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.
Finished bear is 20cm/8in tall.
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 bearâ€™s body is made in two halves of contrasting colour, finished off with hand embroidery. If youâ€™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.
