Knitting Square Ted

As you have probably realised, I have recently learnt to knit. I am very proud of myself, as it was a craft that I didn’t think I would ever get in to, as it looked too fiddly. But. Here I am! And I can officially call myself a knitter!

You may remember the bunny rabbit I knitted last month. Well, I set myself a challenge to make a bigger cuddly toy, and here it is!

The pattern is from the same book as the bunny, and has a mini ted and a maxi ted, and I challenged myself to the maxi, which involved knitting over 100 rows. Which was hard!

But I did it! you have to knit each section separately, so the body/head, both arms and both legs are stitched on after they have been sewn into tubes and stuffed.

Unfortunately, I sewed one of his legs the wrong way, so the knitting is sitting the wrong way, and one leg is slightly shorter than the other one. Other than that, I am super proud!

  1. Knitters have a saying. “It’s a design feature.” If anyone asks about that leg, don’t ever say it was an accident! Say, “Isn’t that fun? I love that little detail. It’s a design feature.”

    If you can knit softies, you can knit lots of other things, too. They involve a good bit of counting.
