Give your little ones something cute to curl up with at night with this Nearly No-Seams Knit Teddy. With cleverly-placed decreases and the magic loop method, the only seams on this cute little knit teddy bear are on his ears. If your kids are anything like I was as a child, they love their stuffed animals.

Those things can get expensive, so making your own is always preferred. Besides, knitted amigurumi patterns allow you to add personalization and love that you just don't get with store bought toys.

Here's the panda version with doubled cotton/bamboo yarn and size 7 (US) needles.

A great pattern for the teddy. I have heard of the magic loop in crochet where it pertains to beginning a project, but I didnt know it was a stitching pattern in knitting. I am always glad to find new techniques and new projects. This looks very interesting. Would make a great gift for a lucky little one.

Love these bears, especially the little jumpers they're wearing. They'd make perfect stocking stuffers or a baby shower gift, customized to baby's particular color scheme. Really nice!

Some left-over white wool has now made 2 baby gifts. I cut black felt for the nose and eyes, using paper patterns I made by trying out different sizes with a black marker. I worked with an online image of a real baby polar bear to get the proportions right. This goes quickly and is lots of fun.

Note that the wine bottle is just to show the size of the bear.

I have been looking for this pattern and here it is. I have no problem with the toe up cast on since I prefer to start my socks that way. And guess who this bear will be for? Me! Better than "build a bear" and a lot less costly. And I can make them in different colors. Thank you for the patten.

This is a super cute stuffed teddy bear pattern. However, I noticed it is marked Easy above on this page and I would say it definitely is not. There are some advanced stitches required and you certainly have to have some experience working with this type of small complex project.

Fairly easy knit Teddy. Every child should be gifted a teddy bear. My three sons had one when they were tots and each one cherished theirs.

These are SO cute. I'm not advanced enough for these guys yet, but knitting toys like these are my next big learning project!

These bears are super cute and I love their faces, however, although I am an advanced knitter I have had a little problem with some of the stitches on the pattern such as 'turkish / toe up' cast on method which i had to google as the link didn't work and M1R and M1L it would be helpful to have images showing exactly how to lift the centre bar and knit with it and how to do the cast on.

These little guys are so adorable. I like that it is done with a minimum of seams and the little sweaters are perfect. Was a little confused as to the recommendation that you use 1 or 2 size smaller needle which would put you down to around a 1. Stitches in the picture didn't look that small. Think I will stick with the smaller recommendation of a 3.

just what I am looking for to make for my charity knitting.

Have come adrift on teddies with 2 needles. How do you M1R at the beginning of a row?
