So I purchased the Classic Teddy Bear Pattern and am very excited to make it, I have never made a jointed bear before. And therein lies the problem, the pattern calls for disks and cotter pins for jointing. But they come is a lot of different sizes, how do I know what size to purchase? The pattern recommends Edinburgh Imports for purchasing them and as you'll see there are many to choose from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I have this pattern! I just plan to buy a pack of variety sizes and see what fits best after I get the pieces knitted, but I don't think larger than 1" will be needed.
Hello, Please tell me what things are required to make teddy bear. Thanks in advance.
Hello, this teddy bear says to use Alpaca yarn, but really any would work, the alpaca gives more of an old fashioned feel, size 3 needles, knit and purl sts, inc and dec. The notions are listed on the pattern. Its a fun bear to make. There are many others on different sites but I've not found any others that have tthe old fashioned look. Have fun!
