What You Get

I absolutely LOVE this bear! He’s one of the few animals I’ve designed that I refuse to let go of my original sample!

He’s big and cuddly, and reminds me of the teddy bear I had when I was little. My teddy bear was named ‘teddy’, and he was medium brown with a cute tan snout. I had him for years and dragged him around everywhere with me!

So, when I set out to design a teddy bear, I wanted to make one that would stand up to the test of time like my teddy. That’s when it hit me: felting! By felting your crochet, the teddy bear is extra-durable and thick-skinned, but still super-soft and loveable.

He’ll make a fantastic friend for the child in your life! (yes, even if the child in your life is yourself ;) )

This adorable bear stacks up at 11 inches tall! Gerry is a fantastic beginning project for felting: it’s so easy! You crochet the pieces from a wool yarn, and then toss them in the washing machine, and magic happens! This project is crocheted holding two strands of yarn together and a big hook, so it works up fast.

This is a digital pattern delivered instantly by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)


The finished bear is roughly 11 inches tall when finished.
