Remember Me Christmas Bears,
This pattern is for the hat and the scarf that will fit the Bears in this pattern. The only difference is these Christmas Bears were made with Red Heart Super Saver yarn and a 4.0 mm (G) hook. And leave off the toes.. or add them if you want to :)
Please note that there are no written instructions for the snowflake on the red bear's foot. I used embroidery thread to do it. I looked for the easiest snowflake image online that I could find and did my best to make it look like that image. It was all trial and error. I have included some tips on how to embroider an initial in the video tutorial. And you can always leave off the snowflake, it's optional.

Read me ~> Work in continuous rounds, do not join. If you crochet more on the loose side then use a smaller hook so you don't get gaps and stuffing showing through the stitches. Add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. I just use a short length of yarn and pull it through the last stitch I put in at the end of every row.
Read me ~> How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.
Red Heart Super Saver in Cherry Red
I used Bernat On the Fringe Yarn in White for the trim but you can use whatever you'd like to use. There's lots of yarn used for trim that you can choose from.
4.0 mm hook *use a smaller hook if you see gaps in your stitches
blunt end yarn needle for weaving in the ends
st = stitch
