Crochet Bear Applique Written Pattern
Worsted weight yarn in dark brown
The applique will be worked in rows and then around. There will be no fastening off until the end although I do try to break up/explain each part that is being made along the way.
Abbreviations (US terms)
Ch = chain, sc = single crochet, hdc = half double crochet, dc = double crochet, st = stitch, sl st= slip stitch
Row 1: Ch 14, hdc in 2nd ch from hook and in each st across, turn (13)
Row 2-3: Chain 1, hdc in each st across, turn (13)
That completes the body of the bear and we will start to work on the legs. Do not fasten off.
Back Legs [Will be worked into the first 3 stitches on the main body]
Row 1: Ch 1, sc in the next 3 st, turn (3)
Row 2-4: Ch 1, sc across, turn (3)
Row 5: Chain 1, sc across, ch 2, dc in same space as last sc (4)
Do no turn your work, keep working around and up the leg. Slip stitch until you get back to the body. The last slip stitch should be in the 3rd stitch on the main body.
Then work the following in stitches 4-8 on the main body:
Belly of bear
Sl st, sc in next 3 st, sl st in next st
Front Leg (This will be worked into the 9-10 stitch of the main body.)
Row 1: sc in next 2 st, ch 1, turn
Row 2-4: Ch 1, sc across, turn (2)
Row 5: Ch 1, sc across, ch 1, dc in same space as last sc
Sc in next space up the leg, then slip stitch up the leg until you get back to the body. The last slip stitch will be in the 10th stitch on the main body.
Final Front Leg (This will be worked in stitches 11-13 on the main body.)
Row 1: sc in next 3 st, turn
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in next 2 st, turn
Row 3-4: Repeat row 2
Row 5: Ch 1, sc in next 2 st, ch 2, dc same space as last sc
Keep working up the leg.
Sc in next st and sl st until there are 4 spaces left on the side of the body.

Row 1: Ch 1, sc in next 4 sp, turn
Row 2-4: Ch 1, sc across, turn (4)
Row 5: Ch 2, dc in next st, sc in next 2 st, 2sc in next st
Keep working around to form the top of the head and the top of the body.
(sc, ch 3, sc) all in next space, sl st in next 2 spaces ( you should now be back onto the main body) sl st in next 2 spaces, sc in next 3 spaces, sl st in next 5 spaces, sc in next space, hdc in next space, 3dc in next space (last stitch on top of the body – keep working around) dc in next space, hdc in next space, sc in next 3 spaces, sl st until you reach the bottom of the back feet.
