My pattern for Bedtime Ted is in this month’s edition of Knit Now magazine – issue 14.
The inspiration for the design was my 8 year old niece, who always takes the same Bedtime Bunny to bed with her every night. I adapted the idea to make a Ted instead!
I’m particularly pleased with the design of the nightshirt. It is really simple garter stitch, and knitted sideways. This means the neck opening is created by casting on and off as you knit.
Ted is knitted in super soft merino yarn from John Arbon, though he would also be fine in any other DK yarn. The pattern will be available from my website in about 9 months time – until then you will have to look in the magazine.
If you do knit one for a small person to take to bed with them, I suggest you knit 2, and hide one in a secret location! This will save bedtime tantrums when Ted number 1 cannot be found!
Do share a photo on the facebook page of your Ted – I’d love to see him.
