This is an easy and cute design that is perfect for the beginner to more advanced bear maker. When completed with worsted weight medium #4 yarn the completed bear will stand about 9 inches tall.
The stitches needed to make your own bear like Dominic include the single crochet, increase, decrease, half-double crochet, double-crochet, slip stitch, & half-double and double crochet increase and decrease. I have provided information in this pattern that will help you with the half-double and double increases and decreases.
I have had several requests for a larger sized teddy pattern that can be made with traditional materials that can be found at local and chain craft supply stores (i.e. Michael's and Joann Fabrics). This pattern was designed to fit those requests! **Both bears pictured in this listing were made from this pattern to show you that it is compatible with acrylic punch thread if you want to make a miniature sized bear in this style.
*** If you choose to make and sell a bear from this pattern, I respectfully request that you add to either your hang tag or auction listing that your bear was created from a pattern designed by Stefanie Devlin of TheTinyToyBox. I also request that you do not copy, share, resell, or forward this pattern to anyone. All rights to this pattern are owned by Stefanie Devlin of TheTinyToyBox. Thank You in advance for your cooperation!

As you can probably tell from my shop & finished item photos, my biggest crafty passion is crocheting. I enjoy all aspects of the skill from designing and pattern writing right down to the feel of the thread through my fingers.
