Elliot The Bear – FREE Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Elliot The Bear – FREE Amigurumi Crochet Pattern

Elliot was born as part of the “Amigurumi showcase,” an Instagram competition hosted for some awesome crocheters from different parts of the world. I participated, and even though I wasn’t chosen to continue, I decided to share my pattern because I like Elliot a lot.

This little bear is french and is very shy but is trying to be bold with his clothes. He loves fashion and color, so today he’s bringing his best outfit to show you and inspire you. He dreams of being a fashion blogger next to his twin brother. Do you think they can do it?

Button: Yarn D – Make 1

For this piece work in rows.

3 ch.
Row 1: sl into the 2nd ch from your hook then 1 sl in each ch across (2 sl)

Cut the strand and use the yarn needle to pass both tails thru the middle of the hat (one in the middle and the other, one stitch away from that) and then make a knot inside of the hat with them. See the following photos.

Bow tie: Yarn E – Make 1

For this piece work in rows.

7 cad.

Row 2: 1 ch, 1 sc in each ch across, turn. (6 sc)
Row 3: 1 ch, 1 sc in each ch across. (6 sc)

* Cut the yarn and hide.

Now, cut a long thread of the Yarn D thread it in your yarn needle and make a knot at the end. Pass the yarn thru the center of the red part of the bow tie and then wrap it around of the middle several times while pulling to compress it. When you feel the bow tie is ready, secure the thread and leave enough yarn to sew the bow tie to the body. See the following photos.



Assembling:

Once all body parts are ready, you must sew the ears and the arms to the body and then the muzzle in the front (adding a little bit of filling), between the eyes. When the bear body is ready sew the hat (with a little bit of filling inside) and the bow tie. Finally, embroider the nose following the next explanation.

Sew the ears to the head between rounds 20 and 21. The arms between rounds 11 and 12. The muzzle between rounds 11 and 17.

Nose:

With medium brown (Yarn A), embroider the nose between the eyes starting from the bottom. Follow the numbers below:

Cheekies:

Color the cheeks using a fabric marker, chalk, or makeup, like blush or eye shadow (you can use a cotton swab for that).

And done! Now you have your own Elliot.
