(This pattern can be made in any yarn, including cottons. For similar thickness, I'd suggest Indian Laura knitting cotton yarn with a 3.5 or 4 mm crochet hook)
We will start with our first motif. I suggest that you use at least two colours – one for the little teddy bear face and one for going all around, so that the face shows through. We also need a little black yarn for the face features.
Neatly fasten off and glue down all loose ends of yarn.
