Free Crochet Pattern for a Tiny Teddy - Baby Bear Heart (Free amigurumi Patterns)

free crochet pattern for a tiny teddy bear- free amigurumi pattern-free crochet patterns toys
This little amigurumi tiny crochet teddy bear is just adorable, making him the perfect crochet project to make for your Valentine. at Any time of the year.  I loved making him and quickly jotted down the pattern so I could share it with you.  Baby Bear Heart is what I eventually called this little creation who stands 4  inches tall.
Or he could be smaller if you use thinner yarn and a smaller hook, making him perfect for making as a keychain charm
Working with yarn in this way is fun, and you can become very creative,  but it can be tricky, so you should be capable of working with tight stitches and in small rounds.  I also suggest learning magic circle, and invisible decreasing. I have also made this for a friend who wanted to tell their hubby they were expecting a little girl, and asked me to crochet a small grey teddy with a pink heart!  so cute... I will be making a whole load of these to make and sell for the craft fairs I bet they would go like hot cakes. Great stash busting project, and you could change colour for his middle bit, or even stripes! Tiny ted is a really quick project to make too.
I used a 2.50mm hook, and a dark brown double knit yarn (this gives the teddy a lovely finish, so that when you fill him his stuffing does not show through.

2.50 mm hook
2 googley eyes (If making for a child then remember to use safety eyes)
tapestry needle
toy filling/ stuffing
If you want to make the little heart on a string you will need some red yarn and thin wire.

you will be working in single crochet, (sc) through out
2sctog= work 2 single crochet together to decrease.
sc= single crochet
2sc= increase by 1 in same stitch
 do not slip to join we will be working in a spiral, if it makes it easier I use a stitch marker to help me keep track on beginning and ending of rounds
An alternative to working a magic circle is to chain 2 and sc the amount of stitches into the first chain created.)
