Square Bear Knitting Pattern

There are a lot of cute plush animal patterns out there, but most of them are crochet. The knitting ones I could find were pretty complicated. I created this This Square Bear Knitting Pattern with beginners in mind. The entire bear is knit flat, in pieces and then sewn together. It’s knit in Garter Stitch and there’s no increasing/decreasing. If you can knit a square, you can make this bear!
