Have fun going through your yarn stash to find a smooth, textured or fuzzy yarn as you prefer for your teddy bear. Of course, you might not be able to decide and will end up with a family as we did here!
Each teddy has it’s own personality, and the overall size will depend on the yarn and size needles you use, as well as the degree of stuffing. The overall height is usually in the range of 8" to 10". View the sample cover page below for guidelines to choosing yarn and needles.
