Teddy's Cowboys Sweater

9 posts in this topic


Two weeks ago my dog (whose name is Ted E. Bear) got hold of my stuffed teddy bear, tore his pretty red ribbon off, and chewed off his eyes. I decided that poor teddy needed a new shirt. I found a pattern for a Pullover Sweater for Babies, at Kelly's blog page, I adapted it and made Teddy a new sweater. I am posting it here with permission from Kelly (who told me she wants to make a couple for her dad & brother). So Kelly, here's to you and your great baby sweater pattern!


The sweater pattern can be found at:


My changes are as follows:


Follow Kelly's pattern to Row 8,

Rows 9-15: Ch 3 Do not turn, work in rounds now,dc in each dc around, join.

Rnd 16: ch 1 sc around, join. Fasten off.



Attach yarn at middle of underarm with sl st.

Row 1: ch 3, dc around, join.

Rows 2-4: Repeat row 1. At the end of Row 4 fasten off.

Row 5: join white with sl st in ending st, ch 1, sc around. Fasten off

Row 6-7: join gray, ch 1 sc around. Fasten off.

Row 8: join white, ch 1 sc around. Fasten off.

Row 9-10: join blue, ch 1 sc around. Fasten off.


Repeat for other sleeve.
