Crochet Teddy Bear – Free Pattern!

Amigurumi

Hello there!  I hope you are all enjoying spring as much as I am. After such a long winter its so nice to be able to hike and spend time outdoors with my kiddos. I haven’t been in the mood to make hats and scarves with this gorgeous weather we’ve been having, so I thought I’d work on my amigurumi skills and make a cute teddy bear for my 5 year old son to cuddle. And of course to post the pattern on this blog to share with you!

Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern

What you will need:

Here is what you will need to make this snuggly teddy bear:

  • Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky Yarn in three colours.  I used:
    • Stormy Grey Color A: (approx.  149 yards)
    • Champagne White Color B: (approx. 75 yards)
    • Pure Black Color C: (Just enough to embroider nose)
  • Size H/8  – 5.0mm Crochet Hook
  • Safety Eyes or buttons (if you are making this for a very small child it is safest to embroider on the eyes).
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Marker or scrap piece of yarn
  • Poly-Fil for stuffing the bear
  • Yarn or tapestry needle to sew the pieces together


Finished Size:

Approximately 12 inches tall with legs extended (8 inches sitting).

Abbreviations:

SC: Single Crochet

ST: Stitch

SC2Tog: Single Crochet Two Together

Notes Before you Start:

  1. I worked my single crochets in the back loop to make it easier to count my rows and I personally just like the way it looks.
  2. Work your rounds in spirals, do not join at the beginning of each round.   You will need to use a stitch marker to mark your rounds.
  3. Each round has the total number of stitches for the round in brackets.  If you are unsure its always a good idea to count your stitches.

Pattern:




Head and Body:

With Color A, make a magic circle or adjustable ring.

Round 1: Make 6 SC in magic circle (6 St).

Round 2:  SC twice in each stitch (12 St).

Round 3: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next stitch.  Repeat from * until end of round (18 St).

Round 4: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 2 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (24 St).

Round 5: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 3 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (30 St).

Rounds 9-14: SC in each stitch (48 St).

Round 15: *SC2Tog, SC in next 6 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (42 St).

Round 16: *SC2Tog, SC in next 5 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (36 St).

Round 17: *SC2Tog, SC in next 4 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (30 St).

Round 18: *SC2Tog, SC in next 3 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (24 St).

Round 19: *SC2Tog, SC in next 2 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (18 St).

Attach the eyes between rounds 12 and 13.  Space them 7 stitches apart (see photo below for guide).  Stuff the head with the poly-fil and continue on to the next round where we start to work the body.

Round 20: SC in each stitch (18 St).

Round 21: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 2 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (24 St).

Switch to Color B

Round 22: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 3 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (30 St).

Round 23: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 4 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (36 St).

Round 24 – 26: SC in each stitch (36 St).

Round 27: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 8 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (40 St).

Round 28 – 29: SC in each stitch (40 St).

Round 30: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 9 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (44 St).

Switch back to Color A

Round 31 – 32: SC in each stitch (44 St).

Round 33: *SC2Tog, SC in next 20 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (42 St).

Round 34: *SC2Tog, SC in next 5 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (36 St).

Round 35: *SC2Tog, SC in next 4 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (30 St).

Round 36: *SC2Tog, SC in next 3 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (24 St).

Round 39: *SC2Tog.  Repeat from * to end of round (6 St).

Round 40: SC next stitch and 4th stitch together, leaving remaining stitches unworked (1 St). Fasten off and pull yarn into the body of the bear using crochet hook (to hide it).

Muzzle:

This is the protruding part of the bear’s face where his nose goes.

With Color A, make a magic circle or adjustable ring

Round 1: Make 6 SC in magic circle (6 St).

Round 2:  SC twice in each stitch (12 St).

Round 3: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next stitch.  Repeat from * until end of round (18 St).

Round 5: SC in each stitch (24 St).

Round 6: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 11 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (26 St).

Fasten off (leave a few inches of yarn for sewing).  Embroider on the nose as you would like it to look.

Once you have added the nose, you will need to attach the muzzle to the face. I attached it with the top starting at row 13 and the bottom at row 18.  You may want to pin it in place before you start to sew to make sure that it is spaced evenly.  When you have just a few stitches left, stuff the muzzle with the poly-fil and then sew the remaining stitches.  Secure with a knot and use the crochet hook to pull the loose end of yarn into the inside of the muzzle to hide it.

Ears:

With color A, make a magic circle or adjustable ring

Round 1: Make 6 SC in magic circle (6 St).

Round 2:  SC twice in each stitch (12 St).

Round 3: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next stitch.  Repeat from * until end of round (18 St).

Round 4-5: SC in each stitch (18 St).

Fasten off (leave a few inches of yarn for sewing).  Do not stuff the ears.  Attach the ears evenly spaced 4 rows down from the top of the head.

Arms:

With Color A, make a magic circle or adjustable ring

Round 1: Make 6 SC in magic circle (6 St).

Round 2:  SC twice in each stitch (12 St).

Round 3: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next stitch.  Repeat from * until end of round (18 St).

Round  4-5: SC in each stitch (18 St).

Round 6: *SC2Tog, SC in next  stitch.  Repeat from * to end of round (12 St).

Round  7-9: SC in each stitch (12 St).

Switch to Color B

Round  10-14: SC in each stitch (12 St).

Fasten off (leave a few inches of yarn for sewing).  Lightly stuff the arms (adding more stuffing to the balls of the hands) and attach to the sides of the body where the t-shirt starts (see photo below).

Legs:

With color A, make a magic circle or adjustable ring

Round 1: Make 6 SC in magic circle (6 St).

Round 2:  SC twice in each stitch (12 St).

Round 3: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next stitch.  Repeat from * until end of round (18 St).

Round 4: *SC twice in next stitch, SC in next 2 stitches.  Repeat from * until end of round (24 St).

Round  5-7: SC in each stitch (24 St).

Round 8: *SC2Tog, SC in next 2 stitches.  Repeat from * to end of round (18 St).

Rounds 9-15: SC in each stitch (18 St).

Crochet Cabled Throw Pillow Pattern

Free Patterns/ Home Decor

Cables are not just for knitters!  I’m in love with how beautiful chunky cables look when used in home decor.  I have a couple of 20″ X 20″ pillow forms lying around that I’ve been meaning to make covers for – for over year now!   So, I thought a pillow cover would be a great way to demonstrate how easy it is to create cables with crochet.  This pattern is a simple repeat of a 6 stitch cable and is perfect for anyone new to crocheting cables.   You will create a stunning throw pillow cover that will look incredible on any sofa or bed.  I know many of my followers are visual learners so I have also embedded a video on this page of me demonstrating how to crochet this cable stitch.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.

Finishing:

Line up the two squares (make sure the right side is facing outwards) and sew up the seams for three sides of the pillow cover using some extra yarn and a tapestry (yarn) needle.  Insert the pillow form and continue to sew up the last side.  Weave in the loose ends.

Free Heirloom Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

Crochet for Newborn Babies/ Crochet Patterns/ Free Patterns

Disclaimer: Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and I will earn a commission if you purchase through those links.  

I ordered the most gorgeous dk weight yarn, Cascade Cherub DK,  with the intention of making a light weight springtime pattern to share with all of you.  I was going to make a throw, but soon realized that the diagonal cluster stitch that I chose, in combination with this yarn, made a delicate lace fabric that would be perfect for an heirloom baby blanket.  You could of course choose to make a throw and increase your foundation chain to make a larger version too.

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page.  However, you can also purchase the PDF file for easy printing and reading (and to support me to be able to continue to post patterns on this blog).  If you’d like to purchase the PDF file, click the “Purchase PDF File” button below.
