Little Bear Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Oct 19, 2019


Hi my fellow crocheters! I hope your week has started well...but if you needed an extra help to get in the right mood I'm here with a cute little gift for you: an adorable amigurumi Bear free crochet pattern!


I enjoy designing cute little friends for babies, and bears are definitely my favorite subject! I love imagining little kids engaging and playing with them and being comforted by their softness.


Today's free crochet project requires basic stitches knowledge and a bit of extra embroidery skills to create the cute bear's nose.


The finished bear is approximately 5.5" tall.
