Peppermint the Polar Bear Ami ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Share this

I've never really truly enjoyed crocheting amigurumi creatures. Though when I made Crispen the Snowman, I fell in love! I'll admit, fur yarn is what does it for me. If there's not fur yarn involved, I really don't care to make amigurumi. The fur makes it more snuggly! I really enjoyed making this one, and 3 of us are currently fighting over him. Make your own using this polar bear crochet pattern!

When working the pattern, it may be easier to work between the stitches when using fable fur. With it hard seeing stitches, it’s easier to feel for them.
