PATTERN RATING:Star Rating There is a huge variety of patterns here for almost all sizes of bears(see table of contents). Most have to be enlarged, but are gridded to help with this. They have some markings, but number seems to be determined by the designer.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are broken down by body part, and there are no illustrations to go with them, except for Mr. Schutt's article on basic bear techniques - there you get some excellent photographs.

SUMMARY- You get a nice variety of patterns here, with clothing that can be taken off(not glued or sewn to the bear). I was afraid when I ordered the magazine that I would get a lot of generic patterns without any credits to the designers. That was clearly not the case, I'm happy to say. It was well worth the price of admission, with patterns from designers well known in the field.
