I came across this teddy bear when I was looking for ideas for a baby toy. My baby nephew’s 1st birthday was coming up, and I wanted to make something special for his first birthday. After all, you only turn 1 once :D!

This teddy bear is very easy to make if you already know how to knit. To find out how you can make your own, keep on reading.

This teddy bear is not my original pattern, I found it in this amazing website dedicated to all things amigurumi, crochet, and knitsThe pattern is free, which is super nice and generous of the designer, but you may only use it for your own personal arts and crafts projects.

I know there are thousands of free patterns that you can find online for your arts and crafts projects. But there are several reasons why I chose this particular one.

For example, I love that it’s a Picasso bear! Pablo Picasso is probably one of my favorite artists of all times, and not just because I am from Spain. Actually, I find his art very inspirational.

What makes this bear a “Picasso” bear is the shirt; check out this picture of Picasso wearing his iconic stripes.

Another things that I love about this pattern is that you can find it in both English and Spanish, in case you only speak one of the two languages. Así que si no hablas inglés, o si no sabes hablarlo muy bien, todavía puedes tejer el osito siguiendo las instrucciones en español 😀
