Mother Bear Flower Skirt

Posted on April 2, 2019

Here is a new Mother Bear idea that I wanted to share. Add a flower skirt to your bear. I crocheted this Mother Bear body all in BLO and added this skirt to finish off my bear. The head is crocheted in both loops.

This bear was crocheted using Red Heart yarn in a Flamenco stripe skein to crochet the Mother Bear. Then I added a skirt around the waist using some plum Love This Cotton yarn. I had just a small piece of the Flamenco stripe yarn left in pink so used that for the reverse SC trim around the bottom of the skirt.

Directions for skirt:

Starting at back of bear for attaching row, single crochet (SC) around the waist of the bear to start the skirt and join to beginning. *Ch 2 and working in the round and without turning, work 1 Double Crochet (DC) in next stitch then 2 DC in next stitch*. Repeat around and join with slip stitch to top of chain 2.

Rows 2-6 of DC
Ch 2, DC in each stitch around and join.

Trim row
Work reverse SC or crab stitch around for the trim row. Join and finish off.

Skirt is 2.75” long with 5 rows of DC and one row of trim.

Flower: SC 11 sts into magic circle. Sc in 1st st, Ch2, 2DC in same st, Sk one st, and sl into next. Ch2, 2DC in same st, repeat around and join. Leave long tail and stitch to front of skirt as shown.

Here is a closeup of the skirt with a flower added for a bit of a splash.
