A 50 pattern stuffed animal book that is collaborating all my older stuffed animal patterns from the past 4 years, and revamping those patterns to update them to better written formats. Don’t worry if you want, I will continue to have the original patterns available, but only in this book does the revamp of the pattern exist.
There are 17 completely new patterns in the book that have never been available before.
The wonderful part of this book is it has all the techniques if photo tutorial and written in one place, plus how to design your own animal series I did awhile back, and how to enlarge your animal patterns from past tutorials. It also has many suggestions on what gauge looms are good with what yarns are out there. What fillings you can consider and so much more. It is a complete book on stuffed animals. 200 pages worth of information.
I include at the end of the book a video index of all the older videos of the animals that had video with them originally, the revamps were not included in the video, but you have access to the link, so you can look at the videos as a guide.
I used the 24 peg 3/8” gauge CinDwood loom for the book and every pattern is written in 24 peg format, but I include the fact you can use any 24 peg loom to make any of these patterns. There are only 2 patterns not in 24 peg format, but giving you options on other ways you can take the pattern in the book, and make them larger easily.
Feel free to ask questions about the book and all, I am here to help.
This is a revamped older pattern that was originally done for a larger size teddy bear, which could be done on the 36 peg Knifty Knitter loom, I did this pattern on the Martha Stewart and New Fine Gauge Pre-Order CinDwood Loom. Any 36 peg loom will work, the only thing that will change is the size of the bear. The large the pegs and the wider the gauge the larger the bear. The smaller the pegs and the smaller the gauge the smaller the bear.
I used basically 1 skein of Lion Brand Unique Circus yarn to make the bright colorful teddy, and 2 small skeins to make the one in the Bernat Blanket yarn.
Polyfil, needle, and crochet hook will be needed for the project, as well as 2 eyes.
The pattern has a full video tutorial included with written instructions.
I like using 18mm safety eyes with washers. This is also part of a DVD I just completed and have for sale.
