It took as long to seam his nineteen itty, bitty pieces together as it did to knit them all.
I soft sculpted his face to give it a little more depth and character.
I'm very happy with my yarn choice, Bernat Alpaca -Natural Blends. It gives Bitzen a fuzzy, fulled look similar to the old style mohair bears. Using one 100g ball of each colour, "Tundra" and "Wheat", I have enough of the two yarns left to make him a buddy in the opposite colours.
*Bitzen was named, tongue in cheek, for the many "bits 'n' pieces" he required.
