Introduction

I designed this cute guy for my cute nephew Sid :)

Materials List

  • Hook: 3 mm
  • Yarn: Fine yarn in 4 colors - I used Mille Fili from Wolle Rödel (100% mercerized cotton, 130m/50g) in caramel (MC), white, red and black
  • Stitch marker
  • Polyfil for stuffing
  • Yarn needle

Finished Size

Height (sitting): 14 cm If you use a thicker yarn and a bigger hook, your teddy will also be bigger :)

Gauge

Gauge is unimportant. Make tight stitches.

Notes

Each piece starts with an adjustable ring like The Magic Adjustable Ring
All body parts are worked in spirals. Use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds.

Use main color unless otherwise mentioned.
