outstanding  Aug 11, 2008
I sent for this book through this site and I LOVE IT!! I have made one bear and a pair of shoes.
The pattern was error-free and easy to do. This pattern allowed me to be so creative. I used standard 4-ply worsted yarn with size 4 knitting needles and for "paws" I used fancy fur yarn I got from the dollar store. I made the bear purple and the paws turquoise and she already travels with the motorhome. I put an old sock with plastic pellets in the body for weight. The one thing I liked most is the NECK!! In Knitted Babes and Dream Toys the necks are just so wobbly. I used wooden spoons (I cut them down to size) to re-enforce the necks on the knitted babes which are a hoot. This bear is so much more substantial and I think could hold up to more play without additional support!
The pictures in the book are a treat and I love COLOR!! So far the patterns are clear and easy to follow. I always copy patterns on paper anyway so I can keep track of rows.
I only wonder what Claire will come up with next. I just know one thing... I am a HUGE FAN!!
Love this Book!!  Jul 18, 2008
This book was my first attempt at knitting toys and I'm on my third bear. Adorable, easy and fun to knit and kids love them. I would recommend to anyone looking for a toy that is unusual and kids will love to play with.
Quirky and Adorable  Apr 18, 2008
This is one terrific group of nontraditional bears! They're so cute and so long and gangly that any child will be pleased to drag them around by their limp little legs and stuff their little paws into socks and cardigans to go out to play. These are the kinds of bears that will become best friends and lifelong pals for the children in your life. The expressive faces, the vivid personalities and the perfect little wardrobes offer something for every child and for every knitter.

These bears are another offering from the author of Knitted Babes. After making some of the "Babes", I have to say that I much prefer the bears, simply for their quirky cuteness. I've made two bears now and I'm very pleased with the results. Everyone who's seen them laughs out loud and hugs them, adults and children alike. This is a great way to use up leftover yarns and odds and ends. The results also rival the current amigurumi trend for cuteness. I've never seen any amigurumi toys as cute as these little gems.

The only downside to the entire collection is that all of the knitting is done flat on two needles. I'm such a lazy knitter, who hates finishing and sewing up work, that I'd so much prefer directions that knit in the round when possible. I'm sure there's some kind of advantage to making 3-dimensional objects by knitting flat and sewing up, but I haven't been able to find it yet. I'm still giving this book 5 stars, though, because laziness is a personal issue and certainly not the author's problem.

Excellent and highly recommended to one and all! If you liked Knitted Babes, you'll fall in love with Knitted Bears and Claire Garland will become your lasting favorite. Go on, get up and make one for yourself and then make one for every child in your life!
Adorable Lanky Bears  Mar 31, 2008
I haven't made up any of the bears yet, so this review is based on text and pictures alone, but if you're looking for a non-traditional and colorful collection of bears, this is the book. The bears are very lanky -- just the sort of bear that young kids like dragging around by arm or leg. The designs employ a wide variety of tactile yarns (in very standard weights) and I'm itching to dig through my oddballs and put them to work.
