Ki's Teddy Bear

by Ki Huls ©2000

The number of double stitches in the chains are what worked for me; You can alter the whole look of the bear by adding more stitches to make him "portly", or skinny him up by making less stitches. The pattern below is for the earring, but it can be adapted to almost anything.

Rings off Split Rings (RSR)
  1. Start the split ring with shuttle #1 making the stitches normally.
  2. Pick up shuttle #2, and tat the unflipped stitches you need.
  3. Remove the ring loop you are working on from your hand.
  4. Using #2 shuttle, make a ring with flipped stitches.
  5. Put the original split ring loop back on your hand and continue making the unflipped stitches.
    You can make as many rings off of the sr as you like.
    Note: ONLY on the UNFLIPPED half of the split ring.
  6. When you are done, pull the split ring closed.
