This graduation pattern is part of the Knitables ‘Knit a Teddy’ collection. The ‘Knit a Teddy’ collection contains a selection of adorable animal teddies, cute outfits and fun accessories. Simply mix and match the teddies, outfits and accessories to create your perfect knitted teddy for that someone special!
This pattern includes the graduation gown, faculty colours, mortarboard and scroll. As with all the patterns in my ‘Knit a Teddy’ collection, this outfit is completely interchangeable and will fit all the animal teddies in the range. Alternatively this outfit would also fit a 15” teddy bear!
Please note this pattern is for the outfit only, it does NOT include the teddy!
The yarns listed may be substituted for any DK yarn. The yarn amounts are approximate.
