Bitsy Teddy is small enough for little hands to hold and cuddle. His clothes are removable, so little folk can enjoy dressing him in his sweater and trousers, then Bitsy Teddy can enjoy all their adventures together.
Bitsy Bear’s head and body are knitted in a single piece with simple shaping.
All the pieces are worked flat and then seamed. Bitsy teddy’s sweater is knitted flat in a single piece from the top down and seamed at the back. His trousers are knitted from the top down and divided to create the leg sections
If you are new to top down patterns this is a nice first project, stitch markers help track the shaping. I explain each step row by row to guide you.
Standard knitting techniques are used through-out- however please be sure to use M1(make 1) when increasing, otherwise your stitch count will be incorrect.
This 8-page pattern has two sections, Part A covers making your teddy, part B covers making his clothes. Each section includes full details to guide you through making up and finishing with photos to illustrate key points.

What others have made
My sketch book is always full of new toy and doll characters waiting to be created in yarn.
I love bringing them to life with my knitting needles!
I spend my days in my sunny studio with my Siamese cat for company.
Surrounded by colourful yarn, my hands are busy clicking the knitting needles or sketching current ideas.
I create dolls and toys to celebrate the seasons and important times in people’s lives, Christmas and Easter- New babies and snuggly tired toddlers.
In between creating new dolls and teddy bears. I’ve created patterns for knitting magazines and worked with retail firms to create knitting kits.
I started out selling my knitted and felted bags at Craft and Design events where I enjoyed meeting other knitting enthusiasts.
It was these knitters who convinced me to publish my patterns for others to enjoy.
