I am so excited it is the first day for the Spring Teddy Bear Crochet Along! Thank you for joining me. Today, we will be starting by making the head of the teddy bear. Make sure you join me in Creative Snugglies Designs Facebook Community for all the fun today! I will be going live at 2 pm PST so I hope you can join me. Please come there to share your photos as we crochet along together. Feel free to ask any questions you may have.

A Crochet Pattern by: Christina Ryan

Today you will only need a G hook, the main color of your teddy bear in Worsted Weight Size 4 yarn, safety eyes if using them, polyfil, yarn needle, and stitch markers. I use the stitch markers to know where my first stitch is in the round since I do not join my rounds.

Head Instructions: Made in Continuous Rounds

Rnd 1:  Using G Hook and Color A, create MC; 6 SC in MC.  (6 sts)

Rnd 2:  2 SC in each st around.  (12 sts)

Rnd 3:  *SC in the next st; 2 SC in the next st.*  Repeat around.  (18 sts)

Rnd 5:  *SC in the next 3 sts; 2 SC in the next st.*  Repeat around.  (30 sts)
