Thanks for the feature! I'm glad people are still getting a kick out of this pattern. Smiley

@ denisedenise: Just make a tube! Grin Going down in hook size may help with making the stitches nicer. I always use a much smaller hook than what's recommended on the wrapper!  Wink

Thanks for the comments everyone!

I'll see if I can backtrack the pattern. I kinda freestyled my way through.  Grin
3  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Sweater bearies (with pattern) on: July 11, 2010 03:14:43 AM
The weather in my area has been ridiculously warm lately, and here I am making bears with... sweaters.





And here's the pattern for these bears! Let me know if you find any mistakes.

Sweater bearies

Materials:

- Yarn scraps in various colors of your choice ( body color, muzzle color, sweater color, two different sweater stripe colors).
- Black beads for the eyes.
- Embroidery floss for the nose.
- A hook appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used fingering weight yarn and a 2.0 mm hook, which resulted in a 3 inch bear.
- Yarn needle.
- Polyfill.

Note: When switching colors, the last loop you pull through the stitch before the switch already has to be in the new color.

Torso
The torso is worked in the round in rows, not a spiral. This is to make sure the color changes line up neatly.

R1: Using the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring, sl st to close.
R2: ch 1, sc inc in next st, around, sl st to close (12)
R3: ch 1, sc inc in next st, sc in next st, around, sl st to close (18)
R4: ch 1, sc around, sl st to close (18) Change to the sweater color.
R5: ch 1, sc around, sl st to close (18)
R6: ch 1, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 16 st, sl st to close (17) Change to stripe color A.
R7: ch 1, sc around, sl st to close (17) Change to stripe color B.
R8: ch 1, sc in next 8 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 7 st, sl st to close (16)
R9: ch 1, sc around, sl st to close (16) Change to stripe color A.
R10: ch 1, sc in next 12 st, sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 2 st, sl st to close (15) Change to the sweater color.
R11: ch 1, sc around, sl st to close (15) Fasten off and stuff.

Head
R1: Using the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, around (12)
R3: sc inc in next st, sc in next st, around (18)
R4: sc inc in next st, sc in next 2 st, around (24)
R5: sc inc in next st, sc in next 3 st, around (30)
R6: sc inc in next st, sc in next 4 st, around (36)
R7-R12: Work even (36)
R13: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 4 st, around (30)
R14: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 3 st, around (24)
R15: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 2 st, around (18)
R16: sc next 2 st tog, sc in next 4 st, around (15) Fasten off and stuff.

Muzzle
R1: Using the muzzle color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, around (12) Fasten off.

Embroider the nose, then sew the muzzle to the head. After that, sew the head to the torso. Make sure to orient the seam of the torso color changes towards the side, so that it will be hidden by the bear's left arm.
Sew on black beads for eyes, set wide and low.

Ears (make two)
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in next st, around (12)
R3: sc inc in next st, sc in next st, around (18)
R4-R5: Work even (18) Fasten off.

Don't stuff the ears, but fold them flat. Sew them to the head at a curve, so they are nicely cupped.

Arms (make two)
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2: sc around (6) Change to the sweater color.
R3-R7: Work even (6) Fasten off and sew to the torso.

Collar
R1: ch 19, turn, sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc in next 17 ch. Fasten off.

Wrap the collar around the neck of the bear, wrong side of the stitches facing outward. Secure at the back of the neck.

Legs (make two)
R1: With the body color of your choice, make 6 sc into a ring.
R2-R4: Work even (6) Fasten off and sew to the torso.

I decided to make a demoness doll after seeing the one by Vox Mortuum on Etsy. I did buy her pattern, but in the end I actually designed my own instead. After finishing, I couldn't bear to cover up her curvy figure, so I sewed on some beady nipples and called it done. Maybe I'll make her an outfit at some point, but for now, she's naughty.  Grin

I find that my joins are pretty inconspicuous, at least when I'm working in single crochet. But to get that result, I purposely make the both the joining stitch and the chain obscenely tight.  Cheesy

If you post a picture of what you have so far, it'll be easier to tell what the problem might be.  Wink

I think you did pretty good for your first ami!  Grin

Getting nice and clean stitches mainly comes with a bit of practice. Also, you could use a smaller hook and really make a point of tightening every stitch. This way you get a tighter fabric which is less likely to show the stuffing.

As for inside/outside, the right side is the side you're looking at while making the stitches.

Hope that helps!  Cheesy
