Used the teddy in a square knitting pattern as a project for my two grandchildren renaming it the Magical Mystery Square but did not reveal the end result. They were absolutely intrigued and after choosing five colours of wool each, could be seen for the next few days knitting the squares. Lots of guesses - could it be a glove or a sock? After sewing the seams and filling the tubes, James (9) thought it could be made into a rocket ship, but Emilia (6) decided it could be a lighthouse. When they had sewn the arms and legs, they were delighted with the dolls they had made. James decided to keep his as an invisible man without a face, but Emilia decided on a girl with plaits.
