Bear Pair Teddy Bear

charity_bearThis is a Bear Pair Teddy Bear. The pattern is attributed to “A.B.” and is available free at Bev’s Country Cottage. I knit this from an easy care, no-name, acrylic yarn provided by my knitting guild, the Black Sheep Knitting Guild. The Guild will be donating these bears and other animals and dolls to children who need a softie to cuddle.

This is a very quick, very easy knit. Here’s another I completed, including a small stockinette scar accidentally knitted on bear’s face.


You may be wondering why “A.B.” calls her one-bear pattern a bear pair. Check out the clever construction. You just fold at the center point, sew the seams, stuff, and gather in the neck a tad.
