FREE AMIGURUMI BEAR PATTERN: Gigi the cuddly bear

PATRÓN EN ESPAÑOL

SCHEMA IN ITALIANO

Thank you for stopping by!

I want to share one of my favourite patterns with you: an amigurumi bear, quite little so it can fit in a hand but very cuddly! It’s beginner-friendly (only sewing the parts might be a bit tricky) but it’s an enjoyable project for seasoned crocheters, too.

Crocheted with a 3.5 mm hook, it measures approx. 13 cm.

I am very fond of this little fellow, and I love crocheting it on every occasion (craft fairs, birthdays, Christmas…), on every possible color. Who doesn’t love teddy bears, specially with such a cute face?

It was acommission from a girl who wanted to gift it to a bear-loving friend. She only said to me “I want a bear, not big, and as cuddliest as possible”.

Well, do you think he is cuddliest enough? I certainly do!

So here comes the pattern! Please, advise me I you find any mistake. Thank you!:
