Pattern: the Fluff Bears

l1017763-logo

l1017784-logo

These little fluff bears are warm, fuzzy, and oh so sweet!  Coco and Mochi are made of a special novelty yarn called eyelash yarn that is more difficult to work with than your typical acrylic or cotton yarn, so embark on this project if you are up for a challenge!  Even though the individual stitches are difficult to see when working with eyelash yarn, this also means that it is more forgiving since it is harder to see mistakes!

These teddies would make wonderful gifts this winter, and why not personalize them by having them hold or wear different objects (e.g. guitar, book, hat, ballerina tutu) based on your interests or the interests of the person you are gifting them to!

Materials:


Important Notes:

  • I worked in continuous rounds (vs. joined rounds).  Feel free to follow along with my blog post HERE to see step-by-step photos.
  • I used a 3.5 mm crochet hook when working with the eyelash yarn and a 2.00 mm crochet hook when working with the lightweight yarn and embroidery floss (for Coco’s scarf).
  • When working with the eyelash yarn, be sure that the “wrong side” is facing outwards as it is fluffier than the “right side” (read about “The Right Side of AmigurumiHERE).

  • Using embroidery floss, tie several knots to form base of yarn ball.  Continue wrapping embroidery floss around base of knots, adding glue from glue gun periodically to help floss stay in place.  Once desired size is achieved, cut off.
