Scarf

With crochet hook, using A, ch 5.

Row 1:  Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 4 sc’s.  Turn.

Row 2:  Ch 1, sc in each sc across – 4 sc’s.  Turn.  Rep Row 2 until piece measures 1 1/4”.  * Change to B and rep Row 2 twice.  Change to A and rep Row for 1 1/4”.  Rep from * 8 times more.  Fasten off.

Fringe:  Cut One 3” long strand of B.  Fold strand in half.  With crochet hook, draw center of strand through first st of cast-on edge of scarf forming a loop.  Pull ends of fringe through this loop.  In this manner, make 4 fringes evenly spaced along cast-on and bound-off edges of scarf.  Trim fringe to even off if necessary. 


Finishing

Sew back and front of bear together, leaving ears and bound-off sts at top of head open for stuffing.  Stuff legs and arms first, making them quite firm.  Stuff body next, being sure to stuff lightly so that bear is huggable.  Stuff muzzle next, then head.  This makes the muzzle stand out.  Sew bound-off sts and ears tog.  Embroider the face with embroidery floss as in photo.  Tie scarf around neck as in photo.

Optional:  If desired, you may work running sts around the muzzle with matching yarn and pull up slightly for more definition.  You may also sew across the base of ears and around curve of ear to give the ear more shape.
