Regular Legs For Valentine Bear and Pom Pom Tail For Valentine Bunny


Hi everyone!

Since the release of my Valentine Bear with the heart shaped feet I've received numerous requests for regular feet so here they are! You'll need the Teddy Bear pattern here. Look for the green print friendly button at the bottom of the page. And of course you'll just leave out the legs and instead use one of the leg patterns below. I gave you 2 options for the legs. One made all one color and one made with 2 colors. The 2 colors could be coordinated with ears if you made colored ears for your bear.

There is also the option for bunny ears. If you want to make a bunny then use the bear pattern, leave off the ears and instead use this bunny ear pattern. I also left off the bear tail and added a pom pom tail. The tail is optional. Many people prefer the regular tail to a pom pom. If you'd like a pom pom I do have a video tutorial for making one right here

I am currently working on a dress for this Bunny! Check back soon for that pattern update.



Read me ~> Work in continuous rounds, do not join. Use the same yarn weight and

hook size you used for the rest of the bear body. Add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. Read the rows the same way I explain how to read them in the Bear pattern

Important: When you start to decrease the feet you might see gaps in the stitches. You can eliminate most if not all of this gap by tightening up the stitches. This works very well for me. But there is also one other way to decrease called the Invisible Decrease. I do not use this method. I personally don't like it but it's not the method's fault it's mine, lol I tried it once and it felt awkward and I didn't like the look but other people have said that it needs practice and once mastered it's a great method. So I will leave the option to you. You can decrease the way I do and just tighten up those stitches or try the inv dec. I do not have my own tutorial for the inv dec but you can search the inv dec on youtube or try this tutorial by June
Gilbank .

  2. Hi Sharon, I noticed this bunny looks pretty big.. did you use 2 strands of yarn to crochet this one? I love the tail add on, makes it even cuter than it was before. Thanks in advance!
