Technique Teddy Bear 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 itís 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". View the sample cover page below for guidelines to choosing
yarn and needles.
