My Hand at Designing?

Okay, so don’t laugh :oops: but I was [color=blue]thinking [/color]of designing a sweater. I have some stash yarn, but not enough for an full size sweater. (I don’t want to attempt a design in full scale yet anyway). So I thought … :oops: … well, … :oops: what about my … giggle teddy bear. [color=red]Mature adult women can have teddy bears![/color] :lol:

Anyhoo … besides chest, torso lenth, arm lengh/circumfrance, what other measurements should I take (if I gather the b@!!$ to do this)??

teddy bears are a knitting sub-culture to themselves. Here is a good place to start: http://www.knitting.about.com/library/bldollsteddyfree.htm

I can believe it! I purchased “The Knitted Teddy Bear” not too long ago. I haven’t actually made bear from it though. Maybe I should do that first… Hmmm?? Food for thought …

Thanks for the link!

Sounds fun e.k.!

Hmmm, you’ll probably want to measure the head so make sure a neck can accomodate it, or include a buttoned opening or V-neck.

have fun!

Great thought! I hadn’t considered it even though Number Five (teddy’s name ;)) has a pretty big head … and tummy now that I think of it. :lol:

LOL, that’s a hilarious name! After the movie Short Circuit came out my brother and I used to call each other Number 5 all the time!

I grew up on Short Circuit and adore that movie! But I bought Number Five from Sax 5th Ave ([color=red]on sale[/color] ;)), so that’s what inspired the name. Of course, it didn’t hurt that Johnny #5 came to mind after I decided on the name :lol:

Number Five is alive!! No disassemble Number Five!!!

The first chapter in SnB Nation has a comprehensive guide to designing/chainging sweater patterns. Well worth a look, ek!!!

Good luck!
