Filled with fluff and love, a little bear made the long journey from North Carolina to Illinois to meet his new friend.
I used the Magic Loop Teddy Bear pattern by Julie Tarsha, and as one can guess, it calls for the magic loop method. This ended up being a learning experience. I had never used the magic loop method, but it was a challenge worth taking on. The pattern also required a toe up sock cast-on — not something I’m particularly well practised in using. Rather than sticking with my circular needles, I occasionally worked on double points.
Making something with love can sometimes take a little longer than anticipated. I missed my goal of having this little one ready for my friend Julie’s baby shower. As it turned out, little buddy was a month early. Bear was a month late. All in all though, I think they make a good pair!
