Teddy time

A little filler project, I love doing amigurami, the first item I ever crocheted was amigurami animal 🙂 The pattern is Magnus Bear by Tatsiana Kupryianchyk  from www.lillabjorncrochet.com , I didn’t use the same yarn as the pattern stated-instead I used some Scheepjes cotton Catona denim which is a lovely cotton denim with a subtle stone washed effect. It worked up well with a clover 3mm hook to create the nice close fabric you need for amigurami, so I would recommend Scheepjes Catona for this purpose. For fun I made his body in a contrasting colour shade 170 and the main teddy was shade 102. I chose to use 12mm safety eyes and just embroidered the nose and mouth. I love the shape of the head of this teddy so I shall probably make a larger version in a different yarn, this bear measures just over 25cms in height.

Happy hooking 🙂
