Because size is not crucial to this project the gauge does not need to be matched exactly and the overall size can be changed by changing the yarn weight and needle size. The most important thing is to work Otto at a relatively tight gauge to create a firm fabric without holes that the stuffing can poke through. If you are using a different yarn weight you should use needles to achieve a tighter than recommended gauge.
US 2.5 / 3mm double pointed needles for smaller bear knit with DK weight yarn or 4mm needles for larger bear knit with worsted weight yarn.
Small amount of darker yarn for embroidering eyes and nose, for a toy that won’t be played with by babies or young children you could use toy safety eyes.
