Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each hdc (20 hdc)
Rnd 3: work 1 hdc in each hdc.
Find off leaving 8" tail of yarn.
I also stitched a line under the bears nose, in brown, and then added a line on each side of that for a smile. (Optional)
with a little
or wool batting. Stitch onto face where shown in photo.
Eyes - using white
Turn and sc down one side. Then 3 sc in top ch and continue in sc back down the other side of the chain. End off. Make 2. Add a couple of sts of black yarn for inside of eye.
Stitch onto face as shown - sideways.
color scrap you wish to use (You can make the bow for the bears head if
it is for a girl, or place at his neck, for a boy.)
Going through 2 hdc at top of hat, thread the 'thread' through. Now tie into a bow.
Or do the same at the neck.
