An original crochet amigurumi teddy bear pattern from the Fuzzy Friends collection by June Gilbank.
Pattern makes either of the teddy bears shown, depending on the type of yarn used.
Yarn: an eyelash yarn. The specific yarns I used have probably been discontinued since I designed these patterns in 2007-8, but these patterns are very versatile and you can substitute many different yarns with great results:
Bonus Information Guide: All Fuzzy Friends patterns include an additional PDF instruction file called About Fuzzy Patterns. This 4-page reference guide is crammed full of information, tips, and examples for choosing and using both eyelash and fluffy/fuzzy yarns, how to substitute any regular yarn of your choice, and how to brush smooth pieces with a wire brush to give a fluffy result.
Hook: US H / 5mm
Size: Finished size will vary depending on yarn used; sample bears are 8″ (brown bear) and 10.5″ (pink bear) tall as seated in pictures.
Eye size: 10-12mm, depending on the thickness of the yarn you use. The sample brown bear used 10mm eyes and pink bear used 12mm eyes. If in doubt, go with 12mm.
Note: Take advantage of the savings when you buy any three Fuzzy Friends patterns of your choice as a custom set!
