Knot Forgotten Knit Bear
*NOTE: this is the condensed PDF version of a free pattern available on my website (Pear Dinkum)
Spread love, hope, and a little knitted magic to a child who has lost everything.
The mission behind Knot Forgotten is to provide toys to children living in extremely difficult situations. Knot Forgotten was founded as a response to the Syrian refugee crisis, and has since expanded to include the children of overseas Christians suffering persecution.
As of writing, over 2800 toys have been donated by makers from over 20 countries around the world. The message is one of love and joy, and to let each child know they’re not forgotten.
The entire pattern is worked flat on straight needles and then seamed afterwards. You will need a pair of 3.00mm needles and some spare DK yarn in various colours.
DPNs are used to make the i-cord for the bee's antennae (you can also use a circular needle).
