can anyone help me with either finding a simple pattern for a kneeling bear or maybe give me some advice on how to adapt a pattern accordingly

Would putting a 90 degree bend in the leg not work for you?  Or maybe a little more than that to get the feet in?

Ah, right.  Well I have a bear that's lying down with bent legs, and just finished the pattern for another that will sit with her legs bent, and that's pretty much all I did.  Here's a photo of Maisey, the lying down one, to give you an idea.

I would draw the pattern with the knees very bent and with the feet stretched out behind like yours would be if you were kneeling.  Wire in the legs will help too - that way you can bend the legs a little more if you need to without taking the bear apart.  It will also help so that you can position the legs to keep the bear from falling over. 

Happy bear making!

If you are designing your own pattern, one thing I find when doing a really bent limb is the piece needs to be much longer than you think! Always seems to take me a couple of gos to get it right.
