Spring Bear CAL – Part 4

Welcome back for Part 4 of the Spring Bear Crochet Along! Today we will be tackling the body of the bear. If you missed any of the other parts, then you can find the CAL schedule and those links below. I have decided not to go live anymore unless someone posts a question or I want to show you a certain type of stitch. Please come over to Creative Snugglies Designs Facebook Community to share your photos and ask any questions you may have. I always love seeing people’s photos of their project.

Materials Needed for Part 4

You will need a G/6 4.0 mm hook, your main bear color (Color A), stitch markers, polyfil, and scissors. Just a quick reminder, I use my stitch markers for remembering which stitch is my first stitch in the round since we work in continuous rounds without joining. I also use the stitch markers to count my rounds when there are several rounds of the same amount of stitches.

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