You might be ‘bear-y’ excited for this post! Below are a range of 39 bear and bear-themed crochet patterns that you can easily make. There are teddy bears, baskets, blankets and more for you to choose to make!
There are both free and paid crochet patterns – all of which look amazing, cute and are easy to make. Most are amigurumi and as such they use typical stitches found in amigurumi patterns such as single crochet and magic ring/circles.
Some of the below patterns are crocheted flat and in a round, so may use different stitches to create different effects. While most of the patterns are using US terminology, I have noted if the pattern happens to use UK terminology instead.
