Crochet Teddy Bear

25 Nov

This crochet teddy bear is a cute amigurumi called Wentworth. He has a removable jacket for added play value and is about 6 inches tall. You will need a modest amount of yarn, plus a button and some toy stuffing. This pattern costs £1.99 GBP and is available via Ravelry.

Wentworth Crochet Teddy Bear

Wentworth uses dc (US: sc) and htr (US: hdc) stitches and is suitable for an advanced beginner to crochet. In less than 2 hours, you could have a cute crochet teddy bear ready to go; he’d make an ideal last-minute gift for anyone. :)

His limbs are designed to allow him to be posed; he can sit unaided or you can prop him up, standing. If you don’t fancy making the little jacket, you could tie a ribbon around his neck or crochet a little scarf! However, the jacket is designed so that the dc (US: sc) edging is optional and the button loop is worked last, so you can omit the button if you wish.

Wentworth Jacket for Crochet Teddy Bear

Suggestions are provided for sewing his facial features. If you’re not a fan of French knots and satin stitches… you could use any sewing stitches you like, scraps of felt or small toy safety eyes. A particular pleasure of crafting your own toys is that you can customise them to your heart’s content. Who says teddy bears must be brown? You could make a purple Wentworth with an orange jacket, if that takes your fancy! His head and body are worked in rounds, so you could even make a horizontal striped Wentworth. :)
