After the crazy baby blanket knitting was done, there was another little one having a birthday. I figured a little bear would be a good birthday gift. And it would be a quick project. I used the pattern from here for the bear. For the tie, I made up the pattern, with a couple of increases and a couple of decreases. I tied the tie on like one I’d wear because I figured it would be the easiest and most effective way of attaching the bit of fabric.
