Today we like to crochet a polar bear and with that free pattern this is also very easy. For Kalle the polar bear we first crochet the head and body and then the arms, legs, ears, tail and a snout. Then everything is put together and the crocheted polar bear is ready to cuddle and love.
Here you find the size specifications for den amigurumi polar bear Kalle without ears.
|2,5 mm (shown example)||125m / 50g, 100% Cotton||9cm||11,5cm|
|Häkelnadel 3,5 mm||85m / 50g, 100% Cotton||11,5cm||16cm|
For the Amigurumi polar bear we first crochet the head and body in one piece. Then we still crochet arms, legs, ears, tail and snout. Finally all parts are sewn together and also some little details are embroidered. So fast your crocheted polar bear is already finished.
The head for the polar bear we crochet from top to bottom in spiral rounds exclusively with double crochet stitches. If you want to attach safety eyes, you will find an instruction at the correct place. Once you have finished crocheting the head, the thread is not cut off and we continue with the body.
Now we crochet the body next to the head. Thus your polar bear gets a stable neck, you should make sure to fill all parts as well.
We crochet two polar bear legs now. Thereby we crochet from bottom to top in spiral rounds with only double crochet stitches. The decreases in the 8th round should not be offset, so that the correct shape results. At the end you let a long thread to sew them to the body.
First you look for the middle between the eyes and embroider the nose. For this you can use black or brown Darning Yarn.
Start with horizontal stitches around two stitches until the nose has the desired volume. Then you stitch on a vertical stitch and two stitches at the sides. The last three stitches should look like an inverted Y.
Next thing is sewing on the ears. Fold them flat and sew them on with the straight side to the head. The ears should have a slight curve to the back and make a pretty straight line in the middle of the head.
Now you can sew on the arms. They are at the side of the body right underneath the head. You can use the method for thread joints to get movable arms. Just take a look at the tutorial, because it´s really simple.
In the end the legs are folded and sewn on the body. Attend that the feet need to look slightly outside, so the polar bear gets no X legs. Also the gap between both legs should be right under the nose.
I congratulate you to own a personal polar bear. By the way he likes to eat fish at most. See you!
