What you need to know

Classic teddy bear knitting pattern, designed by Adrienne Fauser

This bear is all set for our birthday celebrations. Here, he is sporting a rather fetching garter stitch bow tie. He’s knitted using simple stocking stitch with moss stitch details on the inner ears and paw pads. Tease out your stuffing when filling your toy to get a nice, smooth finish.

Find the pattern for Benson's Shorts and T-shirt here.
