Learn how to knit this very hungry polar bear and  his little fish friend with cute critter expert, Megan Kreiner. The bear and fish are made with chunky yarn, so the knitting is fast and easy. Megan shows you how to make every little bit of this 8-inch bear—from tousled head to whip-stitched toe—and also demonstrates how to stuff and assemble. Best of all, you'll learn how to add a safely secured magnet to both critters so the bear can carry the fish wherever he goes.
