October Knitting Zoo Patterns – Teddy Bears!
by Meri McGraw
One of the world’s most beloved toys was named in honor of
President Theodore Roosevelt, after he refused to shoot a bear during
a Mississippi hunting trip in November 1902
I’m not sure if we talked about this in the meeting, but since we are focusing on charity knitting, I wanted to include a link for the Mother Bear Project. It is a simple pattern, although not free, but it goes to a good cause:
The Knitting Zoo would like to have some wonderful examples of animals
❖ Please feel free to knit (or crochet) any animal for the “zoo”, you don’t have to follow the monthly “animal” and can use any pattern.
❖ Patterns we provide are free and will be posted on our website
❖ Bring your finished animals to any KG of the Desert meeting. You will be registered for each animal you knit. There will be a special prize drawing at the luncheon in March for anyone that has knitted (or crocheted) an animal.
❖ Animals should be at least 5” in size – no miniatures!
❖ All animals will become property of KG of the Desert and will be donated to a shelter (To be announced) after our luncheon in March.
