Easy Valentine Teddy Bear - Free Crochet Pattern

 

Happy February!

Welcome back! Last week I shared my Bear with Valentine Scarf made from the All One Piece Amigurumi Basic Body

Going along with that same thread (pun intended - hah!), I thought I'd show you all a much easier pattern for a Valentine bear. 

So, let's do it!



Easy Valentine Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern

Materials:

  • Yarn - Worsted weight yarn. I used Red Heart Super Saver in Mint and Red

  • 3.5 mm crochet hook (E)

  • Fiberfill

  • 10 mm safety eyes

  • Safety nose


Skill Level:

  • beginner


Abbreviations:

  • mr - magic ring

  • sc - single crochet

  • inc - increase (2 sc in same stitch)

  • dec - decrease (sc 2 together)

  • st - stitch

  • ch - chain

  • sl st - slip stitch


Remember that you can use any color of yarn that you want, but if you change the weight of the yarn adjust your hook size to match. Larger weight yarn = larger hook size and vice versa.

As always, we are working in continuous rounds.

Now, we will begin the other bump on top of the heart starting with sl st into the first skipped stitch of round 12 as shown:

Stuff firmly as you go.

Rnd 17: sc 7, dec x 3, sc 7 - crochet into the front loops of the ch. 2 from round 12 (16)

Rnd 20: dec x 6 (6)

Finish stuffing. Fasten off and use the tail to close the hole same as before. 


You may recognize the heart from the Amigurumi Kawaii Heart (my very first post!). The only thing we did differently was - we did not add a face. You definitely could if you wanted. It would be so cute!


Finishing

With yarn needle and red yarn, attach the heart to all four paws.


Congratulations! You have a cuddly bear!
