1. There’s a bear ….

  • Designed by Tracy Henwood

Do you feel some unique vibes these knitted bears emanate? I do. I’m in love with its vintage look and lovely design. It knits quickly in one piece with a garter stitch by the free tutorial and less the one skein of 8-ply yarn. It’s a fast and fun project, especially if you watch the supportive video tutorial. And I can just imagine how your kids will smile when you present it. I wish you happy knitting!

This lovely plush bear is extremely squishy and soft because of the amazing, delicate yarn. Moreover, he’s one of the best amigurumi toys you can gift your child, but the designer decided to discontinue this free teddy bear knitting pattern. I’m sorry for that.
