A little while ago I made a cute bunny rattle using a free pattern from Amour Fou. Now I have a nice bear version to match!

This was supposed to be a white bear, but I ran out of yarn half way through the head, so it ended up with some white pants instead.

For yarn, I used Peter Pan Baby Merino DK (affiliate link) in white, Rowan Felted Tweed (affiliate link) in Scree blue, and Jenny Watson Pure Merino DK in brown. With a 2.75 mm (C) crochet hook, my bear ended up being 15 cm (6 in) tall, excluding the ears.

The body and head are made using a free bunny rattle pattern from Amour Fou Crochet.
