Shorty the Short-Row Baby Bear
About Shorty the Short-Row Baby Bear with Laura Barker
Shorty is a colorful 4″ teddy bear which uses German short rows to create a big tummy, a bottom, no-sew ears, pointed toes, curved arms, and contrasting colored pads. The body is worked sideways then stitches are picked up to add the appendages. Shorty is the Baby from my Three Shorty Bears pattern, and can be substantially completed in class, using approximately 4g of each of 5 colors of worsted yarn found in a mini pack or selected individually. The class includes full Three Shorty Bears pattern as a free download with instructions for the Mama & Papa bears.
This Fiber Arts Seminar is offered as part of the 2021 Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival and is limited to 20 students.
