✨ Gathering Your Crafting Treasures ✨

  • 1 x 50g ball of Pingouin Mosaic in Beige (M) and Cream (B)
  • 1 x 50g ball Family Knit DK in Black (A) and Red (C)
  • Needles: 3mm and 3 3/4 mm
  • Safe, non-flammable toy stuffing
  • 2 safety toy eyes to give our teddy that charming look!

Let’s Dive Into the Steps!

I won’t go into every tiny detail here (to avoid overwhelming you!), but to get started, here’s a sneak peek:

For the legs, you’ll need to craft two. Begin with the 3mm needles and A, casting on 11 sts for that boot’s toe. Work that stitch and follow the pattern rows for the perfect teddy legs!

His body, head, ears, arms, and even his cute little sweater follow after. And yes, let’s not forget that sporty scarf!

Stitch up your teddy, fill him with love (and stuffing!), and there you go: a heart-stealing footballer teddy that’ll be the talk of the town!

If you’re on the hunt for more exciting knitting projects, here are a couple of more patterns you might adore:

  • A majestic Elephant with droopy ears, perfect for snuggles!
  • A cuddly Sheep that’s oh-so-soft to touch!
  • And a chic Girls Sweater that’s all the rage this season!
