G/4.25mm crochet hook

E/3.50mm crochet hook

Red, Black, White, Gray yarn – Red Heart Super Saver (#4 Worsted Weight)

Polyester fiberfill

Stitch marker

Scissors

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked “in the round” without joining at the end of each round. ALL stitches are worked in both loops unless otherwise specified.
  • Place your stitch marker at the beginning of each round to make it easier to keep track of your Round number.

Rnd 22 & 23: Sc in each st around (4) Slst in first st of last rnd and finish off, leaving a tail to weave the hole closed.

Rnd 24 (Second finger): Join yarn with a slst in the first free st beside the first finger. Sc in that same st and in the next st, skip 8sts, sc in next 2sts. (4) Refer to photo B below.

Next, you are going to weave each finger end closed and weave your tail down through the finger to hide it. If you end up with a “gap” between your fingers, you can bring your tail out through the gap after feeding it through the finger and sew the hole together. Refer to Photo C below.

      

Pin the finished arm to the “side” of the shoulder (Refer to photos below) and with a length of red yarn and a needle, sew the arm on, using the free loops on the arm. Next, stuff your shoulders and pin them to the body. I pinned them about 2 rounds below where the neck is sewn to the body. Once you have them placed where you want them, using your black yarn from the shoulder, sew ¾ to the body, stuff a little more if necessary and finish sewing to the body. Weave in any ends.

I hope you enjoy making your own bear! If you have any questions, concerns or find any errors, you can email me at lovetobeinstitches@gmail.co

**Having trouble printing the pattern? Email me and I’ll be happy to send you the PDF**

Absolutely NO part of this pattern may be reproduced, transmitted or redistributed in any way. Only print a copy of this pattern for your own personal use! Finished items can be sold. Please share your finished designs with me on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/lovetobeinstitches or you can also find me on Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/designers/love-to-be-in-stitches I would love to see them!

This pattern uses American crochet terms. Gauge is not really important with this amigurumi. My finished bear measures approximately 11 inches tall in the sitting position, when using size G/4.25mm crochet hook.

Notes:

  • It is VERY important that you make your arms, legs and snout before making your head and body, as you will be adding these on while you go.
  • This pattern is worked “in the round” without joining at the end of each round unless otherwise specified.
  • ALL stitches are worked in both loops unless otherwise specified.
  • Place your stitch marker at the beginning of each round to make it easier to keep track of your Round number.
  • If you prefer to not use safety eyes, you can embroider eyes on after you’re finished.

Materials Needed

  • 2 different colors of #4 worsted weight yarn – Color A and Color B (I used Red Heart Super Saver)
  • G/4.25mm hook
  • 2 X 21mm safety eyes (24mm will work well too)
  • Stitch marker
  • Polyester fiber-fill
  • Sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Black felt or small amount of black yarn or embroidery floss (for nose)

Stitches Used

  • Ch – Chain
  • Slst – Slip Stitch
  • Sc – Single Crochet
  • Hdc – Half Double Crochet
  • Dc – Double Crochet
  • BLO – Back Loop Only
  • Rnd – Round
  • Adj Ring – Adjustable Ring (If you are not comfortable with the Adjustable Ring, you can chain 2 and make the amount of stitches in the second chain from hook)
  • Sc2tog – Single Crochet 2 Together (invisible decrease – if you’re unfamiliar with this technique, refer to this link: http://www.crochetspot.com/how-to-crochet-single-crochet-invisible-decrease/ ) – THIS IS NOT MY LINK!

Pinch the opening of the ear together and whip stitch closed, then sew to the side of the head. The top of the ear should be about 8 rounds down from the center of the top of the head. This is very important if you’re planning on making the hat.

Finishing notes:  If you’re going to use felt for the nose, cut a triangle and sew to the front of the snout, then take a piece of black yarn or embroidery thread and embroider a line for the mouth.

You can also choose to thread your needle with black yarn or embroidery thread and embroider the nose on the snout.

Grinch Wreath

Grinch Wreath

Just in time for Christmas! I am posting my Grinch wreath pattern for you to enjoy. If you find any errors or have any questions, please let me know 🙂

If you use Ravelry, please be sure to add your finished item and you can even share them with me on Facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/lovetobeinstitches )

Materials needed:

  • Lime green yarn (I used RHSS worsted weight)
  • Sage green yarn (I used RHSS worsted weight)
  • Red yarn (I used RHSS worsted weight)
  • G/4.25mm crochet hook
  • Polyester stuffing
  • 12″ or 14″ foam floral ring
  • Yellow and black felt
  • Black embroidery floss
  • Sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue and glue gun (or needle and thread for sewing the eyes on)
  • Embellishments (eg: bells, ribbon, bows, etc) – The options are ENDLESS!!

Stitches used:

  • Adj Ring – Adjustable Ring (If you are not comfortable with the Adjustable Ring, you can chain 2 and make the amount of stitches in the second chain from hook)
  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – Single crochet
  • Hdc – Half double crochet
  • Slst – Slip stitch
  • Sc2tog – Single crochet 2 together (if you’re unfamiliar with this technique, there are LOTS of tutorials online)

NOTES for Foam Ring Cover

**Make sure you have your foam ring close, because you will want to make sure you are not making your strip too tight OR too loose. Also, to avoid weaving in a whole bunch of ends, I carried my color changes up the side. They will be hidden when you sew the sides together anyway 😉

Foam Ring Cover

Starting with red:

Row 1: Ch 21, hdc in second st from hook and in each st across, ch 1, turn (20)

Row 2: Hdc in each st across, change to green on the last st, ch 1, turn (20)

Once you have the amount of rows needed, finish off and weave in any ends. Sew the 2 long sides together around the ring and weave in end.

ufsk1047

**Repeat rows 1 and 2, changing colors after every second row until you have enough rows to go around your whole ring. MAKE SURE you end off with the opposite color you started with! Don’t make too many rows, otherwise your work will bunch up when you sew it on. I require 84 rows total for a 12 inch ring and 96 rows total for a 14 inch ring. Your row total may vary depending on your tension.

NOTES for Grinch Head

**Work in continuous rounds. DO NOT join!

Grinch Head

Using Lime Green:

Rnd 1: 6 sc in an adj ring (or ch 2, and place 6sc in second st from hook). Pull ring closed (6)

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)

Rnd 3: *Sc in the next 1 st, 2 sc in the next* repeat from *to* around (18)

Rnd 4: *Sc in the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the next* repeat from *to* around (24)

Rnd 5: *Sc in the next 3 sts, 2 sc in the next* repeat from *to* around (30)

Rnd 6 – 12: Sc in each st around (30)

Rnd 13: Sc in 5 sts, 2 sc in the next 6sts, sc in 8 sts, 2 sc in the next 6sts, sc in 5 sts (42)

Rnd 14: Sc in 5 sts, *sc in next st, 2 sc in next st*(repeat 6 times), sc in 8 sts, *2 sc in next st, sc in next st*(repeat 6 times), sc in 5 sts (54)

Rnd 15 – 19: Sc in each st around (54)

Rnd 20: Sc in 5 sts, *sc in next st, sc2tog*(repeat 6 times), sc in 8 sts, *sc2tog, sc in next st*(repeat 6 times), sc in 5 sts (42)

Rnd 21: Sc in 5 sts, sc2tog (6 times), sc in 8 sts, sc2tog (6 times), sc in 5 sts (30)

Rnd 22: Sc in each st around (30)

Rnd 23: *Sc in the next 3 sts, sc2tog* repeat from *to* around (24)

Rnd 24: *Sc in the next 2 sts, sc2tog* repeat from *to* around (18)

Start stuffing the head.

Rnd 25: *Sc in the next st, sc2tog* repeat from *to* around (12)

Finish stuffing the head.

Rnd 26: Sc2tog around (6) Finish off with a slst to beginning st of this rnd, leaving a tail to weave the hole closed.

Finishing details – Cut 2 tear drop shapes from yellow felt and cut 2 more tear drop shapes (slightly larger on one side) from black felt. Place the back felt behind the yellow felt and glue or sew the 2 pieces together, making sure the black is showing above the yellow to form like an eyelid. Glue or sew the finished piece to the face. Using black embroidery floss and a needle, embroider a mouth and nose onto the face. Sew the finished head to the wreath. Take 4 strands (about 3 inches long) and attach to the top of the head. Once they are attached, pull the strands apart making the “hair” frayed.

Neck Piece

Using Sage Green:

Chain enough that it will go around the neck area. Sc in second st from hook and in each st across. Finish off and weave in ends. Pull pieces of yarn through each sc stitch (no need to put them in the back stitches) and pull the strands apart making it look frayed like fur. Glue neck piece on around the neck (or sew).

Add embellishments to your wreath and add a piece of ribbon to the back of the top of the wreath to hang.

Enjoy your masterpiece ❤
