120 Nordic Teddy Sweaters & Stocking Caps

About The Design:
These Nordic-style teddy sweaters and matching stocking caps are an adorable addition to my collection of teddy bear clothing – Sweatshirt Jacket, Aran Sweater with Matching Hat, and Dress with Shawl.

Sampled in widely available and loved heavy worsted (aran) weight yarns: Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool, Eco+, Plymouth Yarn Homestead, and Drops Nepal. These yarns knit easily at a worsted weight gauge, to create cohesive, long-lasting fabrics.

These little sweaters and caps make great traveling projects or evening knitting – the set can be made over the course of a few evenings. Your teddy bears, or the bears of loved ones, can be well-dressed this winter!

Sizes: S / M, to fit a 10-11” / 14-15” tall teddy bear, having a 9-10” / 13-15” belly or chest measurement.

Chest Circ: 11 / 14.5” Length: 5 / 7” Sleeve Length: 2.75 / 3 to 7” Sleeve Depth: 3 / 3” Cap Circ: 12 / 14.5” Total Cap Length: 14 / 15”
