Lil' Classic Bear

Picture of Lil' Classic Bear
Do you always face difficulty sewing Amigurumi’s head to its’ body? Are you looking for a simple and cute pattern to make it into a lovely gift for your loved ones or yourself? Or are you simply looking for a bear to cuddle to bed?

If that’s so, Lil’ Classic Teddy is the perfect bear for you! He stands approximately 28cm tall and 21cm wide. Being the biggest amigurumi I’ve created, he is just about the right size to cuddle in your arms. He is also one of the simpler patterns I’ve created, which makes it an easy project to complete. This pattern is created in a way that both the head and body is crocheted together so it saves you time and effort from sewing them together.
