Pattern: Teddy Ornaments

image

Get ready to “amigurumi-fy” your Christmas trees with these adorable round teddies all bundled up in their colourful scarves!  Whether you prefer pandas, koalas or ordinary teddies, they’re sure to add a touch of cuteness and craftiness to your trees this season!

Materials:

  • Lightweight yarn (3): brown for the teddy, grey for the koala, black and white for the panda; turquoise, pink, green and white for the scarves (I used Patons Grace mercerized cotton all throughout except for the brown) 
  •  2.00 mm crochet hook
  •  Yarn needle
  • Fiberfill
  • Black felt (around eyes of panda and koala’s nose) and white felt (around eyes of koala)
  • 6 mm safety eyes (for brown teddy) and 7.5 mm safety eyes (for koala and panda)
  • Black cord
  • Black embroidery floss (for brown teddy and panda nose)
  • Metal ornament hooks

Note:  I worked in continuous rounds (vs. joined rounds).

Have a very blessed and Merry Christmas, everyone :)  May these teddies bring some warmth, joy and love into your homes this season!  I would love to see your versions of these teddies on your tree, so please send me photos of your work through my e-mail (all_about_ami@hotmail.com), facebook page or twitter!

[Update #1: People have been sending me photos of their own teddy ornaments, and I’ve compiled them all in a Crochet Corner post!  Check out everyone’s own rendition of my teddy ornaments here.]

[Update #2: Anne of “A Gamer’s Wife" has modified my pattern using thicker, worsted weight yarn.  She has clearly laid out her edits in her blog post here.  Check it out if you want your ornaments to remain the original size but you want to use thicker yarn!]
