Yes! They can!
Edward and Anastasia Bear are 2 little bears that I have designed for ‘Your Knitting Life’ magazine (formerly known as ‘Knitting Today’), and they’ve been in each issue of the magazine since it started.
They are small… they’re 6 inches tall, and are knitted on 2.75 mm needles using Regia sock yarn.
Recently, on Ravelry, someone asked if Edward and Anastasia could be made larger, and the answer is, ‘You betcha’!
The humungous Edward Bear in the photo is 18 inches tall. If you knit with 8 or 9 mm needles and super bulky yarn or 2 strands of medium weight yarn held together, you will get one very large Edward Bear! Stitch through the hips to make them bendable.
The pattern for the basic Edward is available for free from the ‘Your Knitting Life’ website: Edward pattern link.
