The Meaning Behind The Classic Teddy Crochet Pattern: A Special Teddy Bear For A Special Cause
As many of you already know, a portion of the Darling Jadore eco-friendly collection of knitting patterns and crochet patterns goes directly to The Nature Conservancy each year. As a business, we feel strongly about donating to worthy causes and giving back a portion of our proceeds to charities and organizations that we feel deeply about. So the entire design idea for The Classic Teddy came about because I wanted the ASPCA to be an organization that Darling Jadore also gave to each year. We are so thrilled and proud to now say that Darling Jadore is an official Business Ambassador for the ASPCA. As a national leader in animal rescue and protection, the ASPCA fights every day for vulnerable animals needing care, protection, and love.
So when I went to design a knitting pattern or crochet pattern that would relate to this worthy cause, I didn't want it to be a fashion or accessory item. I thought extensively about blankets or other home decor-related items, but ultimately decided on an ultra-classic teddy bear design. Teddy bears are symbols of love, care, and compassion, and evoke feelings and thoughts of tenderness, universal love, and an openness of heart. Teddy bears are often gifted during a wide range of moments: from crises and trauma situations (i.e., court bears), to birthday gifts or a romantic surprise. In any situation, a teddy bear is always gifted from a place of love, kindness, and affection. For these reasons, I thought The Classic Teddy was a perfect design to represent our annual donation to the ASPCA. We're thrilled that you can now join us in advocating for vulnerable animals to receive the protection and care they deserve with your purchase of The Classic Teddy crochet pattern. Please take a moment to learn more about their work.
More Details About The Classic Teddy: A Cuddly & Soft Amigurumi Crocheted Bear
It's not hard to instantly fall in love with The Classic Teddy! With silky-soft, scruffy-like fur, a pink nose and mouth, and being the perfect size, this teddy definitely steals hearts. I specifically designed this teddy bear to be a classic shape and structure, and to have the stature to sit upright on its own. At approximately 12" (30.48 cm) tall and a body circumference of approximately 17" (43.18 cm), The Classic Teddy is a wonderful size for both children and adults alike. I specifically chose the yarn for this teddy to be not only super soft and cuddly, but to also have a scruffy-like look, which reminds me of vintage teddy bears. Crocheted using super bulky weight (category 6) yarn, teddy works up super quickly too, which is always a plus!
The nose and mouth for The Classic Teddy crochet pattern requires simple embroidery techniques, and there are detailed tutorial photos provided within the crochet pattern for reference. I experimented with teddy's embroidered nose using brown, blue, and pink yarn before ultimately landing on pink as the final option -- think it added a sweet touch. I experimented with both embroidered eyes and safety eyes, before finally deciding to use safety eyes. Getting the proportions for The Classic Teddy was overall the trickiest part of designing this teddy bear. I wanted to make sure that teddy's legs were big enough to allow her to sit upright on her own, but without looking too big. Likewise, I wanted her arms to be long enough to lay comfortably at her side without gangling. Her muzzle, ears, and tail were also tricky to get the exact proportions that would make her look *extra* cute and adorable. Overall, I'm thrilled with how she turned out, and The Classic Teddy has quickly become a teddy that friends have instantly said "awww" upon first seeing!
Who Can Crochet The Classic Teddy? What's The Skill Level Of The Crochet Pattern?
I specifically designed The Classic Teddy crochet pattern to be suitable for advanced-beginner crocheters and to work up quickly and effortlessly. Since this crochet pattern requireds super bulky-weight (category 6) yarn, this teddy works up so fast and it's a breeze to crochet! This crochet pattern requires only the simplest of crochet stitches and techniques and crocheting in the round. The nose and mouth for The Classic Teddy is created via simple embroidery stitches, and the pattern contains detailed instructions and photos. Don't be intimidated by the embroidery -- it takes less than a few minutes to finish and is a breeze. Overall, The Classic Teddy crochet pattern is very easy and fun and suitable for advanced-beginner crocheters.
Additionally, inside each Darling Jadore digital knitting pattern and crochet pattern, we provide a "Stitch Glossary". This is a glossary containing all the abbreviations within the pattern. These abbreviations are also linkable and when you click on them, you will be redirected to video tutorials and photo tutorials on how to work this stitch or technique. Our stitch glossaries also contain written-out text explaining how to work a certain stitch for quick reference. The Stitch Glossary within each Darling Jadore knit or crochet pattern is catered to that particular pattern; therefore, you will only have abbreviations and links for the actual techniques and stitches required by that pattern. We think the addition of the Stitch Glossary within each Darling Jadore. For example, if "dc" shows up in your crochet pattern, then within the Stitch Glossary it will say: "Dc: Double crochet" and if you click on "Dc" (which is a clickable link), you'll be redirected to a video tutorial for this technique.
