PATTERN DETAILS

Having 11 grand children I'm always on the lookout for cute patterns. I've seen these in fabric form, but just felt the need to create it from yarn. Someone bought my grand daughter a cloth one when she was born and she has about worn it out - twice (yes, they had to replace it once). Years ago I watched the movie 'Mr. Mom" and his little boy had a 'woobie' (blanket) that Mr. Mom spent weeks trying to get him to give up. To me it just seemed the thing to make, something fairly small that a child can hold, carry and cuddle with. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY magic circle, ch, sc,dc Granny square GAUGE When making the Teddy bear the stitches should be fairly even and not too loose. If you choose you can use a size G hook for the bear. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Bear head approx 6 inches, attached blanket 13 inches for a total of 19 inches when held upright. Blanket opens to 18 inches square SUGGESTED YARN 220 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Red Heart COLORWAY Any color that suits

Recommended with this pattern

  • Sizes H and I crochet Hooks, tapestry needle for weaving in tails of yarn. Various color yarns to make the Bear head, snout, arms and small amount of black for the nose. For the blanket I used Red Heart Plush in Blue and White (You will only need about 1/2 skein each)
  • Small amount of premium polyester fiber fill. 2 safety eyes 9 - 12 mm ( your choice)

For years I've been untangling knots and winding yarn into balls - I've kind of felt a bit like a 'yarn ninja'... "Grasshopper, you must first learn to untangle before you can elegantly create loops into beautiful stitches". Ok, so it wasn't quite that bad but you can bet Mom was sitting next to me saying "You see that mistake? Take it out and start over" It taught me 2 things - 1. do my very best to NOT make mistakes and 2. Learn how to hide those mistakes with corrections on the next row! Mom wasn't nearly as much of a yarn hoarder as I am, she'd see a pattern and buy just enough yarn to make the project. I'm just the opposite, I buy the yarn and find a way to make a project. I've also learned to write my own patterns over the years, something Mom never did (you have to have extra yarn to do this!!). I have about a gazillion lovely projects or swatches that I've made in the hopes of one day making something with that particular series of loops. I am quite certain after I am put into ground my children will go through my stuff and say "Huh?? What WAS she making here??"
