In this post, I show you how to crochet a teddy bear comforter for newborns.

This is my first one, and I hope you enjoy this free pattern with video tutorial!

Useful information before starting


Working time: HALF day

Skill level: 🌸🌸🌸 intermediate


I suggest embroidering the details on the amigurumis head and do not apply small eyes or plastic noses that are usually used for amigurumi, because 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.
