Cuddly Teddy Bear Pattern

Updated: 6 days ago

I really love teddy bears and when I was going through my teddy bear crochet phase I decided I really wanted to challenge myself to make something that was bigger than a "mini" plush, so I decided to try to make a truly cuddle-sized teddy bear, which is how I ended up making a plush that is bigger than anything I've ever designed a pattern for.

When it came to designing this teddy I drew up a lot of designs before landing on this sort of vintage look and I love how it turned out! This teddy is about 13 inches tall, which is about double the size of most of my other creations, so it was a little outside of my comfort zone, but I think it was worth venturing out of my comfort zone in the end!

I hope you guys enjoy this pattern! If you love it, please consider pinning it to your Pinterest so more people can see it! Thanks and lets get to crocheting, shall we?
