The star-spangled bow tie on this adorable crocheted bear reflects his American heritage. Made popular during the term of President Theodore Roosevelt, the teddy bear has become an American favorite. For an old-fashioned look, we gave our bear an embroidered face and used wooden buttons to accent his movable arms and legs. What a lovable, huggable bear! It is crocheted using two strands of worsted weight yarn and a size H (5.00 mm) hook.

2 strands of yarn held together
polyester stuffing
Small amount of black yearn
4 flat buttons
