I love knitting and crocheting comfort/compassion/pocket bears.
Here’s Tottie Tomato with a batch of bears that I just knitted.
By the way, in the video, I explained a little about where ‘Tottie Tomato’ came from.
Back to Comfort or Pocket Bears…….
Over the years, I’ve made thousands of them and given them away.
Here’s my newest version… knitted, and then folded and stitched, and oh so sweet!
The pattern is: Knit 20 stitches for 22 rounds and then follow the instructions in this video:
Happy knitting! And, may the little bears bring you delight in the making, and joy in the giving!

I am so delighted to be able to announce that Edward and Anastasia Bear have some thrilling news!
The stork has made a delivery!

Hope Brownie isn’t keeping Edward and Anastasia up all night…

BTW, if you don’t know what I am talking about, Edward and Anastasia Bear are tiny knitted teddy bears that I designed for the magazine, ‘Your Knitting Life’, back when it was called, ‘Knitting Today’.
Every issue has a different set of outfits for Edward and Anastasia, including their wedding outfits.
My sister likes them best of anything that I have designed in the more than 40 years that I have been a professional designer. 🙂
So, that makes them extra special to me!
