Briggs The Bear

Briggs The Bear loves to travel and see the world through your eyes. Briggs fits perfectly in your pocket to keep you company on your endeavors.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner

The pattern is written in U.S. crochet terms, complete with clear instructions and  pictures to help you along the way. Briggs The Bear is crocheted in continuous spirals without joining the rounds. I suggest using a stitch marker or different color yarn to keep track of each round. Briggs The Bear is crocheted in worsted weight yarn and is approximately 5 inches tall.  Be aware that the final size may vary depending on the yarn and hook size used. Gauge is not particularly important, just be consistent with the tension you are using. And most importantly, have fun!

Briggs The Bear Pattern Example

6 sc into a Magic Circle  {6 sts}
R1 starts with 6 single crochet in a magic circle
Alternate way to begin:
chain 2, sc 6 times in 2nd chain from hook  {6 sts}

(inc, sc in next 2 sts) 2 times {8 sts}
(2 single crochets into a stitch, then single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches) – repeat that sequence a total of 2 times for a total of 8 stitches

(dec, sc in next 2 sts) 6 times {18 sts}
(join 2 single crochets into 1, and then single crochet in next 2 stitches) – repeat that sequence a total of 6 times for a total of 18 stitches

If a round states to work in the back loop only, go back to working through both loops after that Round, unless specified.

Briggs The Bear Full Pattern

  • Using color brown
  • Note before you begin: Don't pull the magic circle tight. The safety nose will be placed in the middle of the magic circle, later in the pattern.
  • R1: 3 sc into a magic circle {3 sts}

    Alternate way to begin: chain 2, sc 3 times in 2nd chain from hook {3 sts}

  • R2: (inc) 3 times {6 sts}
  • R3: (inc, sc in next st) 3 times {9 sts}
  • R4: (inc, sc in next 2 sts) 3 times {12 sts}
  • Do a seamless join on an open piece:
  • Cut the working yarn, leaving a tail. Pull the yarn through the last stitch (do not fasten off).
  • Thread the remaining yarn into a yarn needle and insert the needle under both loops of the stitch to the left of the last stitch - from outside to inside.
  • Move back to the stitch to the right (the last crocheted stitch). Insert the needle through the middle of the V from outside to inside.
  • Faux stitch created for a seamless look.
  • Insert a 18mm safety nose in the center of the muzzle and secure the nose.
  • Set aside until assembly.
