Cro-Shayley makes the Merry-Go-Round Teddy Bear

Need a big BEAR hug??? Oh man, do I have the perfect, snuggly pattern for you! I had a few skeins of Red Heart Snuggle Bunny in my yarn stash and I was dying to use it to create something soft for my new friend, Weston. Snuggle Bunny is similar to Red Heart Baby Clouds which was the yarn used to create the “oldie-but-oh-so-goodie” Merry-Go-Round Teddy Bear so I thought I’d try it. This finished teddy bear is big and I LOVE IT! Standing approximately 21” tall, longer than some newborns. :)

First the pattern starts with making the ears.

Then the muzzle.

Then with Red Heart Super Saver, make the eyes and nose.

Then onto the arms and legs, stuffing as you go.

Now onto the good stuff…the head and body. I mentioned this before in a previous blog. When crocheting stuffed animals, I love it when designers create patterns where the head and body are made as one piece instead of having the attach the head to the body.

Once that’s complete then attached the arms.

Then attach the legs.

Then attach the ears and muzzle. Ahhhh, it’s looking like a bear!

Add the eyes, nose and stitch the mouth and there you have it…..the Merry-Go-Round Teddy Bear! Don’t you just want to give him a BIG bear hug?!?! :)
