Baby Bear

Posted by 2ton Inspired on March 6, 2008

Little Bear

A little quick and dirty de-stashing project. I think he’s alright. Not “awww so cute,” but kinda. Maybe it’s a multiplier thing but the pictures make them look so cute! (The photo has 4-5 of the bears strewn about) I think it’s the perfect size for little baby hands though.

I might have made his nose a bit big and am wondering if I should scrap the muzzle part and make the nose right on the face. The turtles (can  you see the two turtle heads sticking up put of the water?) sure thought he was strange though! They must have stared at him for a good 2-3 minutes.

This pattern was missing a lot of the instructions for the arms, legs and ears. They all ended on row 3! I inspected the photo in the book and counted 9 rows on the arms so I made both arms and legs 9 rows. The ears I made to 4 rows.

Pattern: Little Teddy Bear from Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts! Amigurumi

Yarn: Sugar’n Cream stripes

  1. What a cute little amigurumi bear! That sugar and cream yarn is perfect. I don’t think the muzzle is too big. Don’t you hate it when the pattern is obviously incomplete?
    Oh, and I love your photography! The turtles and the water reflection are all very peaceful. That’s so funny that the turtles were interested in the crochet bear!

    Oh, I just made my first little crochet Amigurumi component, and yes, this same bear! It was weird indeed that it said only three rows for the arms/legs, BIZAARE, glad it wasn’t only me that thought this was odd…….
