Free pattern to crochet teddy bear comforter

Useful information before starting

  • Working time: half day
  • skill level: 🌸🌸 intermediate

I suggest to embroider the details on the amigurumis head and do not apply small eyes or plastic noses that are usually used for amigurumi, cause it could be swallowed by the baby.

Embroider tight stitches to ensure that the baby’s small finger do not entangled in the thread.

The size must not to be too large or too small. It must be easily graspable by the newborn, but at the same time not bulky in its cradle.
