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.
