Striped Mother Bears

Posted on April 12, 2020

The Mother Bear Project is featuring striped bears for April. With the extra time I have this month with the stay at home order due to the Coronavirus, I crocheted two mother bears.
Mother Bear
This bear has a striped skirt that I crocheted using this bear skirt pattern. My bears are crocheted seamless without joining and done in rounds. This bear was done in BLO (back loop only) single crochet except for the head. I have experimented and think the head looks better crocheted through both loops in single crochet.

BLO Striped Mother Bear
Now here is a striped bare bear crocheted using Red Heart Stripe yarn in colorway Parrot Stripe. This little guy was crocheted in BLO for the entire bear. As you can see his head appears smaller and not a nice looking as the first bear. I think if I added more stitches the head would look better in BLO so I may try that next time.

If you are new to the Mother Bear Project, you can find the Ravelry group here. The Mother Bear Project is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing comfort and hope to children, primarily those affected by HIV/AIDS and by giving them a gift of love in a handmade teddy bear.

Come join in the bear-making if you are interested and have extra time on your hands these days. The Mother Bear Project always needs more crafters and bears for the children.
