FREE PATTERN: Cross Your Heart Teddy

Hello lovelies!

A few weeks ago, I published the Heart Teddy Bear pattern on this blog. Since than I have made a lot of teddies, as did Michelle. They are really addictive, believe me!

My husband - who works in math education at uni - suggested that I should adapt the pattern, so that the legs are a bit shorter, the neck a bit wider and the head a bit larger. Apparently these changes would make it look more mathematical in order and thus cuter for the eye. I wasn't totally convinced but I tried and guess what?! He was right! I still like the larger Heart Teddy Bear but I also like the smaller, different version and so I decided to share that one with you too.

So without further ado, here is the Cross Your Heart Teddy Bear pattern! Thank you Angela from Get Knotted Yarn Craft for the wonderful name suggestion! 



Cross Your Heart Teddy Bear

You will need:
ca. 100gr DK Yarn (or any other yarn you like)
3 mm hook (use at least half a hook size smaller than you would usually use for the chosen yarn)
Stitch Counter
Safety Eyes
Safety Nose (or, embroider a nose on the snout piece with black yarn)
Scissors
Needle 

Note: I use the invisible decrease method for amigurumi. Planet June hat a great tutorial for this stitch in case you want to learn. :)
