I love tiny things, it’s true. Especially really tiny things. Especially especially teeny tiny adorable things. It’s one of my weird quirks. When I’m feeling down, stressed, or just in need of a quick pick-me-up, one sure-fire way to raise my spirits is to make something cute, pointless, and tiny.
I’ve been keeping this pattern in my back pocket for years, waiting for a day when I would need a tiny, adorable, pick-me-up.
Well, that day came, and instead of moping around the house, I broke out my fingering-weight yarn and my US0 DPNs and these two little bears just about flew off my needles.
Seriously. Tiny.They measure just under 2 inches tall from the tips of their toes to the tops of their ears. And the best part? Their dresses are removable- look at the teeny bare naked (naked bear) adorableness!And the best part? The pattern is well-written, clear and free!

(And, don’t worry about me. I just had a long day, but it was noting my tiny bears couldn’t handle!)
