Oh, sorry, I thought it was the crochet bear. This one is on the pattern site under toys and as you say called Simple Bear pattern: .
He's very sweet - is there no holding you?

I know what you mean. I am ALWAYS losing stuff on this goldmine of a site! I myself lost the teddy bear pattern so many times that I copied it onto my computer, so here it is, with apologies to the kind person who first posted it:

Knitted Teddy Bear
Use any yarn and choose appropriate needles.

Teddy can be knitted all in one colour, or change colours to give him a jumper and/or trousers (pants).

The whole bear is knitted in one piece and folded in half and sewn up. It is knitted in garter stitch.

Legs: Cast on 8 stitches knit 16 rows (garter stitch).

Break off yarn and make another leg.

Body: knit across both legs (16 sts) and knit 15 more rows.

Arms: Cast on and knit 8 stitches at the beinnning of the next 2 rows.

Knit 6 more rows.

Cast off 8 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows.

Head: knit 38 rows.

Arms: Cast on and knit 8 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows.

Knit 6 more rows.

Cast off 8 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows.

Body: knit 16 rows

Legs: knit 8 stitches( put the other 8 on a safety pin) turn and knit another 15 rows, cast off.

Second leg: pick up the remaining 8 stitches and knit 16 rows for the second leg. Cast off.

Make up teddy and stuff with approved toy stuffing.

Sew on a smiley face.

Stitch across the corners of the head to make the ears.

( I drew up a schematic to mark off the changes for the colours of the pants and jumper. I also stitched half the sleeve and added 3 rows of white to make the hands (paws). )
