Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern

Today I’ve got a crochet teddy bear appliqué pattern for you. There’s a pattern and video tutorial that will guide you through crocheting it. This is what the teddy bear will look like.

If you would like to follow along with the video tutorial it’s available at Crochet Teddy Bear Video Tutorial.

I also have this pattern available for download on my Ravelry store for $1 which you can get by clicking buy now.

This pattern will use US terminology. If you would like to get the UK version go to Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern (UK Version).

I’ve also got a small amaguri teddy bear pattern available as well.
