Knitting teddies

Teddy bears, I love them!

Everybody should have a teddy bear to love.
The more bears the better.

Just look at those furry friends heading for the beach with buckets and spades and fishing nets. What fun! Molly Brett's illustrations have always been a favourite of mine.

If you love teds I thought you might like to knit one (fairisle style).

This is one I designed a few years ago and he's an all time favourite.

You can knit him by hand or on a knitting machine. My pattern repeats every 12 stitches but your bears can be spaced as you choose or maybe knit a singleton.

The graph is easy to follow. Each square on the grid represents one stitch.

Happy teddy knitting everyone!
