“Miniature Thread Crochet Bear Pattern”

Pattern # 2

NOTE - All bears shown were made from this one pattern!

This crochet pattern is for a Miniature Jointed Thread Crochet Bear made from thread! The pattern has 12 pages of detailed instructions and has pictures to help you with your step by step creation of your very own Miniature Jointed Thread Crochet Bear. The finished size of the bear will be approximately 2 1/2" high. But by changing your thread size and hook size you can make bears in various sizes as shown above.  Just think of the wonderful gifts you could make of these bears to give to your family and friends (or yourself)! And as an added bonus I have included a free hat pattern in this booklet! This bear is not suitable for young children. The cost is for the pattern only, it does not include the finished bear.

Acrylic Punch Threads were used on the bears pictured in this pattern.

Finished Size Varies with Thread and Hook Used. The bear in the pattern was designed for and made with Acrylic Punch Thread.

Acrylic Punch Thread In color of your choice:  -  I used a Steel Crochet Hook Size 12 and Purr-Fect Punch Thread in Nutmeg color for the medium size bear. A Steel Crochet Hook Size 10 and 2 strands of Purr-Fect Punch Thread in Buttercrunch color for the large bear, and a Steel Crochet Hook Size 15 and Cameo Luster Thread in Cocoa color for the small bear. You can choose the colors you want for your bear!

Stuffing:  Cotton, Polyfill or wool. Cotton will give you a firmer pack with less tendency to show through the stitches. It also holds shaping better.

Embroidery Floss: For Nose and Accents.

Ribbon and/or bells: - Optional for accessorizing your bear.

2mm Black Onyx Beads or 2mm eyes on wire: For eyes if using punch thread. Or size needed for thread/yarn you choose.

Sharp Needle and/or Doll Making Needles:  -  I find the doll making needles are best for jointing and    running through the body.

Waxed Thread, Beading Thread or Upholstery Thread For attaching eyes and string jointing your bear.

Small Needle Nose Pliers or Cotter Key Tool: - Used for turning the cotter pin. You can also use it for  helping to pull the needle through the body when needed.

Scissors: - For snipping threads & trimming

Nap Riser Brush: - For brushing out brushable thread

#10 and 12 Steel Crochet Hook:  - For use with punch thread. You may have to adjust your hook size according to the thread you use.

2 - 1/4” Discs and 1 - 1/2” Cotter Pin for jointing
