Crocheted Seamless Mother Bear Project

May 22, 2016 9 comments

This is post to help those using the seamless crochet pattern for the Mother Bear Project. I purchased the seamless crochet pattern from the MBP site. After participating in a CAL for the bears, several of us found some valuable tips to help in crocheting the seamless bears. I want to share with you all the helpful ideas and pattern tips that we want to pass along.

I love to crochet in the round without having to turn or join. So after getting the seamless crochet bear pattern, I set out to figure out a way to do just that.

Go to the official Mother Bear Site by clicking on the logo below.

So as I have stated, I wanted to crochet my bear in the round without joining or working chain 1s for each row. Here is a leg piece to show the outcome. This particular leg has just 4 rows in the bear body color and then 11 rows for the pants up to the point where you join the legs together to work the rest of the pants. This varies from the original pattern but depending on your yarn, design, and other factors, crochet as needed to obtain the size and design you desire.


Here is a leg piece to share, I end at the side of the leg and simply join a new color with a SC (single crochet) stitch and work in the round.

Mother Bear Skirt & Bloomers

If you read my last post, you know that I have been busy crocheting Mother Bears for the organization that sends teddy bears to children in foreign countries. I crocheted a Mother Bear hoodie on one teddy bear and then crocheted this girl bear with a skirt and bloomers.

This bear and her clothing were crocheted using medium weight acrylic yarn. The basic bear was crocheted using the seamless crochet bear pattern found at the Mother Bear Project site. My pattern details are a guideline for adding the skirt and bloomers but make sure you check your fit on your bear as you crochet.

I crocheted the skirt with a G (4 mm) crochet hook. Attach at back of waist on bear and follow pattern directions below. I crocheted the skirt working from the waist down and crocheted with the bear upside down as I added the skirt.

Mother Bear Hoodie

I am crocheting teddy bears for the Mother Bear Project and have some extra clothing ideas to share. I sent for the crocheted seamless bear pattern and found the pattern very easy to follow with lots of opportunities to make variations on the bear’s clothing. A group over at Ravelry is having a KAL/CAL for the Mother Bears and there are some amazing ideas being shared over there if you’d like to check it out. Here is the link to the group.


After seeing another crafter make an adorable hoodie, I knew I just had to make a bear with a hoodie too. If you knit there are instructions for the Bears in the Hood found here but I only crochet so I had to improvise and create a hoodie for my bear.

So after a little trial and error here are the pattern details for a crocheted Mother Bear hoodie.
