Amigurumi Winter Bear – AmigurumiWizard crochet pattern

November 12, 2012 by Peter

As with my previous pattern I posted here on my blog, it’s a bit early for winter themed Amigurumi, although it’s time to start crocheting those wintery critters if you want to gift them to family and friends when winter arrives. :)

This Winter Bear is so cute with his big head and small hat. :)
You can find this picture in this months “Let’s Get Crafting” magazine in the UK, in the top 3 Amigurumi toys they love. :)
It’s possible you came here because you saw it in the magazine, and now you question where you can buy the pattern…

    Hi
    I read about your post to enlarge a pattern for a crochet pear by 2.5 times
    Can you please explain to me how to do that?
    Did you double the starting sts at the begin?
    Thank you for your help

      Hi Lizzie,

      The pear was a bit more dificult to do then the apple, but it worked out.
      You multiply the “result”. So for example, if the biggest part of the pattern (you normaly work op from 6 sts to 12, 18, 24, 30 and so on) is 30, you want to get to about 75 sts. But it’s the best to keep in the same math (36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72 or 78, you choose :-)

      Then, with most patterns, you have to keep crocheting the biggest part (30 sts from the original pattern) for example 6 rows. Multiply that with 2,5 too! And go on with this for the rest of the pattern.
      Keep in mind you should just use your own estimate how it should look, and stop adding rows if you think it’s fine. :)

      Good luck, and please let me know if I can help you :)
