I saw Angry Angel's bazaar topic recently and the tiny teddies she made just made me go squee! And then I went on a mad rampage of tiny crochet thingies myself, starting with bears.

These were based off Angry Angel's bear pattern, but I made a couple of changes. The heads are much bigger, I gave them bobbles for tails and I made them 2-toned. I could post my version of the pattern if Angry Angel is fine with that.

After that, I made a Longcat and Tacgnol following the same principle.

And finally, I made a bunch of little chickies. These are also crocheted as one piece, so they're insanely fast to do.

I asked Angry Angel if I could post my adaption of her tiny teddy pattern, and she said yes, so here it is.  Grin

I hope it's comprehensible, English isn't my first language. If you have any questions about the pattern or suggestions on how to describe it clearer, let me know.

Beary Bears

Based on Angry Angel's tiny teddy pattern: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=289504.msg3296032#msg3296032
Adapted by Wayuki.


- Oddments of yarn in 3 colors: one for the main body, one for the ears and paws, and one for the facial features.
- A hook appropriate to the weight of the yarn. I personally used fingering weight yarn and a 2.0 mm hook.
- Yarn needle.
- A small amount of polyfill.

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

R1: With the main body color, make 6sc into a ring.
R2: sc inc in every st around (12st)
R3: Switch to the ear color, 3 dc bobble st in the 1st st. Switch to the main body color again. Continue, increasing in the 2nd, 4th and 6th st. Switch to the ear color again, 3 dc bobble st in the 7th st. Switch back to the body color, increasing in the 8th, 10th and 12th st (18st)
R4-R6: Work even (18st)
R7: [sc next 2 sc tog, sc in next sc] around (12st). This is a good time to embroider on the face, because you can still reach the back to tie it off easily. Set the eyes low and wide for a cutesy look.
R8: [sc next 2 sc tog, sc in next sc] around (8st).
R9: sc inc in the 1st st, 3 sc, sc inc in the 5th st, 3sc (10st)
R10: 2 sc, switch to paw color, 4 dc popcorn st in the 3rd st. Switch to main body color, 3 sc. Switch to paw color, 4 dc popcorn st in the 7th st. Switch to main body color,  3 sc (10st)
R11: Work even (10st)
R12: 7 sc, sc inc in 8th st, 2sc (11st)
R13: 1 sc, sc inc in 2st st, 8sc, 3 dc bobble st in the 11th st to make the tail (12st)
R14: 4 sc, switch to paw color, 4 dc popcorn st in the 5th st. Switch to main body color, 3 sc. Switch to paw color, 4 dc popcorn st in the 9th st, 3 sc (12st). Stuff in all the yarn ends from the color switches, then stuff the remainder of the body with polyfill.
R15: 3 sc. After that, decrease til you're left with 6 st. Tie off, sew hole shut and pull yarn up into body to make sure the bottom is flat.

Note: you can easily make a cat out of your beary by replacing the ears and tail. Replace the ears with 3 dc popcorn stitches instead of bobble stitches. Replace the bobble tail with: 1 sc, ch 11, turn, skip first ch from the hook, 5 ss, 4 sc, sc back into original st.

You could make the cat version into Longcat by working straight for a bit after the increase in the 13th round. I used 10 additional rounds, but feel free to make yours loooooonger. Smiley

You made pocket-sized pieces of perfection ! P.P.P.!

I love your choice of uncommon colours for some of the cute bears, like the orange/black bear and the lemon/lime bear. Smiley

Very cute! You could make loads of chicks for easter (in Sweden te bunnies haven't caught up yet. We still have chicken for decorations) Nice table decorations.
