Newsboy Teddy is knit in-the-round, using approx. 310 total yds. of #4-worsted wt. yarn. Freely standing at 9 1/2"-10" tall (without the hat), his body, legs and hind feet are knit in all one piece. Newsboy Teddy's overalls and hat are removable for fun dress-up time.


Gauge for the bear is not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches. Gauge for
the clothing on size 6 (4mm) needles is approx. 5 sts and 7 rows per inch. Though it is not critical, the clothing should fit the bear with enough ease to make removal and dress-up easy.
