Little Bear Crochets
I started crocheting in 2010, after my mother brought home a beautiful pattern book filled with amigurumi designs. She had learned to crochet as a child, but had never used the skill since. We practiced together and I made my first plushie: a horribly weird-looking cat, haha! But I was hooked~
Proudly I showed my works to my grandmother, an avid yarn-lover who had been crocheting for more than 40 years! Her enthousiasm and tips, along with many guides, books and online videos, slowly improved my skills.
In 2015 I started designing my own full size plush animals for the first time: the tall animals series. You can recognise them by their absurdly long bodies and arms. I started my own pattern company called ‘Little Bear Crochets’ and started to sell and publish them. ^^ Designing is hard work (seriously! massages wrists), but it’s great fun and it makes me happy. There are many series living in my head, and I am working hard to get them all into PDFs for everyone to enjoy.
If you like my work, don’t be shy and follow me on my social media, or say hi to me! I also really love seeing the stuffed animals you make from my patterns!
