Baby bear is 22cm. His body and ears are from the Gypsycream 'Little Ted the Bear' pattern, but the other parts are my design with some help from Sarah Glasson's Knit a Teddy. I am not a designer or pattern writer but I am trying to write the pattern - a bit of a challenge as I haven't a clue how one is supposed to do it. I had three attempts at the head. I actually managed the arms and tiny tail first go.
I used mainly mattress stitch to make him up and Pearl cotton for the facial features. Stitched features are nice and safe for babies.
I have used Lang Merino 120, which is soft but tough - perfect. I used about 1.25 Balls for the main colour and just about 0.20 of a ball for paws and nose. Basically, I had to buy just one more ball of the main colour after completing his mum Dorothea.
