The new crochet pattern for the weight-lifting bear is available. The bear is for my husband: to remind him to exercise. The bear is called "Chubby Bear" and the pattern is sold on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Kobobooks. It will soon be available on Google Play, Barnes & Noble and the iBookstore.
The pattern includes how to make the barbells and the base.
I will stop selling PDF patterns on Etsy, Craftsy, Ravelry and Dawanda soon. The reason are the new European Union VAT rules. They're so complicated that I'd rather sell my patterns elsewhere. I'm looking at selling my PDF patterns at Loveknitting.com
