About my patterns

All of the patterns on this site are designed and written up by me using UK terms. I try to make the patterns as easy as possible, but for any new techniques (such as short rows or intarsia) I give details instructions, and add links and/or photos. Great for anyone new to knitting.  Also I use the most popular yarns such as double knitting, aran or 4ply, which are easily available.

A note about yarn.  As these items are small, even the slightest difference of thickness in yarn can make a difference in the size of the finished garment.  So please check your tension and use a small/larger needle if needed.  Although I have given a guide to sizing, check your knitting as you go, as teddy bears and dolls come in a variety of shapes and sizes


If you have any queries please let me know either in the comments or by contacting me. I would love to hear from you.

Also, please don't copy the patterns to use for financial gain. And it you put photos online of finished items I would appreciate a mention.

Thanks for visiting my site
Linda

  1. Hi Linmary,
    Would you please tell me what size bear the 'teddy knitted dress and shoes' fits.
    My bear is 13 inches tall and suspect the bear this dress pattern is designed for is considerably bigger.
    Kind regards,
    Rhea

  5. Love the teddy dress just perfect for what I want the trouble is my knitted bear is only 9 inches and this would be too big is there any way of making it smaller. I am not good with patterns I'm afraid.

    1. The only things I can suggest is that you use a smaller needle, perhaps a 3.25 and finer yarn such as 4ply, and adjusting the length. This would be easier than faffing about altering stitch counts. hope this helps

    1. Hi
      Im' sorry your partner's having problems with the pattern. As the items for baby dolls are so small I usually try to knit the yoke in once piece so there's not so much seaming.
      I've looked at the pattern where it says join pieces and there are clearly two sleeves

      On left hand needle, with right side facing slip sts of left front, sleeve, back, sleeve and right front working yarn should be at the beg of row (133sts)

      So I'm not sure what has gone wrong

      Linda
