I made this for my new nephew. On the wise advice of a friend at work, I made another one in a coordinating color for my neice, so that there wouldn’t be issues about Who Got A Present.
The yarn is called “Velvet Touch.” I got it from another knitter at a garage sale. 100% synthetic, but really, really soft, and washable. Pattern from Sandra Polley’s Knitted Teddy Bear Book. It’s Oscar – but doesn’t look like it in the face.
