Swans Island Patterns Ballerina Bear

This adorable little bear is both a loveable toy as well as a tiny security blanket. She is modeled after a favorite “lambie” blankie that two of my sons adored as toddlers. The bear head and arms are knit and stuffed, and then her skirt simply becomes a small square blanket - not the kind you wrap up in but the kind that tiny hands can grasp onto and snuggle with, chew on, and take with them everywhere they go! Of course, if knit in blue or soft grey, this ballerina could just as well be a favorite boy’s blankie as well.
