Technique Teddy Bear
Let Teddy help teach you knitting techniques used in shaping 3-dimensional forms. Techniques used and described in making this small adorable teddy bear include:
- Double Knitting (makes a tube, or two-sided fabric, on straight needles for the legs, body, and arms)
- Your choice of Kitchener Stitch or Double Knit Bind Off (for joining along top of arms and shoulders)
- Knitting in the round (for beginning and ending the head)
- Circular short rows (for shaping the face)
Have fun going through your yarn stash to find a smooth, textured or fuzzy yarn as you prefer for your teddy bear. Of course, you might not be able to decide and will end up with a family as we did here!
