The Knitted Teddy Bear : Knit an Heirloom Bear of Your Own
This book is for teddy bear lovers and keen knitters alike of all ages. Knitting small toys is an absorbing and addictive hobby and homemade teddies have a special charm all of their own. The Knitted Teddy Bear has patterns to knit 12 gorgeous, fully jointed teddy bears, ranging in height from 16 to just 4 inches. There are traditional style heirloom bears; for children there are bears with their own wardrobe of clothes; and tiny teds for the miniature bear enthusiast. Only basic knitting skills and materials are needed and many of the projects can be quickly knitted up from oddments of double knitting and 4-ply yarn. The instructions are easy to follow and there are clear diagrams showing how to sew up, thread joint, and create the perfect Bruin. A workshop and ideas section shows you how to use the basic patterns to create many other variations, including "old" attic bears, character teddies and mascots.
