I made this for my new nephew. On the wise advice of a friend at work, I made another one in a coordinating color for my neice, so that there wouldn’t be issues about Who Got A Present.
The yarn is called “Velvet Touch.” I got it from another knitter at a garage sale. 100% synthetic, but really, really soft, and washable. Pattern from Sandra Polley’s Knitted Teddy Bear Book. It’s Oscar – but doesn’t look like it in the face.
Very cute! I love his expression!
And, very smart to knit 2….been there done that and learned my lesson! *g*
What a fantastic gift!
It’s absolutely lovely and I’m sure the little ones will absolutely love them to bits.
Very cute. And wise to knit one each. Very wise!
you’re too talented for your own good… is there any hobby you don’t have?!?
I bet that bear is soooo sooofffft!
He is cute!
Looks like a Greatful Daed bear! 🙂
Dead… you know…
I found you through a mutual friend and have to say that your entries absolutely fascinate me. I hope you don’t mind me adding you.
Awww. So sweet.
I’ve added you as well. Welcome!
From one teddybear maker to another … it’s adorable!!! What a cute expression!
I can’t knit, mine are handsewn, but wow!!!
Heh, you can make me one anytime!
Any patterns you can recommend? I think handsewn ones would be well received also, and I’ve got a lot of years still coming up!
What lucky kids!
Cute ‘n’ cuddly. I always loved hand made stuffed animals. I had quite a few as a young’n.
He’s very cute. I love his color. I bet he’s very soft and cuddly and will be well-received.
How many times have you read ‘The Velveteen Rabbit?
This sweet bear you have made looks like a prime candidate to become real some day.
Wow…I just got this today! Sorry!!
As for patterns, all of mine are off the internet. But I have been making them for so long I kind of have my own.
I would seriously suggest the pattern from The Teddy Bear Search (http://www.teddybearsearch.com/patterns/) as their bears are highly adaptable.
Have fun and post pics!
Or even here:
Remember, all teddy bears can be made for children of all ages if you use safety eyes and noses.
I *only* use safety eyes now, as even my display bears are adored by children.
OMG, that’s so cute!
