Valentines Pattern!


I finished my Valentines Pattern. It's a little pink and white bear, who needs YOUR love to be happy~ I really liked designing this little one, the pattern came out so lovely, I think I'll make many more of these bears. The pattern is available for free on ravelry as PDF download, but if you scroll down, you can see the pattern too....

I'm also working on my contest entry for the "Amigurumi Talk"-group at ravelry. I only have the head finished at the moment, because her hair took a lot of time...

Little Amigurumi Pink Bear
He wants your love

~~~*About this pattern*~~~

This pattern is crocheted using continuous rounds, you don’t have to join rounds UNLESS noted otherwise. This means you need a stitch marker to keep track of where the new rounds start. Move up the marker when you start a new round. Make sure you crochet tightly enough, so the stuffing won’t show trough, otherwise take a smaller hook.

* A skein of white acrylic yarn
* A skein of light pink acrylic yarn
* A skein of dark pink acrylic yarn
* Fiberfill
* Embroidery floss
* Embroidery needle
* Two dark colored beads or 6mm eyes for a small bear/ 9mm eyes for a big bear
* 1.75 mm crochet hook for a small bear/ 3.5mm for a big bear

These are the abbreviations used in this pattern:
