Amigurumi bear: NED


When i find it hard to sleep at night i crochet and sometimes watch Youtube to past time. While on Youtube, i saw movie trailer of "Pooh". It brought back memories from my childhood.My mom was a seamstress. She hand sewn me a bear when i was 8. After a moment of reminiscing, i got this idea of crocheting a my own version of a bear to give to my mom for Mother's day, so every time she see the bear she'll remember me, which i know she always does and always will.
"Ted" is the first thing came to me for a bear's name,but pretty common right? So i changed the first letter of it to my name's initial.
Meet "Ned" my momma's Bear.



Pattern notes:
Materials: I used sports weight yarn with 2.75mm crochet hook and the size of my finished bear is 7 inches.
   You can use any yarn and hook size with this pattern  to make a bear of your desired size.
  When made with Red Heart Super Saver with size F /3.75mm crochet hook the finished bear stands 10 and a half inches tall.
Gauge: Gauge isn't a big deal with this pattern, but i suggest making pieces that have to be similar in size like arms and legs in one sitting.
