Blue Bear friends you can make

My dear friends. Last week I shared Blue Bear pattern. Bears are classics and are suitable for big and small, young and old…

This week wanted to show you what you can make out of one pattern you like or find easy; will show you on Blue Bear pattern example, but in same manner you can play and make different animals from any pattern you like or find easy to make.

I have made just few examples, but possibilities are endless. Will show you how to make a cat, dog, bunny and koala.

Head, body, arms and legs are done all the same as in Blue Bear pattern. Ears and noses are changed in order to make different animal expressions.

For each animal will give you instructions on how to make. If you will wish to make some other animal that is not listed here and you don’t know how to do it, let me know and will try to help you out.

Let us start with the kitten!

As mentioned, from the Blue Bear pattern, I have added new ears and have made different nose base.


Ears (make2)

R1 sc4 in magic ring

R2 inc1, sc1, inc1, sc1 (6sts)

R3 *inc1, sc1* x3 (9 sts)

R4 *inc1, sc2* x3 (12 sts)

R5 *inc1, sc3* x3 (15 sts)

R6 *inc1, sc4* x3 (18 sts)

R7 *inc1, sc5* x3 (21 sts)

R8-R9 sc21 sts

R10 *dec1, sc5* x3 (18sts)

tie off and leave long end for sewing the ears later


Nose base

R1 sc6 in magic ring

R2 inc6 (12 sts)

R3 sc12 sts

tie off. Make another circle the same way. Connect both circles with one stitch and with black yarn sew the nose and mouth on.

Next one is little koala

Koala ears (make2)

R1 sc6 in magic ring

R2 inc6 (12 sts)

R3 *inc1, sc1* x6 (18 sts)

R4 *inc1, sc2* x6 (24 sts)

R5 *inc1, sc3* x6 (30 sts)

R6-R7 sc30 sts

R8 *dec1, sc3* x6 (24 sts)

R9 *dec1, sc2* x6 (18 sts)

Tie off and leave long end for sewing the ears later


I have made the nose base, but  it is not necessary at all. You can sew the big black nose right on the head. If you want to make the nose same way I did, make a nose base this way:


R1 sc4, 3sc in on st, sc3, 2sc in one st (12 sts)

R2 inc1, sc3, inc3, sc3, inc2 (18 sts)

tie off leaving long end for sewing the nose later.

For making bunny, again, we will change the ears. Nose I have used same as made for the kitten.

Bunny ears (make2)

R1 sc 6 in magic ring

R2 sc6 sts

R3 inc6 (12 sts)

R4 sc12 sts

R5 *inc1, sc1* x6 (18sts)

R6 sc18 sts

R7 *inc1, sc2* x6 (24 sts)

R8-R12  sc24 sts

R13 *dec1, sc2* x6 (18 sts)

R14-R16 sc18 sts

R17 *dec1, sc1* x6 (12 sts)

R18-R23 sc12 sts

Tie off and leave long end for sewing the ears later.


And the last one is little puppy

Bear pets - 7Bear pets - 8

Little puppy is made out of bunny ears and kitty nose. You can use kitten ears as well. You can sew hem on the sides pointing down, or more up on top of the head (pointing up). It is really the way you like more.

Like I mentioned earlier, possibilities are really endless. You can make a mouse, elephant, monkey, fox…

I hope you have enjoyed this post. Also hope I gave you something to think about when starting on next project. You should remember one thing, there is anything you can’t do!  😉

Fingers crossed that by next week my new doll will be done.

Wish you all great end of the week and happy relaxing weekend!
