They are sitting teddies, so I needed to find a crochet pattern for a carrier they could sit in.
After much searching, I found a pattern on Ravelry for a Newborn Hanging Nest by crochet designer Chelsea Hathaway. It's just right for what I needed. Thank you Chelsea!
It's a free crochet pattern you can find and download it here.
I had to tweak the pattern a little as this is a pattern for a newborn cradle after all!
But, by using DK yarn rather than chunky, and adding a few stitches to make the cradle smaller but wider, it fits the little teddies a treat!
So I have added 2 of them to the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Store.
One is in turquoise mix and you can find it here:
Crochet Cradle Toy with A Small Soft Teddy Inside
And one is in lilac mix yarn and you can find this one here:
Small Soft Teddy sitting in its own crochet swinging cradle toy
So, this has been a double post really :)
It's for a free crochet pattern and it's to promote my lovely little hanging cradle baskets with teddies too.
So that can't be bad 😀
Thanks for reading
