I think the Teddy face is too small and is totally lost on the jumper. Maybe you could make it bigger so that it looks like it's supposed to be there. I think it could look very cute.
I totally agree ,it needs to be bigger to be more obvious .
If you don’t win the bid put an ISO on U.K. Classified in Ravelry .
I would love to make this but have limited crochet skills .Perhaps it is worth a try.
If the pattern doesn’t mention the size of bead 8 could be used for lace weight and sometimes fingering although I prefer a size 6 for fingering. The bigger the number the smaller the bead .Miyuki are a very good make to get and as you are in the U.K. try Crystals and Ice and Charisma Beads .The latter may be a bit slow for a while as her husband,who helped in the business ,has recently died .
I just looked up details for a 3 ply yarn .
50grams = 1.7637 yards
230metres per ball or 251.531 yards
3 mm needles or between 2 and 3 USA size
Tension 32 sts and 40 rows should produce a 10x10 cm square but really tension is not so important with a shawl.
I assure you that 3 ply is finer than fingering .I do test knitting for an American lady and use 4 ply sometimes to replace fingering but I think the 4 ply is slightly thicker than fingering .The 3 ply I used recently has 3 strands of yarn twisted together whereas the 4 ply has 4 strands .
This lady I test knit for commented that different makes of yarn can have varying lengths per 50gram skein /ball .
Check what stitch is used and leave the bead off .It may be k,p ,or some other stitch.I have done quite a lot of beaded work but not always put the bead on the stitch.
3 ply is finer than fingering .7 oz is similar to 200grams ,as near as you can get .I use a conversion site to change weight or length.Are you able to get any Patons yarn in your area .I actually prefer Sirdar but tend to go with man made for baby items as the laundering is so easy .
Other yarn makes available in the U.K. which you may be able to get are James Brett ,Robin ,Peter Pan .
Please send a private message if you think I can help you with this .I am making baby stuff for a neighbour and have found there are very few colours available in 3 ply .
I know none of this thieving is good but it is good to know it happens regardless of where you live.Cars,motorbikes ,bikes and anything of value is taken here .
Thank you for the download ,which worked for me ,and it is now printed .
Lacy blankets not recommended for babies. Fingers and toes can get caught in holes. Blankets not advised for babies till older. Make hats and booties. Raining on your parade.
This has been said very many times but I have never seen any story about this being the case .Thousands of babies have been wrapped in lacy blankets , over the years , and I think this will continue .
I am sending you a Private message .
Beautiful in Rainy City so all dead heading done in readiness for our forecast bad weather.
