Hugo Bear is a rather rotund not so grizzly bear, he can be made using just one skein of yarn.
The pattern for him includes instructions for knitting the pieces flat and instructions for knitting the head and body and arms in the round
Techniques included are cast on (which ever method you prefer), increasing and decreasing, German short row shaping, applied i-cord. All the techniques are explained in detail throughout the pattern.
If you want to knit Hugo in the round you will need double pointed needles, otherwise straight needles will be just perfect.
