Cuddly Bear Crochet Pattern - PDF

Ever since I started crocheting and designing my own patterns I have always wanted to design a bear. The kind that was big, cuddly, and ready to go on adventures! My two little ones are always taking their bears on adventures, sleeping with them, and sometimes I think they play with them more than they play with any other toys.

After many trials and errors I finally got the Cuddly Bear just the way I wanted him! I think I drove my husband nuts asking him a million questions. "How does this look?" "More to the left?" "Too much here?" At least he was patient and honest with me! :-)

I wanted a bear that was 100% perfect for a baby or child of any age. This bear has chubby cheeks, a sweet tail, colorful paws, and crocheted eyes that twinkle! He is about 20 inches tall from the tip of his ear to the heel of his foot. So, he is ready for adventures, perfect to cuddle, and makes a wonderful nursery decoration too!

I can't wait to see all of your Cuddly Bears and all the wonderful color combinations that you come up with!
