The Crochet Bear

I come from a family of knitters and I think the gene missed me out I have the most clumpy hands imaginable, I cannot grip the wool and end up with big holes.
I remember my Nan trying to teach me how to knit and  crochet when I was about 14 and giving up, Nan had the patience of a saint and that's how bad I am.
So after much ohhing at Sarah's wonderful crochet creations I asked (warned) her if she could show me, and she did, It took me around 4 hours to "get" it and now I'm up and running.

This is my first Crochet creation a bear for Son's Christmas stocking



He is just a basic long tube stitched together on the sides and the same tubes for his arms and legs, I shaped his ears by stitching a ridge at the top and poked the ears out.

Thanks for popping by Jo xx

Well done you! I'm desperate to learn to crochet, but no one seems able to teach me cos I'm a leftie! I can knit for England, but crochet always feels so awkward :(

Love this little bear, bet he will be cherished forever!
