Pattern Description:

Includes one PDF file on 10 pages with all the instructions needed to make your own tiny teddy bear.

For a little preview, take a look at the first three pages -


You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarns. Make sure to pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • About 12,5cm (5") tall.


  • Yarn. I used DK weight wool and alpaca blend, 50g = 125m / 8 ply / 11 wpi / 3: light. You will need about 20g or 50m (55yds) of yarn.
  • 2,25 - 2,75 mm crochet hook (US size 1/B - 2/C) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc for stuffing.
  • 6 mm (1/4") safety eyes or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Embroidery floss.
  • A few grams of yarn for the headband and matching thread, or lace and matching thread, ribbon and buttons.
  • Yarn needle, sewing needle, scissors, stitch marker.

Suggested yarn:

55 yards of DK weight
