  1. This is great! I'm going to be a dad and have been looking everywhere on google images for a teddybear for our little guy. This is by far the best I've seen so far. Is there a way I can buy one? I've never knit anything before.

    1. Congratulations! And thank you for the kind words! I don't actually sell the finished versions myself (designing keeps me so busy!)but I do know of a few people who do! If you send me an email at, I'll happily send you some more info :)

    2. I actually bought the pattern. Maybe it will mean more if I learn how to crochet and make it myself. If something happens and it doesn't come out right, I'll email you.
