Polly the Bear
Crochet terms: US terms
Level: beginner / intermediate The body and head are crocheted in one detail, you don’t need to sew the head to the body.
Sport or DK Yarn of two colours on your choice. Colour # 1 – colour of the body (about 70 m/76 yds). Colour # 2 – colour of the clothes (about 40 m/43 yds). I usually use or Drops Nord, or Drops Baby Merino or Drops Alpaca (the size of the toy made with this yarn is about 9 cm = 3,5 inches). If you use YarnArt Jeans, Alize Cotton Gold or Drops Safran the size of the toy made with this yarn is about 11 cm (=4,3 inches).
Hook: Clover 1,5 or 1,75. You also will need: Stuffing (polyfill) Toys eyes (beeds, safety eyes) 5 mm or 6 mm (depends on the final size of the toy). Yarn for embroidering the nose (for example, Vita Pelican, YarnArt Iris, YarnArt Canarias). Yarn needle, sewing needle, scissors, pins. Velcro tape if you use some fluffy yarn.
The gauge isn’t very important.
