Huggable Teddy Bear Free Knitting Pattern

Monday, May 21st, 2012

Oh my, I love knitting little animals, soft, cuddly, furry, huggable children’s animals. And this particular free knitting pattern is for a teddy bear. In fact, two Teddy Bears. Very cute, They are considered to be twin bears, one is a little smaller than the other, but they are so precious.

It’s a unique idea, having identical twin bears and the only difference being one is a bit smaller than the other and of course, whatever yarn you choose for your bears. Exactly the same, or a whole lot different. It is your choice.

How to Shorten or Lengthen Your Knitted Piece

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

I think it is hard to figure out when to quit knitting. It will seem long enough but it isn’t or it will be so long it is embarrassing. I once knitted a baby sweater and the thing would have fit a child instead.

You know you are supposed to for sure do your gauge swatch, and I do. But there is no swatch for length.  Neither Sleeve nor body length. Well what do you do?

Well, first don’t panic. It’s okay to take a deep breath at this point and do not throw your work in the trash. We can fix it.

Here is a great video that really explains how to lengthen or shorten your work even if you are working cables. It is from the Knitting Daily site and the video is done by Eunny Jang who I think is genius at all things knitting. Enjoy! and don’t be discouraged. Just think of this as part of your learning curve. You are on your way!
