Free Teddy Bear Crochet Pattern in chunky Yarn 

Being a beginner at crochet you may see terminology used like 'how to crochet an amigurumi teddy bear'.  But DO not be put off, Amigurumi is simply put, the Japanese name given to the particular type and style of crochet to make stuffed toys and plush animals, usually using just single crochet and working in the round. 

SO please do not be put off crocheting the little bear or attempting 'amigurumi' style patterns. 

This Little crochet bear is actually a smaller variation of my Classic Crochet teddy bear Pattern.  Which is also a free pattern on my website

You can find the easy traditional crochet teddy bear pattern HERE 

I was asked to create a small crochet teddy bear pattern using the fluffy type chunky yarn (that folks are scooping up from the middle aisle bargain baskets that's so popular just now. 

The original teddy would turn out much larger using this yarn!  

I think I might try it out, however, It looks so gorgeous as it is made with a chunky yarn 

The Crochet bear pattern is a simply written pattern, and the Crochet teddy bear is NOT made with the magic circle at the beginning, SO it's great for beginners 

However, you must be able to work in rounds and in single crochet. 

YOu will USE a marker to keep track of each round as you go. 

The arms and legs are for the teddy bear are made first, and you can join them as you go, ensuring a robust little teddy bear, meaning all you need to sew on is the head and ears.

How do you make a teddy bear nose and mouth? 

how to crochet  teddy bear EASY for beginners

This is completely up to you to freestyle however I prefer to use a dark yarn and start at the NOSE just above the muzzles in the first row and work a Triangle shape, sewing back and forth with the dark yarn until all filled in. (Try NOT to pull these stitches tightly as it will pull the features ) 

I then take the yarn slightly down and to the left pull through and then back UP to the middle, repeating for the opposite side of the mouth. 

I THEN 
take the dark yarn and place small eyebrows to give the teddy some character.
