Baby Bear Suit is a roomy and cozy all-in-one suit with a hood that features cute little bear ears. The suit is worked from the top down with either 1 strand of Heavy Merino or 2 strands of Merino held together, and either with or without feet. The hood, yoke and main part of the body are worked back and forth, while legs, sleeves and the bottom part of the body are worked in the round.

You begin with the hood and continue with the raglan-construction yoke. Then sleeve stitches are held aside, to be finished after the body and legs are completed. You then work the rest of the body and pick up stitches for the button bands, before working the legs. For sizes 1-12 months you have the option to knit feet on the legs for an extra warm and cozy Baby Bear Suit instead of ending the legs with ribbed cuffs. Short-row heels and decreases at the toes complete the feet. The heel is an inserted type heel, also called ‘peasant heel’ or ‘forethought heel’. Ribbed cuffs finish the sleeves.
