Pattern Description:

Includes one PDF file on 16 pages with all the instructions needed to make your own classic 4-way jointed teddy bear with a butterfly costume.

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), starting am oval piece with a chain, finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails. Pattern includes unlimited support from me via email.

Gauge:

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:

  • 23 cm (9") from head to toe, with DK weight cotton-linen blend and a 2,25 mm crochet hook.

Materials:

  • Yarn. I used DK weight cotton and linen blend, 112 m = 50 g (122 yd = 50 g) / 8 ply / 11 wpi. You will need about 105 g or 235 m (260 yd) of yarn - 50 g for the body (yarn A), 55 g for the costume (yarn B) and a few grams to decorate the wings.
  • 2,25 - 2,75 mm crochet hook (US size 1/B - 2/C) or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding for stuffing.
  • 9 mm (1/2") safety eyes and 15 mm triangular safety nose or buttons, beads, felt etc.
  • Two sets of 20 mm and two sets of 15 mm plastic doll joints or safety eyes and plastic washers or buttons and strong thread
  • Embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, sewing needle, scissors, stitch marker.

Suggested yarn:

260 yards of DK weight

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Katia
