Mood:  hug me
Topic: make a tiny ted
Denise's page


Hi to all you happy crafters out there!

I've so much enjoyed all the free patterns I find on the web I thought it time I added one of my own.
Here's a bear only very small so if you wish you can hang him or her on your tree or perhaps it can be a little secret bear
to share your secrets and be a companion,should fit into most little bags or pockets.
This is my first webpage so please excuse the layout.
Anyway here's my pattern and I've added a short poem to go with your bear.

Hope you have fun knitting!Best wishes Denise


For the bear in the picture I used size 3mm needles.
Oddment of any colour yarn a light brown looks nice
I used double knitting
Dark brown or black for eyes nose and mouth.
Contrasting colour for scarf.
Finished size of my bear was 10½cm or 4 inches in height.

Body and head(make 2)
Bear is knitting in stocking stitch throughout although every row knit would work equally well
Cast on 5sts
Beginning with a knit row st st 12 rows ending with a purl row, break yarn
Onto same needle cast on 5 sts.
Beginning with a knit row st st 12 rows ending with a purl row.
Knit across all 10 stitches.
P 1row
St st 6 rows.
Cast on 6 sts at beginning of next 2 st st rows.
St st 2 more rows
Cast off 6 sts at beginning of next 2 st st rows
K2 tog.K to last 2 sts K2 tog.
P2 tog.P to last 2 sts P2 tog.
K increasing 1 st at each end of row.
P 1 row(10sts).
St.St 4 rows.
K2 tog k to last 2 sts k2tog.

Cast off last 4 sts.
Cast on 4 sts.
St.St 50 rows.
Cast off.
stitch up seams sewing in all loose ends leaving small opening in the side for stuffing.
If for the tree stuff lightly so it's not too heavy.
Place ears on head stitch in position and oversew all around the outside edge of ear with yarn to help form the shape
Embroider face a fine yarn will do equally well, I used a white cotton to add a dot of light to the eyes.
Place scarf around neck sew in ends and tack into position at shoulder
If for the tree thread a thread through the top of the head to form a loop.
well done it's finished,give your completed bear a hug!

I'm just a sweet little bear
I can hide out of sight,
I'll help share your troubles
When things won't go right
Just pop me in your pocket
Only you'll know I'm there,
Your secret, your courage,
Your friend, little bear.
