Teddy Bear Puppets 

PATTERN DETAILS

RELEASE DATE:  September 2003.  This puppet was originally designed for Alpacas Magazine and appeared in its Spring 2003 issue.

DESCRIPTION:  This is a set of 2 teddy bear puppets: a boy in a sweatshirt and blue jeans with pockets, and a girl in dress with a hair bow. The facial features and star on the sweatshirt are embroidered with duplicate stitch.

SIZE:  Adult hand size.

SKILL REQUIRED:  Intermediate. You need to be able to knit circularly on double point needles.

MATERIALS:

  • YARN:  Sport or DK weight yarn of any fiber to achieve gauge. I used DK weight 100% alpaca from America’s Alpaca. The yardages below are given for making a pair of puppets —
    • Main Color  – about 140 yards (130 m) for the girl’s dress, boy’s sweatshirt, and embroidery of the faces. I used 2 50-gram skeins of a dark red.
    • Contrast Color  – about 85 yards (79 m) for edgings for girl’s dress and hair bow, boy’s blue jeans, and embroidery of the faces. I used less than one skein of blue.
    • Body Color – about 65 yards (60 m) for the heads and hands of the puppets. I used less than one skein of cocoa brown.
    • Embroidery Colors – about a yard (1 m) each of the following colors: black or other color for nose, red for mouth (I used the dark red used as the main color), blue or other color for eyes (I used the blue of the contrast color), and white for the star.
  • NEEDLES:  For the girl puppet, you need one set of double point needles in U.S. Size 4 (3.5 mm), or size to achieve gauge, and another set of U.S. Size 3 (3.25 mm). For the boy puppet, you need one set of double point needles in U.S. Size 4 (3.5 mm), or size to achieve gauge.
  • MISCELLANEOUS:
    • 2 stitch markers
    • Darning needle
    • Stitch holders (optional).

GAUGE:  On size 4 (3.5 mm) needles, about 24 sts per 4 inches (10 cm) in stockinette stitch. Row gauge is not important.
