Lollo the African Flower Bear
Hi everyone :)
I am hoping in the next weeks to re-write the pattern to include a more concise version. This was my very first pattern, and, as you can imagine, I have learned a lot since then :) I would like to be able to re-write the pattern in the current format that my other animal patterns are in…please Bear with me ;)
The pattern includes written instructions as well as crochet charts for both the African Flower Hexagon and Pentagon. If you would like a visual reference, I have step by step photo tutorials on how to make these motifs.
Here are the links to the tutorials:
ERRATA: The description on picture 30 of the Body PDF reads ”…All hexagons of Round 3 are made using a 1.75mm hook…” IT SHOULD READ, ”…are made using a 1.5mm hook…”
Please note: Updated 16-06-2012:YOU MAY USE THIS PATTERN TO MAKE FO’s FOR SALE :) . Please do not copy, distribute in any way, the actual text, illustrations, photographs, all of which are my original work. Please respect the work that has gone into this pattern :)
Please Note: I am sorry, but I won’t be accepting any echecks for payment…only Paypal (not Paypal echecks)
Lollo African Flower Bear has been made using the African Flower Hexagon crochet pattern and modified versions thereof. She was named after my youngest daughter, whose nickname is Lollo.
The bear is made without seaming, with motifs being joined to each other as you crochet.
My intention when writing this pattern was to make it possible for complete beginners to be able to make this bear, and to that end I have purposely over-explained every step needed to make Lollo, and the pattern comprises roughly 200 pages of instructions and nearly 300 photographs, explaining each step in the process. As such it is a large sized pattern and I have broken it up into separate PDFs, to make downloading easier.
I love the African Flower Hexagon pattern, and have been wanting to make something three dimensional from it, juggling motif size and shape to attain a 3D shape.
Although it may seem complicated, I have tried to make my explanations clear enough, as mentioned previously, so that even beginner crocheters can follow along :)
I have reread this pattern more times than I care to count, and have carefully checked it for errors. Please let me know if you find an error…email me at
