This is the basic bear from Val Pierce’s Twenty to Make: Knitted Bears All Dressed Up (page 6). It’s knitted in garter stitch in five pieces - head (including ears), body & legs (twice) and arms (twice). This basic bear is knitted first and then costumes and accesories are added according to which of the twenty bears you want to knit.
