Little Bigfoot Bear Free Crochet Pattern

brown crochet bear with hand stitched nose
This amigurumi Bear can be made in under 2 hours depending how fast you are with the hook. I make mine in about one hour, not rushing just taking my time. After viewing this pattern please look for him on Ravelry too, there are many project photos posted which show him in every color of the rainbow...

st = stitch
sc = single crochet
2tog = 2 stitches together
ch1 = chain one 
sl st = slip stitch


 Special notes: I worked in continuous rounds with a 3.75mm hook and worsted weight yarn medium #4.  Have any questions or if you come across a mistake in the pattern please leave a message in the comment section below. I used 7.5mm eyes for the bear pictured above. The bear below has oval character eyes which I found in a thrift store. I believe the size of those is between 9-10mm

2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc then 2sc in next st (18)

 MUZZLE: *Please click here for the revision to the muzzle. I added a smaller muzzle after this pattern was published

3-4) 1sc in each st
5) 1sc then 2tog (8)

    1. Hi Riikka!! No, this isn't the one. I made her a big one and used fun yarn so it looks fuzzy

      I have an album on facebook with the pictures here:

  6. Thank you , Sharon, for sharing these lovely patterns with us. I have in mind to do some in special yarns - sparkly, variegated etc, and attach to key rings. I think they would look really nice like that. Would it make it difficult if using different plies of wool or thread?

    1. Hello! Thanks for the message... the only time I had trouble was trying to use a chenille yarn, I quit shortly after starting with it. I've made these guys with crochet thread and also acrylic thread and those worked out for me with a smaller hook of course. Sport weight yarn would work too! I've never worked with Sparkly yarn but I imagine that would work just fine.

      Keep me posted!

  8. This passed weekend I watched your you tube videos on crocheting the Coraline doll. You do such beautiful work! I'm in awe at your ability! I've been out of work for quite a while so I've been on the hunt for free patterns. Pinterest has been a life saver for me, providing hours of enjoyment and it's only because of you and others who have such big hearts, that share your craft with the rest of us. I want to thank you for sharing your wonderful patterns.

  12. Crazy...at one point I thought the body was really the head and visa versa, so that is how I made my bear. The ears seemed way too big so I did another crazy thing. I did not look at the pictures. Now I see where I made changes. It is a great pattern. Easy to use and learned how to deal with shapes.

    1. Hi there, the oval white eyes are called character eyes and I got those in a thrift store. The small blue ones are from a site online called "Animal Eyes- Lisa & Ed's Eyes and More"
      I've ordered from that site a few times now and they are awesome, s/h is great too. Hope that helps!
