LIL MR. TEDDY BEAR # 2
I am participating in the Ravellenics Games and if you’ve been following my blogs then you already know that… and you’ll also know that I am contributing to the donation drive by the Rotary Club in Brisbane for their Trauma Teddies. The Ravellenics Games (for all newbies to my blog) are games that have been
Read about the drive here.
The link above has a teddy bear knitted pattern, and I have worked a crochet pattern for that here http://shyamanivas.blogspot.com/2016/08/lil-mr-teddy-bear-1.html
Now, I want to make as many different ones as I could, so here’s what I found at http://www.crochet-patterns-free.com/2014/01/small-crochet-teddy-bear-free-crochet.html
Materials used : Today I’ve used our lovely Indian Vardhaman Millennium acrylic yarn, with a 4 mm crochet hook ; embroidery needle ; poly fill non-allergic stuffing
Size : 6.5” (head to toe) x 4” (arm to arm)
Skill level : Easy - Intermediate.
Stitches used :

Abbreviations used : (Using U.S terminology)
lp(s) : Loop(s) sc : Single crochet
st(s) : Stitch(es) st(s) : Stitch(es)
sp : Space sl-st : Slip stitch
hk : Hook yo : Yarn Over
This pattern is written using U.S terminology. This pattern is cute and well written. The only change I made was in using a slightly thicker yarn and a 4 mm crochet hook.
Also for the ears, the designer has said make a magic circle and then next row etc. I did not sl-st and join to make it a circle, and kept it semicircular – which (I think) just made it a little simpler to attach.

I love art and craft - and am grateful for this hobby that keeps me busy and out of 'mischief'.
We (as a family) are also staunch protectors of stray animals and will continue to do our bit to make this a safe world for them.
We strongly believe in R-R-R and several of my projects will show this.
