Pattern Description:

Benjamin the Bear and Euki the Koala are pleased to meet you!

They've been best friends since they were wee babies and have traveled the country teaching kids about the differences between bears and marsupials. (It's REALLY an important issue to the marsupial population.) Parents and teachers LOVE these guys because they teach kids a very important lesson at the end of each presentation: "We are all very different from each other, but our differences make us unique and special... If we keep our minds open and take the time to learn about and understand others, the world can be a happier place! In fact, you may even become best friends with someone you would have never guessed possible." :)

About the pattern:

This duo pattern is filled with 20 pages of clear instructions, helpful photos, and printer-friendly versions of each pattern to help you crochet two 15" tall animals. Kids (or the child within any adult) won't be able to resist hugging them and playing with their floppy arms and legs.

YOU ARE WELCOME TO SELL THE ANIMALS THAT YOU MAKE FROM MY PATTERN! Since you'll be dedicating lots of time and love to crocheting, I'll totally support your efforts to earn some money! :) PLEASE READ the copyright portion of my pattern for more information. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at

I'd love to see the results of your hard work! Please share photos of your new animals on my Facebook wall.

Thanks again for visiting this page, and happy crocheting!

Excellent One of my all time favorites  September 27, 2013

I've made this bear a couple of times now, and I love it! It's a huge undertaking, so unless you have a lot of spare time to make it, it's going to take you a few days.

Helloooo! I'm currently working hard toward becoming an elementary school teacher (my #1 passion) -- I've been taking classes, working as a substitute teacher, volunteering as a Girl Scout leader, studying for exams, volunteering at an elementary school, and working as a group tutor. In between all of this, I try to remember to BREATHE and make some time to get away from the hustle and bustle ...
