This is Jethro.  hes a little on the depressed side as he's just getting over a really big cold.  he likes eating peanut butter on toast whilst watching heroes (he wants to be like peter when he grows up)  He constantly has his head in the clouds




I wrote down the pattern as well incase you were interested.  its my first ever pattern so there may be kinks in it okay.  If anyone follows this and finds any please lemme know kay otehrwise i'll never learn

Head
Round 1 In your bear's colour, make an adjustable ring and work 5 sc in the
              ring, do not join, being amigurumi we're going to be working in one big continuous loop
Round 2 [2 sc in each st] 5 times ----10 sts.
Round 3 [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 5 times -----15 sts.
Round 4 [sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st] 5 times ----- 20 sts.
Round 5 [sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st] 5 times ----- 25 sts.
Round 6 [sc in next 4 sts, 2 sc in next st] 5 times ----- 30 sts.
Round 7,8 &9 sc in each st around ----- 30 sts
Round 10 [sc in next 4 sts, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 25 sts.
Round 11 [sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 20 sts.
This is the point where I put in my bear's eyes.  I put them on round 9,  8 stitches apart, you could also attach a nose at this point too if you're going to be using a proper bear nose
Round 12 [sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 15 sts
This is the point where I then stuffed the head, get it in there nice and tight so the shape of the head is pretty even.
Round 13[sc in next st, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 10 sts.
Round 14 [sc2tog] 5 times ----- 5 sts.
Then just stitch the last little bit of a hole closed there you should have a pretty spherical ball with two beady eyes looking at you.

Body
In teddy colour make an adjustable ring and work 5 sc in the
ring, do not join, ----- 5sts.
Round 2 [2 sc in each st] 5 times ----10 sts.
Round 3 [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 5 times -----15 sts.
Round 4 [sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st] 5 times ----- 20 sts.
Round 5 [sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st] 5 times ----- 25 sts.
Round 6-10 sc in each st around ----- 25 sts
Round 11 [sc in next 3 sts, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 20 sts.
Round 12 [sc in next 2 sts, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 15 sts.
Round 13 [sc in next 1 sts, sc2tog] 5 times ----- 10sts.
Stuff firmly and evenly
Round 14 [sc2tog] 5 times ----- 5sts.
As with the head simply stitch up the hole and fasten off  weaving any spare wool into the body

Ears (make 2)
Round 1 In your bear's colour, make an adjustable ring and work 4 sc in the
              ring, do not join,
Round 2 [2 sc in each st] 5 times ----8 sts.
Round 3 [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 5 times -----12 sts.
Round 4 & 5 sc in each st around ----- 12 sts
Round 6 [sc in next st, sc2tog] 5 times ---- 8 sts
Fasten off and leave an amount of wool to use to attach the ear to the head

arms (make 2)
Round 1 In your bear's colour, make an adjustable ring and work 4 sc in the ring, do not join,
Round 2 [2 sc in each st] 5 times ----8 sts.
Round 3-7 sc in each st around -----8st
Fasten off leaving some wool left over to attach arms to body, stuff the arms ever so gently to give the bear a bit more substance

Legs (make 2)
In teddy colour make an adjustable ring and work 5 sc in the
ring, do not join, ----- 5sts.
Round 2 [2 sc in each st] 5 times ----10 sts.
Round 3 [sc in next st, 2 sc in next st] 5 times -----15 sts.
Round 4 [sc in next st, 2 sc2tog in next st] 5 times -----10 sts.
Round 5-8 sc in each st around -----10 sts.
Fasten off leaving some wool left over to attach legs to body.  I tend to stuff the legs gently but if you want to stuff them hard thats fine.

Attach all appendages where you feel you want them and weave in excess wool

If using felt cut out small semi circles for ear lobes and stick them on using tacky glue, you could also cut out an oblong shape to be used for an exposed tummy and a smaller oblong with a smile stitched on for a muzzle.  Basically once you have the generic shape of the bear you could customise it anyway you see fit.

Anyway I hope that all works out, if anyone finds anything wrong with my pattern (bearing in mind its my first..bearing LOL no pun intended) please let me know so I can change it.  Cheers. Happy amigurumi-ing
