New Teddy Bear PDF Pattern

 

New Teddy Bear PDF Patter: Lucas the Teddy

I have made one Amigurumi Teddy Bear Pattern, I wanted to make another as well, with legs and hands that could mouve easily.
All started quite long time ago with teddy´s legs, they came out really big and a bit fat. I liked them, then they waited couple of month to have the rest of the body.


The pattern is available in my Etsy Shop:TinyAmigurumi. I have great news as well about my pattern shop. I´m using a new feature that gives an instant download to buyer just after payment. Now you don´t have to wait my e- mail, Etsy will send you an e-mail with the link to pattern download. It helps to avoid the waiting proccess, because there are different time zones... It´s really convienent for buyer. 

Making the pattern

As to legs and hands I didn´t use joints, because I wanted to make a version where no joints are needed.
Making these hands were also interesting, because I wanted hands with lovely curves - at the end I was successful. According to body, it was something really odd, because I have to stick with the saying that the first feeling is right. I made one version and wanted to try several ones, still stayed with the first version. 
I used 6 mm safety eyes, put them really close to each other and near to nose - gives a really cute look. The teddy bear is just perfect size for children, for illustrating you can see photos.
I used Austermann Bambou Soft yarn: 65% merino, 35% bamboo and 2mm crochet hook. 
Briefly, I´m really happy about the pattern. Just have to crochet the pieces separately and then join them together. And as one little girl said me, teddy has to have a tail too. So I made one. Usually I don´t make tails :) But it fits perfectly.
Here you can only change colors and have different result.
A special thanks goes to Katherine for testing my pattern. The result is really sweet!

Hope you enjoy! Thank You for visiting and welcome back!




Getting to know each other!
My son was really happy to get this bear. We have quite many amigurumi toys at home and I think this is the best way to have toys - to make them by yourself and not to buy plastic ones :) - all handmade toys are the best toys, in my opinion.

  8. He is lovely, I can't wait to make him. Can I ask, if you wanted to add joints would it work and do you know what size I might need? Thank you.

    1. Hi thank you! Using joints, can´t tell for sure, maybe 1 - 1,5 cm would be ok. You could try. This pattern is made without using joints, in near future would like to make one teddy bear design with joints as well.

  11. Hi, I just bought your pattern which I plan to make for my soon to be born grandson.
    The pattern doesn't state how many ball of wool required? I presume One ball?
