Teddy-Ghan crochet - JesseAnne

                       {Created in Honor of our first Granddaughter JesseAnne}
                            "Comforting Babies, One Stitch At A Time"


Teddyghan measures 20" x 20" around, PLUS head

This pattern has been "completly re-written" by me (JMSQ) & work's up nicely for "both" a Preemie Baby & full term baby with "almost" the same results as the full size Bearghans which Pat Liles created. I so hope you enjoy using this pattern & Blessing your Precious Babies with the Love of a Teddyghan... God Bless 2004

Teddyghan Pattern:
Material's Needed:

1 Special Head Granny Square- Pattern Below

5 – 6” squares for body (Use your favorite pattern)

3 – half grannies – Pattern Below

Darning Needle


NOTE: "Full term Babies"
"H" hook for squares, "G" hook for face pieces

Use 8" or 9" squares, and add 2 rows #2 for head pattern, add 2 more rows for 1/2 Grannie as well, For the eyes , instead of hdc around with black, you dc around.For the ears, add 1 more stitch; And for the muzzle- because your are doing this for a baby you still can't stuff it, so you don't want it to be as big as the muzzle for the full size Bearghans, so you can leave it as written.

** Remember you are making the eyes bigger so the muzzle won't look out of place with the bigger head if you just drop the position by lowering it on the face 1 row

  1. A link to your pattern has been posted on Pinterest.com and has become very popular. I am using it to make baby blankets for Carolina family planning center which is supported by our church as an alternative for young pregnant girls who want to keep and raise their babies rather than aborting them. Thank you for the pattern.
