Little Bear is small enough to tuck into your pocket or school bag. He is a little friend who’s always ready to give comfort and a cuddle. Little Bear is a safe and washable first teddy for baby. He’s just the right size for tiny hands to hold. (You could make two from one ball of yarn so there is always a clean one to cuddle!) If you would rather make little Bear in Double knit/ Light Worsted yarn, then this pattern will still work just as well. Knitting Tip- Fancy yarn is fun to knit with but do “bear” in mind that due to its fluffy texture counting stitches is difficult. Count your stitches as you knit each row, this fancy yarn is very hard to rip back!

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