When my step-son was in the JROTC before we moved, he was given the nickname of Square Bear. I have no idea where it came from, but that is what everyone called him. When I saw the pattern for the adorable amigurumi bear on the Lion Brand website, I thought of him.
The bear worked up so quickly and I used the left over yarn from Sniffy. He is affectionately named after my step-son, who was absolutely thrilled (there was a lot of his usual 17 year old sarcasm mixed in with that!) to have it named after him. Although, he liked it enough to want me to make one in pinks to give his girlfriend for Valentine's Day! Let me know what you think of this little guy!
