Knitting tension: 16 sts x 21 rows on needles size 5 mm with 3 threads of Alpaca in stocking sts = 10 x 10 cm.
Inc. tips: Inc as follows: Make a yo, on the returning row twist and knit the yo to avoid a hole.

Teddy: The teddy is knitted with 3 threads of Alpaca. Make the legs first, then the body and arms and finally the head and then the ears.

Legs: Cast on 9 sts on needle size 5 mm with 3 threads of Alpaca and distribute sts evenly on 3 needles. Insert a marking thread at the beg of round.
Round 1-6: Knit in stocking sts, inc 3 sts evenly on each round – see Inc. tips above = 27 sts.
Round 7-11: Knit in stocking sts.
Round 12: *Slip a st as if to knit, K2 tog psso* , repeat 3 times, knit the remaining 18 sts in stocking sts = 21 sts in total.
Round 13-16: Knit in stocking sts
Round 17: K2, inc. 1 st, K19 = 22 sts.
Round 18-19: Knit in stocking sts
Round 20: K2, inc. 1 st, K20 = 23 sts.
Round 21-22: Knit in stocking sts.
Round 23: K3, inc. 1 st, K21 = 24 sts.
Continue in stocking sts until the piece measures 12 cm.

Now cast off for the thigh as follows:
K6 sts and put them on a thread (= the middle of the leg). Put the remaining sts on 1 needle and finish the leg in stocking sts back and forth on needle as follows: Knit until 1 st left and turn. Slip a st as if to knit and continue until 1 st left, turn, slip a st as if to knit and continue until 2 sts left, turn, slip a st as if to knit and continue until 2 sts left, turn, slip a st as if to knit and continue until 3 sts left, turn, slip a st as if to knit and continue until 3 sts left, turn slip a st as if to knit and K all sts. There are still 24 sts remaining incl the 6 sts from the thread.

Put the sts from the thread back on the needle and distribute the sts over 3 needles, knit 1 round of stocking sts but to make sure the 3 sts each side of the 6 sts from the thread become tight enough, knit them as follows: Pick 1 st up from previous round and K this one tog with the st on the needle (this means the sts are knitted double) – repeat for all 3 sts each side. Knit 1 round as follows: K20, cast off 2 sts (= the inside of the leg), K2 = 22 sts. Pull the opening tog at the bottom of the foot. Put the piece aside and knit the other leg, but knit the last round as follows: K8, cast off 2 sts (= the inside of the leg), K14 = 22 sts.

Body: Put both legs tog on the 3 needles, at the same time cast on 2 new sts in between the legs at the front and at the back = 48 sts. Distribute the sts so the beg of the round will be at the mid back of the teddy (it is a good idea to insert a marking thread). Measure from here onwards!

Round 1-2: Stocking sts
Round 3: K 14, K2 tog, K16, K2 tog, K14.
Round 4: K 14, K2 tog, K14, K2 tog, K14 = 44 sts
Continue in stocking sts until the piece measures 9 cm.
Next round: K6, K2 tog, K2 tog, K2, K2 tog, K2 tog, K2 tog, K8, K2 tog, K2 tog, K2 tog, K2, K2 tog, K2 tog, K6 = 34 sts
Next round: K2, K2 tog, K2 tog, K1, cast off 4 sts ( “armhole”), K1, K2 tog, K6, K2 tog, K1, cast off 4 sts (= “armhole”), K1, K2 tog, K2 tog, K2, then K the first 5 sts on round to the ”armhole”. This leaves 10 sts for the back and 10 sts for the front, continue to knit each piece separately.

Back piece: Knit in stocking sts, at the same time K the first 2 sts and then the last 2 sts tog (seen from the RS), repeat the dec on every other row until 4 sts left. Put these sts on a thread.

Front piece:
Knit as the back piece.

Right Arm:
Cast on and knit as the leg until round 16. Continue in stocking sts over all sts until the piece measures 12 cm.
Next round: K6, cast off 2 sts (= mid under arm), K 13 sts.
Continue back and forth on needle. K the the first 2 sts and then the last 2 sts tog (seen from the RS) on every other row until 5 sts left. Put the sts on a thread. Pull the opening tog at the bottom of the arm with the casting on thread, sew tight. Knit the other arm.

Left Arm:
Cast on and knit as right arm until the piece measures 12 cm.
Next round: K16, cast off 2 stitches for underarm, K3 sts.
Continue and finish as right arm.

Head: Put the remaining sts from the back piece, arm, front piece and arm (= 18sts) on the 3 needles as follows: Distribute the sts so the round begins mid back (it is a good idea to insert a marking thread).
Round 1: Stocking sts
Round 2: Inc 6 sts evenly distributed on round = 24 sts
Round 3-6: Inc 3 sts evenly distributed on each round.
Round 7-8: Inc 9 sts evenly distributed on each round = 54 sts. Continue in stocking sts until the piece measures 7 cm
Next round: K21 sts, *slip a st as if to knit, K2 tog, psso*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, K21 sts = 46 sts
Next round: K21 sts, slip a st as if to knit, K1, psso, slip a st as if to knit, K1, psso, K21 sts = 44 sts.
Next round: *K2, K2 tog*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times, K12, *K2 tog, K2*, repeat from *-* a total of 4 times = 36 sts
Next round: K7, K3 sts and then put them on a safety pin (= sts for the ear), K16 , K3 sts and then put them on a safety pin (= sts for the ear) K7. On the following round pick up 1 st behind each st from the safety pin (sts are now both on the safety pin and the needle). Knit in stocking sts until the piece measures approx. 14 cm. K all sts tog 2 by 2 = 18 sts. K all sts tog 2 by 2 one more time, cut the thread and pull through the remaining 9 sts.

Ear: Pick up 3 sts from one safety pin. Knit the ear in garter sts throughout (= knit all rows).
Row 1: K1, make a yo, K1, make a yo, K1 = 5 sts
Row 2: K the 5 sts
Row 3: K1, *make a yo, K1*, repeat from *-* until finish = 9 sts.
Row 4: K the 9 sts.
Row 5: K1, *make a yo, K1*, repeat from *-* until finish = 17 sts. Continue to knit in garter sts until the ear measures approx. 6 cm.
Next row: *K all sts tog 2 by 2 and finish with K1, K all sts on the returning row*, repeat from *-* 3 times = 3 sts left on row. Cast off. Fill the ear with cotton wool and sew it tight. Repeat for the other safety pin.

Assembly: Fill the teddy with cotton wool through the hole underneath the arm. Sew the opening in between the legs. Sew the eyes, the snout and the mouth with a remainder of darker brown or black. Sew the arms onto the body, pull the arms down so they will be sewn to the body approx 4 rounds underneath the first casting off for the “armhole” (this is done to give the teddy a bit of stomach).
