Crochet Bear Amigurumi

Crochet Bear Amigurumi

Create your very own adorable amigurumi bear using the art of crochet. This project involves using a small hook and yarn to meticulously craft each part of the bear, from its tiny ears to its fluffy tail. The process of crocheting an amigurumi bear allows you to customize the colors and details to make it uniquely yours. Whether you're a beginner or an experienced crocheter, this project is a fun and rewarding way to showcase your skills and creativity. Crafting a crochet bear amigurumi involves following a pattern that guides you through each step of the creation process. You'll start by crocheting the bear's body and head, then move on to its limbs and facial features. Once all the pieces are crocheted, you'll carefully assemble them to bring your bear to life. The final touches, such as adding eyes and a nose, will give your amigurumi bear its charming personality. Whether you choose to make a classic brown bear or experiment with different colors and textures, the possibilities are endless when it comes to crocheting your own amigurumi bear.


• yarn of choice for the body
• embroidery thread or scrap yarn for the face features (black and white)
• optional: safety eyes
• crochet hook in a right size for your yarn
• toy stuffing
• sewing pins, yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker
I used: Ricorumi DK in color 056 and hook 2,5 mm

Bobble Stitch
In this pattern you will make a bobble for a bear’s tail, it will be made with 3 triple crochet. To make this, make three tr in the same stitch, but do not finish first two (stop before the last yarn over). When finishing the last tr, pull the loop through all four loops that you will have on your hook.

Pattern notes

The whole thing is worked in continous rounds. If you will use the same yarn and hook as me, your toy will measure approx. 10 cm in height.
