Fast-Finish Teddy-Free Version
I developed this pattern for an event at Schuler Books. The event supported Lansing Comfort Bears, a local effort to put stuffed animals in police cruisers in the event a child is in a traumatic situation.
I expected participants from never-knit-before to professional knit instructor. I did get that variety. The pattern here is a slightly different version than that which I handed out the night of the event.
The PDF pattern linked here is free for gift, charity and personal use. Print and share, but please leave it in this exact version when you do.
There is also a fuller-featured version. It includes tips and hints to help even basic, new knitters through the project.
That pattern sells for $6 and one dollar from each pattern will be donated to EVE (End Violent Encounters), an amazing local charity which has a great record helping women get into safe new lives. Click Here for that enhanced pattern.
