Free giant bunny lovey crochet pattern

The big bear lovey crochet pattern is easy skill level. It is made using super bulky blanket yarn and works up really quickly. I chose white yarn to create a polar bear but it looks fab in other colours too! To complete the project you will also need a 10mm crochet hook, toy stuffing,12mm safety eyes and some black DK yarn for the tapestry face. For babies and young children I advice creating tapestry eyes for extra safety. To make the bear lovey you will need some basic sewing and tapestry skills and will need to know all the basic crochet stitches. You may also like the free bunny version of this pattern.
