Tiny Ted

First pattern of 2018. These bears are a quick and mini version of my bears. They are only 7cm tall. 




You will need:
  • Yarn needle 
  • Soft toy filling
  • 3mm crochet hook
  • 5mm safety eyes
  • DK Yarn
    • Approx. 60m
Stitches and abbreviations used:
(I am from England but use US crochet terms)
  • MC - Magic circle/ring (sc unless otherwise specified)
  • Ch - Chain 
  • SC - Single crochet 
  • Inc - Increase stitch (2 single crochets into one stitch)
  • Dec - Decrease stitch (single crochet 2 stitches together)
  • ST - Stitch                              
  • SLST - Slip stitch 
  • R – Round or Row
  • FO - Finish Off
Other things to note....
  • This is worked in continuous rounds. It is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track.
  • The number in ( ) at the end of each round indicates the total stitch count for that round.
  • *  * indicates repeated series of stitches.
  • Use invisible decreases for a neater finished product.
  • Stitches in [ ]  are worked into one stitch.
  • Remember to stuff the product little and often as you work.
