Bear Baby Crochet Pattern

Bear Baby Crochet Pattern

You may know that I love bears, they are near and dear to my heart! So of course, a Bear Baby Crochet Pattern set is a must to design.  This design is not just a bear beanie and tushy but it includes accessories. You can add little bear paws and you can add a bears favorite meal, fish!  You can create a fun newborn photo shoot with this set, you can then use the bear beanie for those everyday wear.  This crochet pattern uses simple crochet stitches, with increases, decreases and then front post stitches but it is a fun prop to work up.

Bear Tail:

To make a pom pom by hand, you will want to wrap the yarn around your hand about 100 times, then tie a tight knot around the center of the loops (several times) until the knot is secure, then trim the loops until desired.  Need help with the making the pom pom by hand, see the video tutorial.
