I wasn't finished yet at the moment and I thought, "Is it really that bad?" But when I was done, I kind of understood his concern ... and we had a good laugh out of my first knitted teddy bear:
The pattern is from IK Summer 2005 and I used some Patons Grace scraps from a gone-bad crocheted project. It does look a bit eerie!
Well, I wasn't just making this for fun. My niece's birthday is coming and I have been having difficulty crocheting the hat I planned. When I saw this pattern, I thought it would be a good gift for a little girl if made into a keychain. This one is just a practice. For the real thing, I would use the leftover from Mystery Kit #3. Wool is definitely a better choice for this tiny bear.
