I took two of my favorite patterns from Yarnspirations.com and created this Pumpkin Bear! A super cute seasonal project that you can make easily in one day. I started with the Valentine Bear pattern and created all the pieces except for the body. Then I took the Caron Harvest Pumpkin pattern and made the medium size pumpkin (although if I were to do it over again I think I would use the small size) and used it for the bear body. Easy and cute! I did stuff all the pieces pretty heavily so my pumpkin bear is on the larger side, measuring approximately 10 x 10 inches.
I’m using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn for this project in colors Carrot and Cafe Latte. I am also using a size H crochet hook. The patterns call for different yarn (Bernat Velvet & Caron Simply Soft) so I would recommend picking one type of yarn (preferably worsted weight) to crochet your bear with.

One of my favorite things to do is to repurpose patterns and this is a great example of something you can make with free existing patterns! Hope you like the Pumpkin Bear! Let me know if you make it by tagging me on social media @RepeatCrafterMe or #RepeatCrafterMe

I love your pumpkin bear. It looks so cute. I made the valentine bear and like it but am having trouble with the head flopping forward. Is there a trick to make this not happen? I felt the pattern was not clear exactly how to join the arms and head.
Get a 3/4 inch dowel and place into body and head after stiffing. Sew in place. (Not too thick a dowel)

Get email free crochet patterns. Your crochet pumpkin bear was listed. When I tried to get the pattern there was no link to get it. Could you please email the pattern to me? I would like to make one for each of my 2 greatgrandsons.
THANX, JL Neal
