I finished this last night. It’s about 8" tall when he’s standing up, and has thread jointed limbs, so he can be posed. This is the way they made teddy bears back in the old days. I always wondered how they made the bears with moving arms and legs so very long ago, so it was cool to be able to learn. I still need to knit his sweater. I’ll post a picture of him wearing it when I’m done.
 
I used this pattern book to make him. " The Knitted Teddy Bear ". I only recommend this book if you enjoy hand sewing, because there was a LOT of sewing required. Some times I’m in the mood to do hand sewing, so it didn’t bother me at all. Other than that warning to you, I think it’s a great book.
 
 
edit:
I just added a picture of him in his sweater.
