    Free Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern

    This week, I have a free crochet teddy bear pattern to share with you to make my little friend named Bearrison Bear. Bearrison is a quick and easy crochet teddy bear made with faux fur yarn. The faux fur yarn elevates this simple project to give it a store-bought look and it’s just way too cute.

    After I released my patterns for my crochet bear ornament and my teddy bear lovey, I got a lot of requests for a classic teddy bear so I wasted no time getting work on a free crochet teddy bear pattern for you all. While I was working on this pattern, my son came over and asked me if I was making a “Bearrison” which is the name he gave to his favourite teddy bear. Bearrison is an important part of our lives and I thought it would be fun to name this little guy Bearrison too. Once I told my son that yes, this would be a Bearrison too, there was no discussion as to where Bearrison would be ending up after I took photos of him. My son loves his new Bearrison and has even taken it to school for show and tell.

    This free crochet teddy bear pattern is worked with simple crochet stitches and shaping. I used We Crochet’s Fable Fur for this design and it’s my absolute favourite faux fur yarn. The names of the colours of Fable Fur yarns are all named in different languages for the word “bear” so I kind of enjoy that this teddy bear is made in the colourway bear, when translated to english anyways.

    Tips for Working with Faux Fur Yarns

    If this is your first time making faux fur amigurumi, don’t be intimidated. Faux fur yarn is incredibly forgiving so even if you think you’ve made a mistake, the odds are, it’ll be hidden by the fur. I recommend that first time faux fur yarn users check out my tips & tricks for working with faux fur yarns video below. I’ve included my tops tips & tricks for working with faux fur yarns, some of which, are amigurumi pattern specific. If you’d prefer the written version of the video, you can check that out HERE.

    Notes:

    • Gauge is not vital to project as long as the same tension is maintained throughout the project and there are no holes that stuffing can be seen through in the bear parts.  Yarn amounts are based on the gauge given so not matching gauge may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project. 
    • A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches with the fur, you can adjust your hook until you can more easily feel your stitches to know where to place your stitches.  This may however affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed. 
    • Parts are crocheted in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
    • All pieces made in the Fable Fur are worked and sewn onto the project with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur.

    This week we are using this free amigurumi doll clothes pattern to dress our friend Pascal. We’ll be making a t-shirt and a pair of pants for our friend so that he is dressed and ready to play. We’ll be using two different colours of Brava Worsted Weight for this week. I’ve used the colours Avocado for his t-shirt and Solstice Heather for his pants. Feel free to use whatever colours you’d prefer to customize your doll clothes.

    Finished size:

    • Doll is approximately 9.5” tall

    Gauge:

    • Doll: 5 sts across x 7 rows = 1” square
    • Clothing: 5 sts across x 7 rows = 1” square


    NOTES:

    • This pattern is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
    • For a cleaner SCDEC, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of each stitch rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease. Find my tutorial on how to do this HERE.
    • In Round 1 of the Body, the CH 1 is counted as a ST and should be worked into in Round 2 of the body.
    • Pants are created to fit snuggly on the body without the need of a button.  Take care when pulling over the feet so as not to stretch out the feet and legs. 


    Special Techniques:

    • Invisible Join: FO leaving a long tail. Thread the tail onto a tapestry needle.  Place the tapestry needle through the top of the 2nd ST from front to back and pull through.  Place tip of needle into top of the last ST of the round, under the back loop of the stitch, and pull through to the back of the work.  Weave in the end.


    Shirt

    Using Brava in Avocado and 3.5mm hook, Ch 23

    Rows 10 – 14: CH 1 and turn. SC across. Join last ST to first ST with a SL ST. (40)

    FO and weave in ends.  The CH 6’s that created a loop in Row 1 will act as a button hole/fastener to close the back of the shirt.  Using sewing needle and thread, sew button onto the back of the shirt, on the side opposite to the loop created in Row 1.

    At the beginning of this week, our Pal Pascal is looking a bit like an alien. For Part Two of our amigurumi boy doll free pattern crochet along, we’ll be adding arms, hair and a nose to our pal Pascal to give him a bit more character and a more earthly appearance. Each arm is made separately and sewn onto the body, just below the neck. The nose is embroidered on simply and then the hair is crocheted as a hair cap and then sewn onto the head of our doll.

    It’s been so much fun seeing everyone’s progress so far! Don’t forget that you can join in the fun with us over in The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community on Facebook and see everyone’s progress. I’m active in the group and will be available to answer any questions posed in the group as well.

    Crochet Boy Doll Free Pattern Crochet Along – Week 1

    Amigurumi doll made with this Crochet Boy Doll Free Pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I am SO excited to be sharing this with you all today! It’s the start of my latest free crochet along! This is one of my absolute favourite events to host because it’s just so fun doing this with you and seeing all your beautiful creations. For our new crochet along, I’ve created a crochet boy doll free pattern for us, which I’ve named My Pal Pascal. This pattern was created based on requests from participants in my last crochet along: My Dolly Molly. After finish Molly there were a lot of requests for a crochet boy doll free pattern so, I got to work on it and My Pal Pascal was born.

    I hope you will join along with us for the crochet along. If you do, you can join The Loopy Lamb Crochet Community Group on Facebook where we’ll be chatting and sharing our progress.

    The crochet boy doll free pattern for My Pal Pascal has been split into three parts to make creating him a little more manageable and so you can crochet along with us. Please reference the posts below for each part of the CAL and instructions.

    Before we get more into the pattern, let’s talk about My Pal Pascal. Like my My Dolly Molly doll, is a crochet doll with clothes that are removeable. For the crochet along, Pascal’s pants and shirt are made as separate pieces and can be removed and put back on the doll.

    My Pal Pascal was designed in a way that minimizes sewing. Pascal’s legs, body and head are all crocheted in a single piece. The arms and hair are made separately and sewn on. His clothing is crocheted in a separate piece and as mentioned above, are removeable. There is some sewing for the shirt in order to fasten the button but that was unavoidable in order to make the shirt removeable.

    Faux Fur Crochet Cowl Free Pattern

    Smiling woman wearing a faux fur crochet cowl made with this free crochet pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    It is winter here in Canada and it is C-O-L-D! Like 30 below zero cold. I am always on the look out for ways to keep myself warmer when I eventually bundle up to head outdoors . Enter the Not-So-Guilty Pleasure Cowl. I decided to design a faux fur crochet cowl free pattern that was accessible for beginners but would also help keep me from freezing during our winters. This cowl is probably the warmest I’ve ever worn and I LOVE IT.

    Pin this for Later Save

    This is my first wearable design using faux fur yarns. Y’all know I love faux fur for amigurumi patterns so I don’t know why it took me so long to start using it for accessories. You can’t even tell it’s crocheted! I’ve included a tip in this pattern that’ll fluff the fur in your project right up and any sort of lines from crocheting in rows disappears.

    This faux fur crochet cowl free pattern is accessible for absolute beginners and is easily adjusted to be any size you want. Did I mention that we’re going to be using big 8.0mm crochet hooks to crochet this baby up in a flash? Trust me, you’re probably going to be making several of these. If you’re a maker that sells, this is one of those patterns that you can whip up in a jiff, has a relatively low cost and would fetch a decent price. Are you ready to get started making your own Not-So-Guilty Pleasure Cowl? Me too! Let’s get started.

    If this is your first time crocheting with faux fur yarns, check out my tips and tricks video for working with faux fur yarns here:

    Other Free Crochet Patterns Using Faux Fur Yarns:

    If you haven’t seen my other faux fur yarn crochet patterns that I’ve published so far, check them out here:

    hands holding three different balls of fable fur yarn

    This faux fur cowl crochet pattern uses Fable Fur yarn from We Crochet. I absolutely love using this product! It is so soft and worked up into this cowl, it’s so warm and soft against the skin, I may need to make myself a couple of these in different colours. Working back and forth in rows with the fur can make the lines of the row a little bit more visible than when working in rounds. To make your cowl look more like a piece of fur and remove those lines, use a wire brush and gently brush the right side of your work. It totally smoothes it out and no one will be able to tell it’s crocheted.

    You can purchase an inexpensive ad-free PDF version of this faux fur crochet cowl pattern HERE on Ravelry and HERE on Etsy.


    NOTES:

    • Gauge is not vital to the project as long as the same tension is maintained throughout the project and there are no gaping holes that can be seen through however, it may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project. 
    • An 8.0mm crochet hook is recommended for the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook size until you can more easily feel your stitches to know where to place your stitches.  This may, however, affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed.

    Fluffing Up Your Cowl:

    To really fluff up your cowl, use a wire brush to gently brush the fur on the side of the cowl that will face outwards.  This will conceal any marks you have showing where the rows were worked and make your project look more realistic.

    Adjusting the Size of Your Cowl:

    Adjusting the width: To adjust the width of your cowl to make it taller, add more chains to your starting chain.  To make it shorter, omit chains from the starting chain.

    Adjusting the height: To adjust the height of your cowl to make it longer, add more rows until it reaches the desired length.  To make it shorter and sit closer to the neck, work less rows than the project calls for until the project is the desired length.

    Crochet Bunny Lovey Free Pattern

    crochet bunny lovey made with a free crochet pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I’m back this week with the third and final installment of My Cuddle Friends crochet lovey pattern series. This week I have a crochet bunny lovey free pattern to share with you call called My Cuddle Bunny Lovey. This lovey pattern features a cute and cuddley bunny head and arms and a beautiful lovey blanket attached to it. I’ve used three different, coordinating colours for my blanket but it’s easily customized to suit your personal needs and tastes.

    Missed the other two My Cuddle friends crochet lovey patterns? Check them out here:

    three different crochet loveys in a flat lay

    This crochet bunny lovey free pattern makes the perfect crochet baby shower gift! Crochet loveys are always a big hit at baby showers and they always get great reactions from everyone. It always makes us feel so wonderful when you get such a nice reaction to gift you give. Even better when it’s something you made yourself and put all that love and care into.

    If you enjoy this crochet bunny lovey free pattern but you’re looking for a full-sized crochet bunny pattern instead, check out my amigurumi bunny pattern called Buttons the Bunny. He also makes a fantastic shower gift (a baby shower gift was actually the reason I created that pattern) and he even comes with a cute little sweater.

    For this project, we’ll be doing something called eye indentation. This is used to give some shape to the bunny’s face. Don’t let that intimidate you though. It’s as easy as tying a piece of yarn to each of the eye, pulling those pieces of yarn and tying a knot. I have step-by-step instructions and a diagram to help you out. If you’d like to skip this step, that’s ok, your bunny will still look great, it just won’t have the exact same shape.

    • Blanket: 16 sts x 8 rows = 4”

    You can purchase an inexpensive ad-free PDF version of this crochet bunny lovey pattern HERE on Ravelry and HERE on Etsy.

    NOTES:

    • All parts of the bunny are worked in continuous rounds.  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
    • For a cleaner SCDEC, do your SCDEC under the front loops only of the stitch rather than under both loops.  This is often referred to as an invisible decrease -> find the tutorial here.
    • The CH 2 spaces in the corners of the blanket are not included in the stitch count for each row.

    Crochet Bunny Lovey Pattern – My Cuddle Bunny Crochet Lovey

    Head:

    Row 1: Using Brindle and a 3.5mm hook, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC (6)
    Row 2: (SCINC) X 6 (12)
    Row 3: (SC 1, SCINC) X 6 (18)
    Row 4: SC 1, SCINC, (SC 2, SCINC) X 5, SC 1 (24)
    Row 5: (SC 3, SCINC) X 6 (30)
    Rows 6 – 7: SC around (30)
    Row 8: SC 2, SCINC (SC 4, SCINC) X5, SC 2 (36)
    Row 9: SC around (36)
    Row 10: (SC 5, SCINC) X 6 (42)
    Row 11: SC 3, SCINC (SC 6, SCINC) X 5, SC 3 (48) – **Place safety eyes in stitches 27 and 44 of Row 11

    To define the face, we will be using a technique called eye indentation. After inserting the safety eyes (don’t attach the washers yet), use your two long strands of yarn in different colours to tie knots around the post of each safety eye. Place the washers on the safety eyes. The long ends of your yarn should point downwards towards the back of the head and through the opening. Just before closing the head, we’ll pull these strings so that that the eyes will be pulled back, creating an indent in the face.  As you add stuffing to the head, make sure these pieces don’t get pushed in with the stuffing.


    Rows 12 – 16:
    SC around (48)
    Row 17: (SC 7, SCINC) X 6 (54) – Start stuffing, adding a bit more each row.
    Row 18: SC around (54)
    Row 19: (SC 7, SCDEC) X 6 (48)
    Row 20: SC around (48)
    Row 21: SC 3, SCDEC (SC 6, SCDEC) X 5, SC 3 (42)
    Row 22: (SC 5, SCDEC) X 6 (36)
    Row 23: SC 2, SCDEC (SC 4, SCDEC) X5, SC 2 (30)

    Now we’re going to indent the face.  Using two differently coloured strands helps make this step a little easier so you know which yarn is tied to which eye.  Take the yarn attached to the right eye post and cross it over top of the yarn attached to the left yarn post (creating an x with the yarn).  Pull the yarn taught gently until you get the indentation in the face that you like.  You’ll want to make sure you have the amount of stuffing you want in the face when you do this step because if you have too much, you can pull your stitches or if you have too little, you can have too much of an indent.  Once you’re satisfied, knot the two strands of yarn together.  It is helpful if you have someone to hold the cross in the yarn while you make the knot so you don’t lose tension.  Make sure the knot is secure.  Tuck your ends into the head with the rest of the stuffing.

    Row 24: (SC 3, SCDEC) X 6 (24) – Continue to add stuffing with each row.
    Row 25: SC 1, SCDEC, (SC 2, SCDEC) X 5, SC 1 (18)
    Row 26: (SC 1, SCDEC) x 6 (12)
    Row 27: (SCDEC) x 6 (6)
    FO.  Weave the tail through the FLO to close the opening.  Weave in ends.

    Embroidering the Nose

    Using the pink embroidery thread and a tapestry needle, embroider the nose onto the face starting in the stitch directly below the MC.  Put your needle through 1 stitch above and to the either side of the MC to create a V shape.  Continue embroidering through these three stitches until you are satisfied with your nose.  FO and hide your ends inside the head.

    Ears (Make 2)

    Row 1: Using Brindle and a 3.5mm hook, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC (6)
    Row 2: (SC 2, SCINC) x 2 (8)
    Row 3: SC around (8)
    Row 4: (SCINC, SC 3) x 2 (10)
    Row 5: SC around (10)
    Row 6: (SCINC, SC 1) x 5 (15)
    Row 7: SC around (15)
    Row 8: (SC 2, SCINC) x 5 (20)
    Rows 9 – 16: SC around (20)
    Row 17: (SC 2, SCDEC) x 5 (15)
    Row 18: SC around (15)
    Row 19: (SC 1, SCDEC) x 5 (10)
    Row 20: SC around (10)

    FO leaving an extra-long tail to sew onto head. Do Not Stuff. When sewing the ears on, pull the yarn taught to help the ears stand upright.  After I complete one pass through, I go back and stitch them again to give them a firm foundation.

    Arms (Make 2)

    Row 1: Using Brindle and a 3.5mm hook, make a MC and SC 6 into the MC (6)
    Row 2: (SCINC) x 6 (12)
    Row 3: (SC 2, SCINC) x 4 (16)
    Rows 4 – 17: SC around (16) – start stuffing, adding more stuffing with each added round.
    Row 18: (SC 2, SCDEC) x 4 (12)

    Crochet Owl Lovey Free Pattern

    Crochet lovey made with this crochet owl lovey free pattern in a flat lay
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    Last week, I released the first of a series of free crochet lovey blanket patterns, the My Cuddle Bear Lovey. This series of lovey toys was created for you! I’m always wanting to give you guys what you’re asking for so when many of you were requesting patterns for free crochet lovey blanket patterns, I got straight to work three of them. This weeks’ pattern is my crochet owl lovey free pattern which I’ve named My Baby Cuddle Owl Lovey. If this is your first time working with faux fur yarns, don’t worry. I’ve included some resources for you below to help you find as much succses with working with this yarn as possible.

    This crochet owl lovey free pattern was designed to be super cute, fit a woodland nursery theme, be easily customized and be quick enough to whip up in case you need a last minute baby shower gift. For me, that last one is a biggie. I always think I have lots of time to whip up something great for a baby shower and then next thing I know, the shower is one a day or two away. Heck, you could whip this up the night before, or dare I say, the morning of a baby shower. If you’ve got a couple of days before the shower, pair it with my go-to baby shower blanket pattern, The Timeless Teal Chevron Blanket Pattern and you’ll be set to go with a gorgeous gift that’ll have everyone ooh-ing and aahing at your crochet prowess and they’ll never know you did them in a pinch.

    I LOVE using faux fur yarns to create amigurumi for many reasons, one of which is that you can create beautiful amigurumi projects that don’t even look crocheted. I can’t tell you how many times people have been surprised when I show them a toy I’ve made with faux fur yarn and I tell them it’s crocheted. It’s pretty awesome. The other great thing about working with faux fur yarn is that it’s incredibly forgiving. So if you’re not great at sewing on limbs and you think that seam always looks “ugly” that’s not a concern with faux fur yarn. The fur hides it all my friend! Ready to get those hooks into some faux fur? Check out my tips and tricks for using faux fur yarns in the video below (or find the write up HERE) so you can hit the ground running. If you’re looking to give faux fur yarns a try, I recommend using Fable Fur from WeCrochet (found HERE). It’s my favourite faux fur yarn as it has a thick strap on the back of the yarn which helps you feel the stitches, even if you can’t see them.

    Finished Size:
     

    • Owl: Approximately 3.5” tall
    • Blanket Size: 12” x 12”

    Gauge: 

    • Owl: 4 sts x 5.5 rows = 2”
    • Granny Square Blanket: 16 sts x 8 rows = 4”


    Notes:

    • Gauge is not vital to project as long as the same tension is maintained throughout the project and there are no holes that stuffing can be seen through in the bear parts.  Yarn amounts are based on the gauge given so not matching gauge may affect the amount of yarn needed for the project. 
    • A 5.5mm crochet hook is recommended for the project but if you find you are unable to feel your stitches, you can adjust your hook until you can more easily feel your stitches to more easily know where to place your stitches.  This may however affect your gauge and therefore, the amount of yarn needed. 
    • The Owl body is worked in continuous rounds (unless stated otherwise).  Do not join at the end of the row, unless indicated.  A stitch marker is used to keep track of the beginning of the round.
    • All pieces made in the Fable Fur are worked and sewn onto the project with the wrong side facing out to show the better-looking side of the fur. 
    • The CH 3 at the beginning of each round in the granny square blanket counts as a DC.
    • The CH 2 spaces in the corners of the blanket are not included in the stitch count for each row.

    Teddy Bear Lovey Free Crochet Pattern

    Teddy Bear Lovey made with this free crochet pattern in a flat lay with crochet accessories
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I’ve been getting requests from many of you for some lovey toy patterns and I’m happy to say that I have a teddy bear lovey free crochet pattern to share with you all today. My Cuddle Bear Lovey comes with two different blanket types that you can choose from for your toy: a striped blanket made with worsted weight yarn and another blanket made entirely with faux fur yarn. The faux fur yarn version is so soft and lushious that I kind of want one for me. If this is your first time working with faux fur yarns, I’ll include some resources here as well to help you be successful when working with faux fur yarns.

    I have two new free crochet lovey patterns available now to complete the My Cuddle Friend series:

    Using faux fur yarns to make amigurumi can be intimidating for some people. I get it. I used to be really nervous about trying it but once I actually gave it a try I fell head over heels for working with it. If this is your first time using faux fur yarns, this teddy bear lovey free crochet pattern is a great pattern to finally give it a try. The bear is small and quick to make so it’s not a huge committment in terms of time or resources. Faux fur yarn is incredibly forgiving so if you don’t have the tidiest seaming when putting your teddy bear lovey, no one can tell. The fur hides it all and still looks great! Check out my tips and tricks for using faux fur yarns in the video below (or find the write up HERE) so you can hit the ground running. If you’re looking to give faux fur yarns a try, I recommend using Fable Fur from WeCrochet (found HERE). It’s my favourite faux fur yarn as it has a thick strap on the back of the yarn which helps you feel the stitches, even if you can’t see them.

    One Skein Crochet Hat Pattern – Into the Fade

    Two hats in a flat lay that were made with this free one skein crochet hat pattern
    This post may contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

    I love a good one skein crochet hat pattern. They’re generally quick, easy and only one skein of yarn is needed which means I can sometimes use up that stray ball of yarn just hanging out in my stash that I’m not sure what to do with. When I figured out that I could get a hat in two different sizes from a single skein of Chroma Twist Worsted, I had to go for it. This week I’m sharing a new one skein crochet hat pattern which I’ve named Into the Fade. It’s a quick and simple project to work up and each size uses a single skein of We Crochet’s Chroma Twist Worsted Weight yarn. It’s available in two different sizes: Adult Medium and Adult Large. This is a gender neutral hat, meaning that it can be worn by anyone. Add a pom-pom or not, whatever your preference is.

    I’ve named this project Into the Fade because of the beautiful way that the Chroma Twist Worsted yarn fades from one colour to the next throughout the pattern. It gives it a gorgeous ombre effect that’s to die for. I didn’t cut my yarn or make deliberate colour changes like I do in my Timeless Teal Chevron Blanket or my Tranquil Tides Anniversary Cake Blanket patterns. I just let the colour changes happen. They were so subtle I didn’t feel the need to make those extra cuts to get a prefect finish. I did a full review of We Crochet’s Chroma Twist Worsted yarn not long ago. Check out the full review of it HERE.

    I used two different colourways for my samples: Narwal (the teal) and Wednesday (the black/grey combo). Both colourways had great colour changes and although teals are my favourite colours, Wednesday absolutely stole my heart on this one. Wednesday had the most subtle colour changes of the two colourways and I am beyond pleased with how it worked up. That fade from black to light grey is ombre perfection. I would love to get this colour way in a giant-sized ball with super long colour changes and make a duster sweater. I think that would be incredible.
