It was Jenny’s birthday recently and I needed something a bit different for a card for her. After some head scratching, I decided on a knitted Teddy bear shape holding a heart. OK, decision made, now what? I decided that I could use a pattern for a heart shape that I have in another pattern but the Teddy was another matter – I’d have to design one myself! I’ve never done this before, of course, so I could only start knitting and hope for the best. So Flat Ted was born.
As I knitted, I made full notes, including the fact that I knitted the wrong leg first (which has been corrected in the pattern). Because it was made from scratch, it’s not perfect, but I was pleased with the result. Jenny was absolutely thrilled! She fell in love with him right away!
Having made Flat Ted, I now have a desire to come up with other knitted shapes.
The pattern is available from my Free Patterns page.
