Product description

Small in size but big in character, the teddy bear gets the craft treatment with these 40 unique patterns to knit & crochet. Using material from two books in the Twenty to Make series - Crocheted Bears & Knitted Bears - this guide provides two basic bear patterns and 40 different outfits. They include a hiking bear, complete with boots and a backpack, a beach-loving bikini bear, a sweet honeybee bear, a gardening bear, and even an artist bear with her own crocheted easel and paint palette. Every bear has its own special character, making them ideal for gifts that can be personalised to suite any occasion.

Author information

Val Pierce's passion for knitting began when her father taught her to knit at the age of five. Later in life she began home knitting for yarn manufacturers, and since then she has made a huge range of items, from evening dresses to teddy bears. She later began designing items of her own, and before long Val's designs were appearing regularly in national knitting and crochet magazines. She also teaches knitting, as well as a range of other needlecrafts, to both adults and children. Val lives and works in Shropshire. www.crossedneedles.co.uk

Review quote

This eye-catching, brightly colourful book is cheering just to look through. Val Pierce has assembled an endearing gallery of teddy bear characters for you to knit and to crochet. Each one has its own specially designed outfit, right down to its tiny shoes. These charming little bears stand just 20cm tall and are knitted in simple garter stitch. The crocheted bears are even smaller (10cm) and will sit comfortably in the palm of a child's hand. Each one takes just a few hours to complete, including its clothes and accessories. Easy-to-follow instructions and simple patterns make these little bears a delight to create. Whimsical personalities such as Baby Bear, Peter Pumpkin and Katy Strawberry will appeal to young and old alike. There are also bears for every occasion to give as thoughtful and original gifts.-Cygnus Review
