I am thrilled to bits…. a lady on Ravelry found a link to Knitting Today archives.
This means that people who are looking for patterns for Edward and Anastasia teddy bears (that I designed for Knitting Today) can now get the patterns online.
I can’t send them out because the publisher owns the copyright.
I did a LOT of designing for Knitting Today, so there are lotsa other patterns in there from me, too.
Here’s the link: https://archive.org/search.php?query=knitting%20today
I also searched for ‘Your Knitting Life’ which was a different title to the same magazine, and the Yellowstone Edward and Anastasia came up:
Yes! They can!

Edward and Anastasia Bear are 2 little bears that I have designed for ‘Your Knitting Life’ magazine (formerly known as ‘Knitting Today’), and they’ve been in each issue of the magazine since it started.
They are small… they’re 6 inches tall, and are knitted on 2.75 mm needles using Regia sock yarn.
Recently, on Ravelry, someone asked if Edward and Anastasia could be made larger, and the answer is, ‘You betcha’!
The humungous Edward Bear in the photo is 18 inches tall. If you knit with 8 or 9 mm needles and super bulky yarn or 2 strands of medium weight yarn held together, you will get one very large Edward Bear! Stitch through the hips to make them bendable.
I am so sorry, but the Edward and Anastasia patterns are no longer being made available by the publisher, and since I don’t own the copyright on them, I can’t give the pattern out. 😦
