Mer-Bear Amigurumi Pattern

Updated: Mar 9

A while ago I was on a kind of bear kick and I also noticed that mermaids were really popular, so I did what any logical person might do... I Frankensteined the two to see what it would look like and I came up with a Mer-Bear.. Or a Bear-Maid? Either way, I made something that is both equally cute and terrifying. A bear that lives underwater!

I love this pattern so much, you can do so much with the color combinations and I even thought it might be cool to add jewels or a headband to it if I end up making it again! My favorite yarn to use for the tail is "I Love This Yarn" in any of the metallic colors, and you can find it at Hobby Lobby. I'm not sponsored or anything, I just think that yarn is pretty cool!

Let's get to the pattern, shall we?

I personally prefer to use felt for the eyes on this one, and this is what it looks like if you do that instead of safety eyes!
