Bitsy baby is snuggled up in a cute Teddy Bear suit. Ready for a bedtime story or maybe to play dress up and have a teddy bears picnic
Bitsy Baby dolls are ideal projects for new knitters and a fun little project for more experienced crafters.
You can create your own Teddy bear Bitsy Baby in just an evening. –
The body and head are knitted in one piece and after seaming and stuffing the legs are created by sewing a seam through from front to back to divide the legs.

The arms use very simple shaping and are sewn on when making up this cute little character. And the hood is knitted separately and sewn on to the finished doll.

Size-14cm /5.5”- Just the right size to fit in a pocket!

Recommended yarn: -
Rico Teddy bear Aran
King Cole Dollymix, Stylecraft Special Knit DK, Paint box yarns Simply DK or any similar double knit flesh tone yarn
Check the recommended needle size for your yarn and use a needle 1 size smaller.

This will give a close textured stocking stitch which will hold its shape well when stuffed
