Silly Striped Teddy

Lion Brand® Vanna's Palettes


Exact gauge is not essential to this project.


kfb (knit into front and then back)
An increase worked as follows:
1. Knit the next st through the front loop, but do not remove the st from your left hand needle.
2. Knit the same st once more, this time inserting your needle through the back loop of the st. You will have created 2 loops (sts) on your right hand needle.
3. Drop the st from your left hand needle – you have increased 1 st.

French Knot
Thread needle and bring from back to front through knitted piece. Wrap yarn around needle 3 times, insert needle back into knitted piece close to where it emerged. Tighten knot.


1. Teddy is worked flat, then seamed and stuffed.
2. Arms, legs and ears are worked separately, then sewn on.
3. When you see "– 12 sts" in the instructions, this tells you how many sts you should have at the end of that specific row.
