BUTTON JOINTED BEAR *VALENTINO* CAN BE GIVEN AS A GIFT TO ANYONE ON VALENTINES DAY, OR ANY OTHER TIME, JUST TO SAY YOU LOVE SOMEONE. NICE FOR A CHILD TOO. EASY TO FOLLOW PATTERN WITH LOTE OF COLOURED PHOTOS THROUGHOUT
Not too important for toys. As a general guide if you find your stitches are tight on the needles then move up a needle size, or, if they are always looser go down a size. Either way, the size of 'VALENTINO' will just vary slightly. Please be aware that you will be using fibre fill and you will achieve a better result if your knitting isn't too gappy.
My mother taught me to knit as a child. I also studied embroidery and needlework at school and college. Knitting, however, has always been my favourite craft.
All my patterns have easy to follow instructions with plenty of step by step photos.
May I just say a big *thank you* to everyone who has purchased one of my knitting designs. x
