knit you advent calendar 2014, day 6: bear sweater



Day 6 in the Knit You Advent Calendar 2014: Bear

Now this one is an old one, but a good one! As you can guess, the sample sweater is already given to another loving home and to another little fellow. I am so happy to see that sweater still keeping someone warm and happy! Also this is a super quick pattern, possible to knit up just in few days - perfect knitting before Christmas.


Bear 

Soft and fuzzy, this sweater will keep the little ones warm and it’s perfect for cold Spring days. The slightly longer pullover is worked top down in one piece.

I would love to knit this for myself! I have been looking for a simple garter stitch slouchy sweater and this is it!
