A classic teddy bear that is easy and quick to knit in chunky yarn, wearing overalls so it's ready for adventures with your little one! This size is great for children who want a bigger toy to cuddle and dress-up. Try my Breton Shore Outfit for more clothing options. For a younger child, you can embroider the eyes and omit the buttons on the overalls.
The finished toy is 12-14" tall, and all the pieces are knit flat and then assembled. The pattern is experienced-beginner level.
