Lately I was asked if I could make a polar bear and it turned out so super cute and sweet I’ve decided to share a pattern with you.

Supplies:

– 4mm crochet hook
– 6mm safety eyes
– embroidery needle

Abbreviations:

mc – magic circle/ring
inc – increase (single crochet increase = two stitches in one stitch)
