It’s so “Beary” Cute!! This Baby Bear Crochet Character Sweater is hot off my hook! I couldn’t resist the cuteness when I spotted this crochet pattern in the newest Yarnspirations Lookbook: Baby’s Day Out. Just as its title suggests, this particular Lookbook is filled with 13 knit and crochet projects for baby! Sweet clothing items, adorable hats, and much more! CHECK IT OUT HERE. All the patterns are FREE!
Did I mention that the Bear Sweater only took me one evening to crochet?! Yes, it is super simple and works from top to bottom in one piece! Plus there are so many color combos you could choose from. You will use Bernat Softee Baby Yarn which comes in 35 shades! I love the softness of this yarn which is the best for baby’s sensitive skin. It’s also certified and approved according to the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification. This means it has been tested for over 300 harmful substances! AND it’s machine washable!
The picture below shows the main body of the piece completed. You will attache the yarn at the armholes to crochet the sleeves!
It’s completely gender neutral and you could even leave off the bear embellishments if you want. I know some of you will be nervous about attaching buttons for the eyes. You could crochet circles for the eyes or like I mentioned, leave the accents off and you have yourself a cute striped sweater 🙂 I have visions of one of you making this sweater for twins! Pink and Blue? Purple and Turquoise? Possibilities are endless!
There is a Kitty Character Sweater version as well among so many other patterns that I know you will want to get on your project list!
