I’ve got a cute crochet square for your winter project to-do list! This polar bear square won’t take you long to whip up and you can embellish more or less to your liking. Start with a basic single crochet square and then add the face. How cute are those little paws and that fringed scarf?! I decided that I need to make more animal themed squares so they can all be joined together.. which means I will be hosting another year long crochet-along! I am still working out the details of how I am going to do the monthly animal squares but stay tuned for more. In the meantime, feel free to get started on this polar bear!
– Red Heart Super Saver in White, Dusty Gray, and Turqua, and a bit of black

Polar Bear Square Pattern:
First let’s make the Square:
With white yarn
Chain 21, SC in second chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, chain 1, turn
Row 2-23: SC in each stitch across, chain 1, turn
now continue making a SC in the 3 sides (2 Chains in each corner)
join in gray, fasten off white, SC in each stitch all the way around 4 sides making 2 SC in each corner.
Fasten off weave in ends.
Note: It’s a good idea to measure your square so you know it is in fact square after row 23. Add more or less rows to accommodate if needed. We all crochet with a different tension so size can vary.
Ears (make 2):
with white yarn
Magic Ring, chain 1 and make 6 SC in ring, do not join, chain 1, turn
Row 2: 2 SC in each stitch across, fasten off leaving long tail.
Stitch onto top two corners of square.
with gray yarn
magic ring, chain 2 and making 8 DC + 4 HDC, join to first DC, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around, join, fasten off leaving long tail
Stitch on nose with black yarn and tapestry needle or attach a safety nose and then sew snout onto square in the middle about 6 rows down from top.
with turquoise blue yarn
Chain 24, DC in 4th chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, chain 3 and slip stitch to join to the last chain, fasten off leaving long tail.
small Scarf piece:
Chain 13, DC in 4th chain from hook and the rest of the way down chain, fasten off leaving long tail. In last DC, attach a few strands of yarn to make “tassels”.
The small scarf piece will overlap the long scarf in the middle.
Feet (make 2) :
starting with gray yarn
magic ring, chain 1 and make 12 SC, join to first SC with white yarn
Round 2: 2 SC in first 7 stitches, 2 DC in last 5 stitches, fasten off leaving long tail.
Optional: Stitch on little toes with a strand of gray yarn and tapestry needle.
Stitch feet on to bottom corners of square.
Don’t forget to stitch on eyes! (I show you how in the video tutorial below)
I made a video tutorial! Crochet a polar bear square step-by-step with me:
Yes, the backside of your square will be messy. My idea is to make two squares and stitch them together back-to-back but I also like the idea of adding fleece fabric to the back. I am working on some solutions so that when this is a larger blanket (or pillow or scarf), it will be beautiful on both sides!
I hope you are excited for more Animal Crochet Squares!

your post is great
Thank you for this CAL and pattern. Love your work. I have also been working on Bones from your Tuna and Bones. That is definitely been a learning experience but I do appreciate everything your are teaching.
I apologize in advance for the lengthiness. This polar bear square is adorable. I am having a difficult time with two items so I can not even get to the embellishments yet. I am on my third attempt with the square. I have watched the tutorial video up to the gray border and still can not resolve my issues. I know this is rather simple and regular steps but I just can’t get it to look right either way I do it.
My first issue is the corners for the white border. It appears in the first corner after the chain two you go into the same stitch to go down the side. That is great, however, on the third corner it appears you do not. I don’t see it specified in the instructions or mentioned in the video and this is one of my difficulties.
My second item is the bottom white border stitch. Is it in the first row or in the chain? It appears to be in the chain and you mention it in the video but it seems like it should be the row and not in the chain. It does make a difference from what I can see. I just need some clarification so I can complete the square and move on to the embellishments then to the second square.
Thank you for any clarification you can give.
