Valley Yarns 670 Holiday Bears KAL Week 2

Share Button

How’d the first part of your bears go? This week, we’re moving on to the yoke and arms. If you’re observant, you’ll see that the yoke area is reminiscent of a sweater, so it makes for good top-down sweater practice.

You’ll be using a lot of the same techniques as last week, so you may want to hop back and review the videos. This week, you’ll also be dividing for the arms.

This can get a little cumbersome with all of the dpns hanging off. I found that transferring some of the stitches to waste yarn was super helpful. It makes it easier to handle without getting poked, or the other needles getting in the way. You don’t have to replace them all, just one or two, and they’re super easy to slide back on. You’ll notice, I still have two dpns in the body section. The rest of the stitches are on waste yarn.

What has been the trickiest part of the bear so far for you?

    Hi Audrey,
    What part are you having trouble with? In the post, I recommend putting some of the stitches on waste yarn, so there aren’t so many dpns to contend with.
