Big ted the bear
This is Big Ted the Bear. As his name implies he is a very big bear!
He stands at 26 inches/66cms and sits at 17 inches/43cms. He has large paws and feet, seems he has a bit of growing to do yet!!
I have never seen a knitting pattern for a very big bear and I was challenged by my young son to design one using a whole pack, 400 grams, of yarn. Always up for a challenge I decided to try and even I was amazed how Big Ted evolved!
He is designed with his legs and body as one piece, head, ears and arms need to be worked separately and attached. I couldn't find a safety nose big enough so there are directions for a knitted nose. He is knitted flat and assembled.
Big Ted is a gentle giant of a bear, he's very cuddly and totally huggable! Pattern includes directions for his smart waistcoat.
The directions also include a step by step assembly guide which is full of photos and hints to help you to create this gentle giant of a bear for someone special.
