Square 99 (Bear Face)

Wednesday, May 27

A bear face square?? Cute but…

This will probably be the only square in my 101 Crochet Squares book that I won’t complete. Not that I don’t like it. I LOVE IT!! But unless I make about 49 more, what will I do with it.

So… here’s my solution. Make the bear faces and put them on other things. Like this little girl’s purse I created just to put this on.

I have 2 more faces started. They all need eyes and a mouth.

I have lots of ideas for these bears. Attach a strand of “something” and make into a necklace. Dangle from a key chain. Put on the front of a hat. Add a bunch together to make a garland. Would look cute hanging on the wall in a child’s room.

Yarn used:
Lion Brand 100% cotton in Espresso (dark brown) & Cloves (medium brown).

Bear, 3 1/4″ not including the ears
Purse, 6″ by 6 1/2″
Strap, 29″ (ch 101 to start)

Go here for pattern instructions.

101 Crochet Squares is by Jean Leinhauser, American School of Needlework, published 1996, ISBN 978-0-88195-715-0.

    Yes, that square has “child” written all over it. Definitely would be good for a child’s afghan, etc.
