Hi Joan

I have tried to attach pattern for small bears (if you look at my pictures, my neighbour Marian has knitted a lot! I will copy and paste below, but if you would like the pattern to print off let me have your email address and I'll do it that way!

4mm needles -

Double Knitting Wool -

Garter stitch used throughout (knit every row)

Cast on 8 stitches and work 16 rows.

Break off wool and cast on 8 stitches and work 16 rows to form other leg. Knit across both legs (16 sts) and complete 8 rows.

Cast on 8 stitches at beginning of next 2 rows. Work 8 rows.

Cast off 8 stitches at beginning of next 2 rows. Now work 38 rows on these 16 sts.

Cast on 8 stitches at beginning of next 2 rows. Work 8 rows.

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

Using only first 8 stitches, work 16 rows and then cast off.

Return to remaining 8 stitches and work 16 rows and then cast off.

Sewing up & Filling:

Fold knitted piece in half lengthways. The fold becomes the top of the head. Join seam around teddy, leave a small gap between the legs. Turn right side out. Backstitch a diagonal line across corner of head to form ears. Stuff (with flame resistant stuffing) & stitch closed area left for stuffing. Embroider nose & eyes using different colour wool. Take a double thickness of wool and thread round the neck, going in every few stitches, (make sure no loops left hanging loose). Draw wool tight to form neck & secure ends. Knit a scarf for teddy & tie it round neck (secure in place if for a baby or sm

Hi Joan. Welcome to the group.  I have been inspired by the people on this site and also decided to knit some teddies.  I have used the following pattern, it is quite straight forward and produces a cute little bear.  Will be posting photo's soon.

Good luck

Hi Joan

If it's a knitted teddy pattern that you need, this is another alternative

Hi Joan-

First off, welcome to the group.  I am writing from Kansas in the USA.  I just joined in June and it actually has taken a lot of time to decode the pages and figure out what is really needed.  The website is like a tanlged yarn when you start with add-on information and you feel like you double back a lot.  It probably would help if someone who was knowledgeable of the history of the organziation would reorganize it.  One helpful page I found was here:

Okay, the next thing I wanted to ask is what you are trying to download in patterns.  Is it from this site or one such as Lion Brand, or a blog?  Let me know and I would gladly try to help.  I am still very much in a quandry over what to make and am starting realize through the forum that I am too literal...just make it warm and sizes baby-age12 or so. The other advice I keep getting is to read the ezines.  If you access the site above, look at the Table of Contents on the left side for ezines.  I need to do that.  I understand that the stories and pics will clear up a lot of things.

     Best of luck as you go through getting started.  Let me say, after 2 1/2 months I have made some things, but have not sent any yet.  I bought mailers today, but do not know if they are right.  I have some new socks and undies that I bought and they should be washed so they are not classified when sent as new and get a charge put on them.


Happy knitting/crocheting and let me know if you still need someone to respond to downloads.

Hi Joan, welcome to the forum and the  UK group. If you mean the sewn teddies that Pam Johnson posted they're here: and if you want the knitted one it's here: or on the Samaritan's Purse site.. Hope one of these is what you were looking for.
