"Ted" is knitted from the top down in one flat piece, the ears are knitted separately. "Ted" is a very easy Bear to make as there is very little seaming once knitted, and no sewing on arms, legs and head. I have made "Ted" in Sirdar Snowflake DK, Fringe Eyelash, Ice Short and Puffy and Polar Fleece yarns, a very versatile pattern. But do remember when substituting the pattern 8ply/DK yarn that needle size and yarn quantity may vary. A lovely little Bear for the little ones.
not important, but ensure your knitting weave is tight enough so as the filling is not visible.
I am now retired, having worked as a Laboratory Analyst for 25 years. I have always loved to knit and sew but didn't have the time while working shift work and raising my 2 sons. I now have 5 grandchildren and lots of time to indulge in craft work.
