Here is the finished product of the bear I made for my friend Carly’s college graduation!  I knitted a gown to go with it, but I was knitting with a different gauge then the pattern called for and failed to remember that little fact while knitting the gown, causing it to be humongous.  So I nixed the gown completely and stitched the gold sash right to the bear.  Carly was in the Phi Kappa Phi Honors Society, so that’s what they Greek letters are about, and she wore lots of ropes, but I chose three to braid together for the bear.

So cute, and I want to make one for myself now!
