Christmas Bitsy Teddy

Bitsy Teddy is wearing her new dress and warm winter cloak She’s is wrapped up snug and warm for a Christmas afternoon walk.

Bitsy Teddy’s clothes are removable, so little folk can enjoy dressing her up, so she can enjoy all their adventures together.

Bitsy Bear’s head and body are knitted in a single piece with simple shaping Bitsy teddy’s dress and cloak are knitted flat in a single piece from the top down. The dress is seamed at the back. The front/hood edging on the cape is picked up and knitted after sewing up.

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 7-page pattern has two sections, Part A covers making your teddy, part B covers making her clothes. Each section includes full details to guide you through making up and finishing

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.

I do hope you enjoy your knitting project and if you would like to read more about my work please visit my website
