FREE Crochet Teddy Beat Pattern (Small Teddy amigurumi Pattern)

A FREE amigurumi teddy bear crochet pattern. 

free crochet pattern for a tiny teddy bear- free amigurumi pattern-free crochet patterns toys

This little amigurumi tiny crochet bear pattern is easy to crochet making him the perfect crochet project to make for your Valentine's or indeed to give as a crochet gift Any time of the year. 

I loved making him and after posting him online you asked if there was a pattern so I quickly jotted down the pattern so I could share  with you. 

Baby Bear Heart is what I eventually called this little creation who stands just 4 inches tall!

I also have a small teddy plushie crochet pattern. This one is a little larger and is super cute too. 

The Crochet Teddy Plushie is a FREE crochet TOY pattern on my website HERE

You could crochet the small teddy bear even smaller if you use thinner yarn and a smaller hook, making him perfect for making a keychain charm. 

Amigurumi Patterns are a technical term usually reserved for making toys. 

Working with yarn in this way is fun, and you can become very creative,  but it can be tricky, so you should be confident working with tight stitches and in small rounds.

I also suggest learning magic circles and invisible decreasing. But these are NOT necessities to crochet this teddy. 

If you are looking for a simpler BASIC Crochet Teddy Bear Pattern 

I made the one in the main picture (GREY) above 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 floating heart!

He turned out so cute. The Original small crochet Teddy was made to look like Mr Beans Teddy! 

I will be making a whole load of these make and sell for the craft fairs I bet they would go like hotcakes. or turned into keyrings! 

This is a fab yarn stash-busting project, and you could change the color for his middle bit or even stripes! 

Tiny Teddy is a really quick crochet project to make too. And you can crochet him up quickly as a last-minute gift. 

Materials

I used a 2.50mm crochet hook. but if you're struggling using the smaller hook 
USE a 3.50mm crochet hook
you will be working in single crochet stitch
2  eyes (If making for a child then remember to use embroidered eyes)
tapestry needle 
filling/ stuffing
If you want to make the little heart on a string you will need some red yarn and thin wire.

NOTES: 

If you are comfortable working in amigurumi style I suggest you use the YARN UNDER method. (instead of yarn over, simply yarn under when you would normally yarn OVER the hook. 
* Working yarn under makes the stitching closer together and hides the ugly holes when decreasing. 
In your preferred color in double-knit yarn  

Abbreviations and Crochet stitches used 

 sc - single crochet stitch 
2sctog  -work 2 single crochet together to decrease.
2sc= increase by 1 by working 2 stitches into the same stitch (make an invisable decrease work the 2 stitches in the front loops only and single crochet together) 

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 of the beginning and end of rounds. 

You do not need to know how to make a magic circle/magic loop to make this crocheted toy. 

*An alternative to working a magic circle is to chain 2 and sc the number of stitches into the first chain created.)

You can also make the ARMS and legs FIRST and join them as you go!
