Bedfellows Crochet Bear...any tips...


Really quick post, as yet again I'm shattered and really have to go to bed, but wanted to show you my next project..to crochet a bedfellow bear from the stitch and bitch book.

Now I'm getting on 'ok' with the Granny Squares...but has anyone crocheted a little toy like this and if so do you have any tips???

The pattern looks a bit 'full on'

Nighty night

Love Sam xx

He's really cute! I wouldn't worry too much as it's not like a wearable where it has to be a certain size - if you do go a bit wrong he would just look quirkier!

I would be inclined to skip the colour changes for a first attempt and make him in just one solid colour. Also if using a dark colour yarn you have to really keep your stitches nice and tight to prevent the stuffing from showing through (I give the yarn a little tug after each stitch).
Have fun x

I have always wanted to knit things like this. I tried to knit a penguin once. It didn't make it :( . Sorry, I'm no help with crochet. Good luck, it's adorable!

I'm just starting out with crochet and bought the Rowan crochet workshop book - it is really good at teaching you how to read patterns and starts right from the basics. I'm hopeless at crochet as it really doesn't come naturally to me - but I feel like I may get somewhere with that book. I'd recommend it!
