Using a 2.75 mm hook and DK/light worsted weight yarn the bear is approximately 20 cm long (8 inches) and 13 cm (5 inches) tall

Using a 3 mm hook and worsted weight yarn the bear is approximately 30 cm (12 inches) long and 21 cm (8.5 inches) tall.

Materials

Yarn DK/Light Worsted weight yarn (or appropriate, see note below)

Crochet hook 3 mm or appropriate

Safety eyes and nose (optional)

Stuffing

You can use any yarn and crochet hook combination that gives you good tension. Normally this would be a hook around two sizes smaller than that recommended on the yarn label. For the bear I used a 3 mm hook with approximately 120 grams of 8ply/DK acrylic yarn.

The nose is place at the tip of the crochet, just slightly above the centre of the magic ring. Eyes need to be placed between rounds 6 and 7, 5 stitches apart.
