Let Teddy help teach you seamless knitting techniques used in shaping 3-dimensional forms. Techniques used and described in making this small adorable teddy bear include:
? Double Knitting (makes a tube, or two-sided fabric, on straight needles for the legs, body, and arms)
? Your choice of Kitchener Stitch or Double Knit Bind Off (for joining along top of arms and shoulders)
? Knitting in the round (for beginning and ending the head)
? Circular short rows (for shaping the face)
Have fun going through your yarn stash to find a smooth, textured or fuzzy yarn as you prefer for your teddy bear. Of course, you might not be able to decide and will end up with a family as we did here!
Each teddy has it?s own personality, and the overall size will depend on the yarn and size needles you use, as well as the degree of stuffing. The overall height is usually in the range of 8" to 10".
