tamdoll knits a teddy ornament

Soft & cuddly doesn’t hold up, even when knit in a rib stitch. This coffee cup cozy looked like a baggy pair of pants. The next attempt was inter-species:

Cute, but flat and small …. looked like a chew toy. So – the Teddy ornament was born in less time than it took to watch a movie. A quick & easy pattern coming soon!

  1. I'm quite squeamish about bodyless animal toys.... Oh, I'm going to learn to knit soon. I've knitted before via books but I forgot everything so it means I didn't really learn it well if it could be so easily forgotten.
