What you'll need:
Of course you'll need the Basic body pattern found here
Red Heart
Comfort yarn in any color of your choice

Use the same hook size you used for the body
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors
you can use felt, buttons, yarn or paint eyes on. I used 7.5mm safety eyes for the bunny, yarn for the bear and 15mm solid buttons that I painted for the frog.
Video tutorial  here
Bear Ears:
1) magic circle or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)

4) 1sc in each st for 1 row
5) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (12)
6) 1sc in next 2st then 2tog (9)
sl st next st and f/o leaving a tail for sewing


Bear Muzzle:

1) magic circle or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 1sc then 2sc in next st (9)
sl st next st and f/o. Whip stitch a nose before sewing  muzzle to the head.
I hot glued the muzzle onto the face which works great for me. If you choose to do the same, make sure to not add so much glue that it oozes out onto the face because you won't be able to get the glue off.

The yarn eyes are wrapped around the 7th row with 5 visible stitch holes between them. I then dabbed white paint on them to give the eyes a bit of life. works great!

Bear Tail: just add in whip stitches in the back where you think a tail should go. Make the tail as big or as little as you want. I wrapped from side to side first then finished off the tail by wrapping over that bundle of wrappings up and down. Knot off when done and hide yarn tails inside the body.

Bunny Ears:
1) magic circle
or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)
4) 1sc in each st for 1 row
5) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (12)
6) 1sc in each st for 1 row
7) 1sc in next 4st then 2tog (10)
8-9) 1sc in each st for 2 rows
10) 2tog then 1sc in next 8st (9)
11) 1sc in each st for 1 row
sl st next st and f/o. Do not stuff.


Pom Pom Tail:
make a small pom pom using yarn and your 2 fingers. If you don't know how to make a pom pom please view the video.


If you choose safety eyes, those are in between the 7th and 8th row. Again, you can use yarn, buttons, felt or paint.



Frog Eyes (the part that holds the eyes):

1) magic circle
or an adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc in next 3st then 2sc in next st (15)
4-5) 1sc in each st for 2 rows

6) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (12)
sl st next st and f/o leaving a tail for sewing.
Choose what you want for the eyes. I chose solid and slightly rounded buttons. I went over the surface of the buttons with an emery board so paint would stick better then painted them white and dabbed in a bit of black. Covered that with a clear coat of nail polish. You can sew the button to the eye part before you sew the eye part to the head. OR hot glue it in place but don't glue it in until you've sewn the eye part in place first. The mouth is a strand of red yarn with the corners in between the 7th and 8th row with 2 visible stitch holes between them and the smile was tacked down between the 8th and 9th row.

  2. I love your little bits patterns. I've saved them to my computer until I have time to make them. Like you, I think I like the new elephant the best. Thanks so much for these. You're a very talented crocheter.
