Thing 175

Before we dive into Day 2 of Crocheted Bear Awareness Week I want to show a quick follow-up to Fulfilled Promises Week.

I asked Martina to get a shot of her friends with their animals, and they pulled her into the shot as well.




Aww. That makes it worth it. Apparently Panda girl and Horse girl caused no end of trouble with the animals in class.

But back to bears.

Today’s bear is the same pattern as yesterday but with a completely different yarn. Esther had a long strand of corking she made with super chunky rainbow variegated wool a year or two ago. She’s mostly used it to hang stuff off the balcony. However, she was ready to part with the rope, especially after I promised to convert it into a bear.

Since the yarn is so thick I crocheted with a 5mm hook. By skipping one row in his midsection I had just enough yarn to finish the bear and a tiny scrap over for a jaunty bow.

He towers over yesterday’s bear.

I think he’s groovy.
