Cathy, the Teddies are knitted from a pattern in Sandra Polley's book "The Knitted Teddy Bear" which I bought on "Amazon". I have adapted the pattern to make it a little less time consuming but it still needs some work as there are 13 pieces in this particular pattern. There are some lovely bear patterns in the book for bears from 4" to 21" high I can really recommend a copy.
Hi Cathy, welcome to our warm KAS community. We hope you will enjoy the forum and your region's group. You should join the UK Group!
There are lots of great discussions going on in the forum, including the monthly challenges.
We are still continuing our July Challenge - keep a newborn warm, making blankets for abandoned babies, and there have been some great results for the August in Africa challenge - you can see photographs under the photos menu. (Details of both challenges in the main forum). We're also embarking on our September challenge which is also under "challenges" in the forum.
