What you need to know

Follow our easy knitting patterns to outfits for Val Pierce's teddy bear trio, including a dress, waistcoat and baby romper suit

Create adorable outfits for our charming teddy bears. The dress features a tiny bit of colourwork along the lower edge but don't worry if you've never done it before. We’ve provided guidance on following charts and you can always Swiss darn the motifs instead if you get stuck. We love Baby Bear’s garter stitch romper suit and check out Daddy’s bow tie and waistcoat.
