Crochet Teddy Hand Puppet Pattern

Crochet Teddy Puppet Pattern


Materials
Double knit Yarn approximately 25 grams in main colour
4 mm crochet hook

Abbreviations
UK Terminology 
htr = half treble  (US hdc)
ch = chain
inc = increase
sts = stitches

Front
Make a 16 ch,
htr in 3rd ch from hook and in each ch to end = 14 htr, 2ch turn
Continue until work measures 3 1/2 inches, break yarn.

Arms
Ch 9 and htr across body of bear, 

ch 11 at the end of the row.

Htr in 2nd ch from hook and across all stitches, you should have 9 stitches for each arm and 14 for the body. 2ch turn.
Continue until arms measure 1 inch, break yarn.

Neck

 Rejoin yarn to 11th htr 2ch (counts as 1st st) and work 11 htr for neck, 2ch turn

Head
inc in 1st and last st = 14 sts, continue until head measures 2 1/2 inches from the beginning of neck.


 So there you have it one side of your Ted is done, now you can just continue down the back of your puppet reversing shapings or break your yarn and make another piece exactly the same.


 Make your bears features before you sew the two sides together it's much easier that way. 

To make the ears just back stitch across the two corners of the head.



Then decorate any way you wish, have fun! 

These Teds are great fun to make and be warned they are quite addictive too, make some and send them for this great cause, or for a cute little child in your life.


Please let me know if you have any questions or if something isn't clear.
