Pattern Details

NOTE: SO SORRY, BUT DUE TO EU VAT and AUSTRALIAN GST, THIS PATTERN WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE TO COUNTRIES IN THE EU or AUSTRALIA from this Craftsy site. My patterns may be purchased here: 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY K (knit), P (purl), M1 (make 1 increase), Kfb (knit into the front & back increase), K2tog (knit two together decrease), YO (yarn over), Cast-on, Bind-off GAUGE 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. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Approx. 9 1/2" - 10" tall, standing (without hat). The resulting size will be determined by the type of yarn, size needles, and your personal tension. SUGGESTED YARN 310 yards of Worsted weight
