GRIZZLY BEAR

LEFT LEG

Using brown yarn, working in continuous rounds

Rnd 1 : Stitch 6sc into a magic ring (6)
Rnd 2-3 : sc in each stitch around (6)

Fasten off.

Left leg, Rnds 1 to 3

RIGHT LEG

Repeat as per left leg for Rnds 1-3 and then, instead of fastening off, move on to Rnd 4.

Rnd 4: Ch2. Insert the hook into the left leg. Working around the left leg, sc in the first 2 stitches, 2sc, sc in the next 3 stitches. Working across the ch stitches, sc in the 2 chains. Repeat around the right leg and opposite side of the chain. (18)

This will connect both legs together and form one continuous round for the body.

Rnd 5: *sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 6 times (24)
Rnd 6-12: sc in each stitch around (24)
Rnd 13: *sc in the next 6 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (21)
Rnd 14: *sc in the next 5 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (18)
Rnd 15: *sc in the next 4 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (15)

Before continuing with the decrease rounds, stuff the body. If you are using safety eyes insert them at approx Rnd 14, 3-4 stitches apart.

Rnd 16: *sc in the next 3 stitches, invdec* Repeat 3 times (12)
Rnd 17: invdec in each stitch around (6)

Fasten off leaving a long tail. Using a yarn needle, weave the tail end through the last Rnd of stitches and pull tight to close. Fasten off and weave in the ends.

SNOUT

Using brown yarn, working in continuous rounds.

Rnd 1: Stitch 6 sc into a magic ring (6)
Rnd 2: *sc in the next 2 stitches, 2sc* Repeat 2 times (8)
Fasten off.

Using black yarn and a yarn needle, stitch the nose across the top of the snout (approx 2 stitches wide) and a mouth detail (1 stitch wide across a diagonal).

ARMS (Make 2)

Using brown yarn, working in continuous rounds.

Rnd 1: Stitch 4 sc into a magic ring (4)
Rnd 2: *sc, 2sc* repeat 2 times (6)
Rnd 3: sc in each stitch around (6)
Rnd 4: *sc, invdec* Repeat 2 times (4)
Rnd 5: sc2tog around (2)

Fasten off.

EARS (Make 2)

Using brown yarn, working in the round:

Rnd 1 : Work 3sc into a magic ring (3)

Fasten off.

Tie the beginning and tail end yarn together tight to fix the semi-circular shape. Weave in end yarns.

TAIL
Using brown yarn.

Work the following into a magic ring: 2sc, 2hdc, sc. Fasten off.

Tie off end yarn as previously with the ears,

ASSEMBLY

Attach the snout first, directly centred between the eyes, with the nose detailing to the top.

Attach the ears to the top of the head on either side in line with the eyes.

Attach the arms to either side of the body. You can play around with the positioning depending on how you want the bear posed.

Lastly, attach the tail to the lower back of the body.

And that’s it, the first bear is complete!

ICE BEAR

The polar bear pattern follows the grizzly pattern exactly. The only difference being that each piece is created using white yarn.

PANDA

The panda has deliberately been left until last as it is the most complicated of the three bears due to the colour changes. The basic pattern is exactly the same as the two before, it’s just when and where to swap the colours.

BODY

Create the left and right legs using black yarn and continue in black yarn until the end of Rnd 5. Switch to white yarn for Rnds 6-7, Back to black for Rnds 8-9 and then continue in white yarn as the main colour thereafter.

Rnd13: Switch to black yarn for stitches 9 and 10, 13 and 14. All the rest are in white.
Rnd 14: Switch to black yarn for stitches 8 and 9, 12 and 13. All the rest are in white.

OTHER PARTS

Again these are worked exactly the same as the pther bears. The ears, arms and tail are all in black yarn. The snout is worked in white yarn.

And there you have it, your bear trio are complete!
