Scrap Yarn Bear Crochet Pattern


Go grab all these end balls of yarn and I will meet you back here with the perfect scrap yarn project.


This bear is not only ADORABLE, but a great way to use all them yarn ends up.


Scrap yarn bear is made even extra special with the initial of my niece sewn onto their chest. Personalisation of your projects can turn the special into the extra special.


If you want to start personalising your makes make sure to check out my 'Crochet Letters A-Z' pattern book where you will find the written description along with a video link on how to crochet all the letters in the alphabet.
