Materials:
  •  G 6/ 4.00mm crochet hook
  • Medium Worsted weight (#4) yarn

I used :

Red Heart in Buff for the body, head, arms, and ears. 

Craftsmart in Off White for the mouth.

Black/Brown Embroidery Floss – for Eyes, Nose, and Mouth

  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch markers (highly recommend this extra piece of yarn works great) X2
  • Poly-fil
  • (Optional) Pins to help with ears and arms placements.
  • (Optional) Blush or paint for the cheeks. Add a little at a time.
Abbreviations:

Stitches:

CHchain

ST – stitch (stitch space)

Sl Stslip stitch

SC – single crochet

DC – double crochet

FLO – front loop only

SC INC – single crochet increase (2 sc in the same st)

SC DEC – single crochet decrease

INV DEC – invisible SC decrease ( decrease using FLO)

Other:

F.O: fasten off

MC – magic circle / magic ring

Read Before beginning:
  • STITCH MARKER – You will be working in rounds so keep a stitch marker close to use when working up the doll. Unless otherwise stated to CH and turn. They will mark the 1st st of each round.
  • TENSION – Make sure you use a tight enough tension to help close any “holes” a loose tension may cause. I crochet yarning under then Over to create a tighter stitch. Go down a hook size if needed. ( my tension is naturally tight)
  • ASSEMBLY – The amigurumi is worked up by first making two legs, joining them together, and working up the body and the head in one piece. Arms, ears, mouth, and rose are separate.
  • BLUSH (OPTIONAL) This is optional but you could also use blush to add some sweetness to the cheeks. I use cosmetic grade blush using a dense small brush and little at a time. I have heard paint, fabric crayons, and wax doll crayons work as well. I used Blush.
  • PATTERN (EX. *SC in 8, INV DEC in the next. Repeat from * to the end. (36) ) You will end that round with the second step of what that round instructs. This will vary.

I then created a vertical line down the center of the nose over one round for the mouth and fastened it off in the back. Securing with a knot.

Rose – 

This rose is worked in just one row. It will curl up as you get closer to the final stitch.

CH 18

SC in the 2nd chain from hook.

3 DC in the next CH.

Slip Stitch in the next CH.

3 DC in the next CH.

Keep alternating the Slip Stitches and 3 DC’s then SC in the last st.

Leave a long tail to sew the flower and sew it on the bear’s head or where you prefer.

Starting with the last SC you made, start to roll the rose up and sew in the back through the chains where the 3DC’s were made. Until it no longer opens up or spreads. You want it set in place before sewing it on the bear.
