As a change from knitting dishcloths, I have been asked to knit a teddy bear for a waiting room. Apparently the one they had previously was so well loved that it was stolen.
I have seen one or two really nice small ones (6-8 inches or so in size), but I understood they were thinking of a larger one - perhaps about a foot high. To sit in its own rocking chair.

How much time/knitting would that take? (I am quite happy to knit two or three small bears instead of one larger one.)

Does anyone have a pattern for an approximately foot tall bear? One they have already used - so they can provide me with a positive opinion of it?

TIA.

I am going to contact the people who asked for it - to make sure what they are asking for.

Thank you for that pattern, njg.
It DOES look cuddly, doesn't it?
How difficult is that yarn to knit with?

Have just spoken to the requester ... and it is a 12 inch bear that is wanted.
Sigh. So much knitting, so little time.

I've never made that particular bear but judging from the pattern it looks relatively simple. It isn't knit in the round so you'll have some sewing to do at the end -that's always my least favorite part Smiley. I'm not a very fast knitter and I would estimate it would take me a weekend to finish that. I have worked with that yarn before I know it's very forgiving. You can make little boo-boos and no one will ever notice!

Here are some other fun patterns...
You mentioned it was for a waiting room. A doctors waiting room??
