Teddy in a Tee – With pattern!

Last week I found some really nice thick acrylic yarn in a local bargain store, and thought it would be perfect for making amigurumi. Then I got it home and couldn’t find the perfect pattern. So I just started crocheting and making it up as a went along! Don’t worry, I remembered to take notes so I could share with you all! ^_^

If you have never made an amigurumi before, don’t worry it’s easy. This pattern is worked in continuous spirals. Use stitch markers to mark the start of each round in case you lose count.

The pattern is in american terms.

And one last note before I start, please do not reproduce this pattern without my permission, claim it as your own, sell it etc.


My yarn was DK, and I used a 3.5mm hook.

Start with your main colour, and make a magic loop. Now you are ready to start your head.


R1 (round one): sc 6 into the loop. Pull tight. All pieces begin this way hereafter.

R2: 2sc into each stitch around.   (12)

R3: *sc, 2sc into 1 st* Repeat *to* around. (18 )

R4: *sc in first 2 sts, 2sc into 1* Rep from * to * around. (24)

R5: *sc in first 3 sts, 2sc in to next st* repeat from * to * (30)

  1. He’s so cute!! And he is really tempting me to try amigurumi. I look forward to seeing what you create next. 🙂
    (I hope this isn’t a double comment, my dsl dropped and I don’t think my previous comment got through, so here I am again.)

    • Hi Rebekah,
      As stated at the start of the pattern, I released this pattern for free but do not wish it to be used for commercial purposes. Thanks.

  2. hi tara
    i had a go at your teddy, my first attempt at amigurumi and it was fantastic! the pattern is great, you have a real knack for making it easy to understand – nothing worse than not being able to read a pattern! i changed mine to have a pink tee but my daughters have named ‘him’ clive so he’s a bit of a snab – sensative new age bear! thanks again!

  3. I was curious, how big is the finished bear? The pictures don’t really give an idea of scale. Is this snuggle size or decoration size?

    • From head to bottom he was about 12cm. I gave him away as a gift so unfortunately I can’t measure him. But he was small enough to sit on the palm of your hand.

  4. I am making a ton of hats for charity and would love to make some of these teddies for the kids…do you have any objections?
