Teddy Bear was made for my colleague's new baby boy. The yarn and coloursI used are Rico Soft Essentials Merino Aran (colour No. 033) delicate pale blue for the main teddy colour with (colour No. 054) brown for the paws and and (colour No.060) cream for the tummy.
This is only the second toy I have ever made so I found it very interesting seeing how it all went together.
I wanted the limbs to have a floppiness to them so I confess I did add an additional row of single crochet to the top of the legs and arms before sewing them on.

Lois Daykin's book is highly recommended, there are many lovely patterns to choose from, I am working my way through them. Next will be the gorgeous matching Teddy Bear Bootees.
