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 :
Magic circle : To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

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.

If you liked this project and want more of the same, do keep a look-out for my blog as I plan on making more lil teddy bears.
