Meet Tod and Dot, a pair of bears! Tod is tall and Dot is…well, a bit like a dot. When using worsted weight yarn, Tod measures approximately 8.5 inches (21.5 cm) tall and Dot is about 6.5 inches (16.5 cm) tall.

The pattern includes detailed instructions and step-by-step photos, plus you can contact me along the way to ask any questions.

This is an intermediate level pattern because of the seamless way the legs and arms are attached (for which I give detailed instructions!), otherwise it is an easy pattern.

The pattern involves starting with a magic ring or a chain, single crochet, slip stitches, increasing, decreasing, attaching pieces, and working through back loop only.

Materials you will need:

  • E US (3.5 mm) hook
  • worsted weight yarn approximately: 97 yds (88 m) for Tod, 89 yds (81 m) for Dot
  • yarn/tapestry needle
  • removable stitch markers
  • four 12 mm plastic safety eyes
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
