I made this in June. Never believed I would make a giant toy as the size have never been a goal for me.
The idea of making something that big isn`t mine. It`s an order from another Estonian home and craft magazine and the pattern will be published in the near months. I have already started the English version. They wanted a really big crochet teddy bear. At first I was a little scared. I know making big toys is complicated. It takes a huge amount of time and it`s hard to get the proportions right. On the other side I felt excitement of the opportunity to make something totally new.
I was most worried about the legs, but surprisingly struggled with the body. If I remember correctly I made four versions of it which means thousands of stitches…
He is my first toy with crocheted eyes. I totally enjoy the result!
Haven`t given him a name yet but did some measuring though. Turns out he is about 65 cm (25.5 inches) in height and about 1 kg (2.2 pounds) in weight.
I didn`t have any problems with finding models to pose with him. He`s simpy so cute, anyone would like to hug him :)
