Discover adorable teddy bear patterns you’ll love to knit by Mary Janes Tearoom on Etsy.
There are so many adorable patterns (all digital instant PDF downloads) to choose from over on the Tearoom Etsy shop and it’s definitely well worth a browse. I thought I’d also pick out a few of my own favourites to share with you because I think you’ll love them too. I know how many of you knit for charities close to your heart so I hope these bears will fit the bill. Maybe there’s a baby or child in your life you’d like to knit something special for. Or perhaps you just fancy starting an enjoyable stash-busting project. Either way, I’m hoping these bears will be just what you’re looking for and be a pleasure to make along the way.
Most of the patterns use basic knitting stitches (a couple of the clothing patterns require intermediate level knitting skills), and all have plenty of really clear step by step instructions and photos to help you on your way. You’ll also find useful tips and links on the knitting techniques and supplies you’ll need.
Hope you enjoy – and do share your finished creations with me. I always love to see what you make and to hear the stories behind them. X
How adorable is this new Little Teddy Bear knitting pattern with his cute little baggy trousers and cosy scarf?
This happy little bear would make a wonderful handmade new baby or child’s gift wouldn’t it? And for all of you who have got in touch to let me know about the wonderful charitable causes you knit for… I can’t help thinking this little bear would be a winner!
Worked ‘back and forth’ on 2 single pointed knitting needles but if you’d prefer to make this bear by knitting ‘in the round’ you can buy that version here – see image below
If you fancy making a slightly larger bear, this pattern is perfect as it’s a few inches taller thank the 8″ Little Bear. There are six different woodland bears to choose from in the pattern – in either Scandi inspired, pastel stripes or without stripes. Again the pattern uses basic stitches and includes all the step by step info, photographs and links you’ll need.
If you’d like to make more clothing for your 11′ bear, there’s also an adorable collection of jackets, baggy trousers, pinafore trousers here…
This adorable jacket pattern fits all Tearoom 11″ bears and dolls and is suitable for intermediate level knitters. The suggested yarn is 4ply (fingering) weight sock yarn (the pattern uses self patterning yarns). Love this – it’s almost like a tiny little fair isle jacket.
This adorable pattern includes a pinafore (to wear over original Tearoom bear dress or breeches), a short sleeved fitted cardigan and a short sleeved flared cardigan. There’s also a free mini supplement to make the little Tearoom Bear Scarf which is a lovely bonus. As with the previous jacket pattern, this is suitable for intermediate level knitters and above.
The Candy Bear knitting pattern includes instructions for making this sweet little dungarees and stripy top too. This version of the pattern is knitted in the round. If you’d prefer the ‘back and forth’ version made on 2 needles, you can buy it here. There are lots of step by step photos and info as well as links for all the knitting techniques and supplies you’ll need. Basic knitting stitches and very easy eyes make this suitable for a beginner. There are patterns to make more clothes for Candy Bear here.
