Classic Teddy Bear
Interweave SKU: EP0195
Pattern description from Interweave Knits, Holiday 2007:
Mary Ann Gebhardt crafts her old-fashioned, long-limbed Classic Teddy Bear with an eye for vintage details: Contrasting paw pads, hand-embroidered features, and fully jointed limbs turn a simple toy into a treasure.
Yarn: The Alpaca Yarn Co. Classic Alpaca (100% alpaca; 110 yd 101 m/50 g): #206 Waikiki tan (MC), 1 ball; #207 Boston beige (CC), 1 ball.
Needles: Size 3 (3.25 mm). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Note: If bear is intended for young children, omit bead eyes and embroider eyes with embroidery thread and satin stitch.
Notions: Tapestry needle; polyester stuffing; black embroidery threat; black beads for eyes; pins; sewing needle; strong brown thread for attaching eyes; disks and cotter pins for jointing (available from Edinburgh Imports: www.edinbrughimports.com, (800) 334-6274).
