Free pattern for a small, sitting teddy bear
 

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn – approx. 120 yards brown, scrap amount of tan.
(I used Sugar n’ Cream cotton yarn in the colors Warm Brown and Jute for my teddy)
– Suggested hook size: 3.25mm (D)
– 2 x 6mm safety eyes 
– Black embroidery floss

My bear measures approximately 3.75” tall when made with the above materials. 

You can use any weight yarn or thread that you are comfortable using. You do not need to use what I used for my bunny, just adjust your hook size accordingly.
