Crochet this miniature bear for yourself, or to give as a gift. You may use other types and sizes of thread to make Boo Bear, with a size hook that’s appropriate for the thread used. The bear in the red overalls was made with size 30 thread and a size 10 hook. He is just under 3 inches; I used punch thread and a size 10 hook for the 3-inch bear in the overalls. The bear in the green overalls was made using a sport-weight mohair yarn and a size 7 hook, and he is just under 5-inches tall. Be sure to change the size of the eyes and joint pins and disks accordingly. The pattern tells you how to joint the head with a cotter pin and disks, and thread joint the arms.

Also included is the pattern for Boo Bear’s little overalls.
