰🥰🥰🥰 it’s so cute please send the pattern 👏🏻❤️❤️❤️ * I just saw the comments and I’m amazed you did it without pattern I want to make a kitty sweater but I stress too much to do it without a pattern you did that and it came out amazing 👌🏻❤️


rhodeslady

Okay but is this Corduroy.. he looks just like Corduroy. Such an amazing job!


FairyGodmothersUnion

Looks fantastic!


tallyhallic

I love this, it’s really beautifully done. Would you post a photo of the interior? I’m generally curious about the reverse side :)


VeryFluffyMareep

This is absolutely gorgeous and I wish one day my skills get good enough to produce something like this. I also think it’s 1000% better than those at Ralph Lauren


raabhimself81

The founding fathers are impressed!!! This is actually what they meant. 😂


icecreamangel

The cutest face 🥺


Moi_Sunshine

How adorable 🧸


plays_with_string

justifiedbonafide

this is so cute 😭💗


plantgirl_67

Ga! So cute!


dazedjules

that is so precious


oceans28

this is amazing, wow!!!


tilghmanfarm

How did you do the color work? I’m new to color work knitting and it looks great. It looks amazing!


bunnyhive

Woo that's exciting!! The color work on the bear was a hellish mix of intarsia and stranded knitting. I thought I was too good for bobbins - thought taking yarn from both ends of the skein for each color would be enough. I probably spent more time untangling the yarn than actual knitting 🤣


tilghmanfarm

😟 oof that sounds rough. The final product is amazing though!!


elysssesparza

the title got me !!!


flower_eyes

i really want to learn how to knit 😔


AOhK4Y

This is BEAUTIFUL and adorable! 😍🤩


cottageclove

Amazing work! It is so cute!!


LadyofTwigs

This is absolutely something I would have worn ALL THE TIME as a kid and now I wish I knew how to knit so I could make one for my bear-loving mom. Absolutely incredible!


toiletbrushqtip

This is amazing and extra awesome that it’s a dude wearing it! And pulling it SO well!


knit-kat2022

LOVE the buttons and little pocket details!


vensie

This is SO cute!


anxietykilledthe_cat

I find it suspect that your hands are not visible in the second picture and this concludes my theory(supported by your title) that you do in fact have BEAR HANDS. I don’t know if I’m more impressed by the fact that you knit this without opposable thumbs, or that your claws didn’t shred it to bits. Either way, hats off to you, Bear Hand Man.


deixa_carol_mesmo

SO ADORABLE OH MY GOD


ScrantonSpangler

Omg this is incredible!!


netflix_n_knit

Omg this is cute. The story is cute, the bear is cute, the little pocket killed me… You win knitting today.


Snail_jousting

This is cute AF


TrogdorTheBurnin8er

Wish I could upvote twice because the pun is as deserving as this gorgeous sweater!!


blueberry-rose

Adorable!


Cheshire1234

Can I be your boyfriend? 😬 Seriously though: that bear is super adorable and it's really impressive that you created the pattern by yourself AND knit it in a week! I'm very very impressed!!


Western-Level-5981

OMG HOW CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!


Hamiltoncorgi

The bear looks like Corduroy! So cute! I love this sweater.


ZebbieSara

I LOVE this so much! I really wish you had a pattern for this because I'd make it in a heartbeat 💓 you are so talented, great job! 👍


beediddy77

Can we paws a moment to appreciate the un-bear-ably cute pocket and buttons? This is so adorable! 😍


BlueishRaptor3

A dad joke AND an adorable hand knit sweater?! My kinda people right here!

knittingfruit

Dangerous-Air-6587

Beary nice!!!! 😊 It’s lovely!


chai_hard

OH MY GOD ITS GOT A LITTLE POCKET


ColonelTofu

I didn’t even notice the pocket until I saw your comment. I would have totally missed the greatest part of this already amazing sweater, so thank you!!!


latecraigy

Came here to say the same 😂


bunnyhive

LOL yes!!! For loose change and teddy bear-sized snacks 😂


toiletbrushqtip

I only wear clothes with pockets that are waffle-size.


chai_hard

Pretty please post your chart I’m obsessed with him, he looks like Corduroy the bear!


bunnyhive

[Chart is up!](https://imgur.com/a/3VWVpBo) Apologies that the rows aren't numbered like a traditional knitting chart - I used Photoshop to mock up the design 😅


chai_hard

Bless you I can’t wait to have a little bear friend someday


TwilightReader100

That's who I was trying to think of! Yes, I agree, OP, he looks JUST like Corduroy! [For those who don't know who that is](https://imgur.com/a/XcROpuk)


bunnyhive

Yarn: Hoo boy. Let's see... Lion Brand Pound of Love in Antique White Red Heart Soft Yarn in Chocolate Red Heart With Love in Tan Red Heart Super Saver in Buff Knitpicks Mighty Stitch in Canary, Satsuma, and Macaw Impeccable Solid Yarn by Loops & Threads in Cherry (for the little red ❤ on the bear's overalls) --- Pattern: No pattern! I took an existing sweatshirt from my boyfriend and used that as a guide for measurements as I went. Long circular needles were so useful for this! For the bear, I took an image of a basic teddy bear and resized it to about 50-60px wide, then added in overalls using a single pixel tool in Photoshop. --- Story behind this sweater: My boyfriend loves teddy bears. We walked into a Ralph Lauren store one day and they had a line of clothing that featured teddy bears on hats, shirts, hoodies... and sweaters!! It was a dream! My bf fell in love with this one sweater they had in cream white that featured a teddy bear that looked to be knit intarsia. We were then immediately hit with sticker shock - $250 for a sweater I could knit him for a fraction of the cost? Yeah no. 🤣 We got some yarn that weekend and the sweater was finished in a week's time. Bf is happy and so am I! :)❤ --- Edit: By popular demand, [the chart I used to make the bear](https://imgur.com/a/3VWVpBo)! This is how the chart looked like in Photoshop while I was working on it - hope it's somewhat comprehensible! I kept track of my rows with a 1-pixel line that I moved up as I went. It's 48 sts wide and 66 rows tall. I added the pocket, buttons, and embroidered face on after knitting the sweater panel, hence why those aren't there in the chart. Enjoy!!


pastelkawaiibunny

Almost as impressive as your teddy bear skills is your ability to knit a sweater in a week! :O


jahrenberger

We would love a chart if you’re willing to share.


Visual-Arugula

A WEEK. omg. Wow. What looooovely story


shtLadyLove

I instantly thought of the RL teddy sweaters! Very well done.


LemonLazyDaisy

I thought the same thing! I love the RL teddy clothing and everything about this story is utterly charming. Fantastic job with the sweater.


SketchieMarie

It’s so much more special and that story is so sweet ❤️ he looks so proud to be wearing it!!!!! It’s perfection and the pocket is so so cute


stillcoolrr

Also, your boyfriend loves teddybears? How very sweet♡
