Care Bear Pattern

I have had a lot of requests for the pattern for the Care Bear I made at the beginning of the year. I looked in my notes and found a rough pattern. Please note this pattern is quite old, I made this bear before I started writing down my patterns in the rounds. If I get a chance to make another Bear I will write up a pattern in proper rounds. Also this pattern does not include the hat.

3.5mm Crochet Hook
8mm Safety Eyes
Worsted Yarn in the colors you choose for your Bear. I used Red Heart Super Save in White and Aruba Sea
Scissors
Needle
Crochet Thread, or embroidery floss for your mouth

    1. Hello Laura,

      Is it flaring out for you around his cheeks right before you start decreasing for the neck? Because it will flare out in that area a bit before you start making the neck.
