A lot of thoughts of movement went into this: The natural colorway moves back in time with a retro feel. The bears move their legs from one motif to another as they amble around. Some of the bears get just a bit leaner as they wander around toward the top. They’re “stranded” – they can’t help it! But it’s just by a stitch – can you find it?
If you’re moved to knit the design but want different colors, I’m busy putting a few alternate colorways together. At 9 sts/inch, I’d recommend either Spindrift or Baby Ull (which I used for my Postwar Mittens, which were knit at exactly the same gauge.) Here are some colorways to consider and I’ll add more as they become available:

My delight with Spindrift at 9sts/inch has prompted me to start carrying it at Kidsknits. Both of these colorways are available and I’ll post more as my Spindrift stock expands. (Link to be posted shortly.)
Some Baby Ull options:
Just the tip of the iceberg, my darlings!
