One of my earliest crochet memories is linked to crochet bears! This blog post is nostalgic as I have made most of these teddy bears using the cute crochet bear-free patterns below!
I have included 26 Free bear crochet patterns in this roundup and hope you find a really cute one you will love to make one day.
Materials needed to make crochet bears
Yarn – You can use any weight of yarn ranging from sport weight to Dk to Worsted and even chunky weight yarns for your crochet bears! Acrylic cotton or blend can also be used when considering the fiber.
Crochet Hook – The size will depend on the yarn’s weight. Generally, to secure and hide the poly-fill, go down at least two hook sizes to the yarn weight.
Poly-fill stuffing – This gives your crochet bear shape and form. Do not over-stuff your toys!
Facials – Eyes – Plastic eyes – You can use embroidery thread for safety. Especially when the bear is intended for kids younger than 4 years; otherwise, safety eyes and buttons can be substituted.
I had so much fun making this one! My son loves this bear; I made one about 7 years ago while pregnant. This bear is one of his favorites. The added heart can be replaced by carrots, cupcakes, and so on.
