This isn’t my pattern, it’s a vintage teddy bear pattern from Weldons. I’ve made a few of these over the years for friends, and seemed to be getting a lot of hits from people looking for the pattern.
I originally found this pattern uploaded on a website which is no longer working. I had printed my copy of the pattern and typed it up on my old blog for readers that were interested, as there didn’t seem to be a way of getting hold of the original. When I was contacted on Ravelry by someone with a digital copy, I decided to post it up here as it had been generating so much interest. The teddies I knitted were created with variegated sock yarn using 3mm needles, so they came out somewhat smaller than the 17in suggested in the pattern. I worked them all in stocking stitch.
Please note this pattern is not my own and I take no responsibility for it.
