Teddy bear baby afghan

Posted by bobbiw2 (My Page) on

Back in the 90's one of my daughters friends made an afghan for the baby my daughter was expecting. It was a Teddy bear in a sort of reverse filet pattern. In other words, the background was solid and the outline of the bear is where the holes/openwork was. It was not done in squares, but rather 1 large bear on the whole afghan.
The pattern would be at least 18 years old, as that is the age of my grandson.
I have been searching for this pattern with no luck and I was wondering if any of you kind people might steer me in the right direction.
I appreciate any help that you can give to me.
May you have a blessed day,

Hi dowlinggram,
I appreciate your help with this.
I have googled for this pattern for quite some time now. I have used so many different search terms, and still no luck.
I have found a few that are similar, but not the one.
We have decided to use a pattern that was given to us that is similar enough that Pam feels it will work for her.
Once again, thanks for your help and may you have a blessed day!

What is the name of the book, missed that post. Only thing I could find was one done with squares where the background was solid. Mary

This would not be it?

RE: Teddy bear baby afghan

She said reverse filet which is the one at the link I posted but that one is cute. Mary
