Teddy bear onesie



A teddy bear onesie using double knit, with either plain or an easy fair isle pattern. 

The pattern is in stocking stitch throughout with the legs made first then joined to continue with the body and raglan shaping for the arms. As the pattern is to fit a  15"/17" Build a bear, which are the 'sit down' type of bear, there is a lot of shaping at the back using short rows (Iv'e given full instructions for this - its really easy). If your bear isn't this type you could omit rows 19, 20, 23 and 24 on the left leg and rows 18,19,22 and 23 on the right leg.  But its best to check your knitting as you go to get a good fit.  
I used a self striping yarn (King Cole Cherish) for the plain onesie, with a plain contrast yarn which gives a lovely effect. The red and white fair isle would be great for Christmas. 




If you made this onesie please let me know how you got on (I would love to see a photo on Ravelry) 
if you find and errors or have any queries, let me know in the comments below.   Thanks

  2. Then comes the personal touch; you decide on the text to go on the Teddy Bear's hooded top; choosing a heart, star and even kisses to add to the Teddy Bear's garment. https://www.teddyway.de

    1. hi

      Wrap is used in short rows to add shaping to garments, this is needed for the sitting down type of Build a Bear. I've amended the pattern to make using wrap a lot clearer, so you will need to download the pattern again.

      If you have any more queries please let me know

      I've checked the pattern and there isn't a page missing. I'm wondering if its a problem with your printer

  5. Hi, I am making the onesie for my grandson but I have never worked from a chart before and I am having difficulty understanding how to use it....despite googling!! I presume the edge stitches are only worked once each at the beginning of the Knitting and the end? I am confused by the 4 stitch repeat as that leaves one column of stitches on the left unexplained.....in other words, totally confused. Do I work all columns except the first and last each time or just the four stitch repeat. I have tried both and I am still no wiser. Sorry to be so dim but could you point me to a tutorial that would help maybe? I do hope you can help as my grandson is expecting great things!!! Regards Pam

  6. Hi

    Knit the first stitch then repeat the next 4 stitches to the last 2 stitches, knit the last 2 stitches from the chart. For the second row knit the first 2 sts then repeat the 4 sts to last stitch, work last stitch from chart

    Hope this helps

  8. Thank you Linmary it worked out beautifully....once I realised that I was working right to left then left to right! I did miss a row by mistake but luckily the middle one so it doesn't look wrong! Thank you for your help and for the lovely patterns - my grandson and his bear also thank you. Regards Pam
