You can use any similar DK weight yarn; try cotton for firm texture or wool-based yarns for a softer toy.
Work 10dc and 11 rows to measure 5 x 5cm/2 x 2in using 4mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.

A crochet addict, Irene loves experimenting with shapes and textures, bringing cute and quirky characters to life with the help of yarn and hook!

The bear’s body is made in two halves of contrasting colour, finished off with hand embroidery. If you’re adding stripes you could try making rows of crocheted chain stitches with the hook through the fabric rather than using traditional chain stitch embroidery.
