Teddy Bear with Overalls – Free Crochet Pattern

When I was diving into the world of amigurumi, one of the first things I wanted to learn how to make was a teddy bear. To me, it was a simple plush that could be created in so many different ways. If you search Pinterest or Ravelry for teddy bear patterns, you will find an unending list of every kind from large fluffy ones to tiny ones to sit on your desk. It can be overwheming to decide which to make and truly you could make a different one every week for a long time. I have made several different teddy bear plushes in my years of crocheting, but I think this pattern is my favorite. It is a simple design with cute overalls to give it some personality. Plus I’m a sucker for a cute animal in human clothes. I designed this bear when my cousin asked for a blue bear for her son, for his Easter basket. I hope making this bear makes you smile as much as it made me smile.

If you enjoy this pattern, please give me a follow on social media and let me know what other free patterns you would love to see! Also, I love when you tag me in your creations. Happy crocheting 🙂

TEDDY BEAR CROCHET PATTERN

MATERIALS & TOOLS

  • Yarn (Light Blue, Dark Blue, Black & White) I used a mix of Red Heart Brand & Loops and Threads yarn, medium, 100% acrylic but feel free to use the yarn of your choosing, the size of your yarn will determine the final size of your creation.
  • Crochet hook (Size G, 4.0 mm)
  • Polyfil – fiber fill stuffing
  • Safety eyes or black felt
  • Safety nose or black felt
  • Sewing needle
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker
  • Sewing pins

ABBREVIATIONS

  • THIS PATTERN USES US CROCHET TERMS
  • Ch – chain
  • Sc – single crochet
  • Inc- single crochet increase (2 sc in each stitch)
  • Slst – slip stitch
  • Dec- decrease (I use the invisible decrease in all of my creations for a cleaner look)
  • Fo – fasten off
  • Magic ring– Make a loop, leaving a long tail to work with. Insert hook in center of loop, yarn over and draw up a loop. Yarn over, pull through to make the first chain (this does not count as a stitch). Continue to crochet over the loop and tail with the number of stitches called for. There are many wonderful YouTube videos on how to make a magic circle if you are a visual learner! Always move your stitch marker to the last stitch in the round.

THIS PATTERN IS WORKED IN CONTINUOUS ROUNDS.
