The Art of Thread Crochet Bears
The book will introduce you to the art of miniature crocheted Teddy bears from thread. This is a relatively
new trend in bear making.
These are miniature (from 2.5" to 4") crocheted and fully jointed teddy bears made with lots of tiny crochet
stitches using a variety of threads or thin yarns. Some of them show off the crochet stitches and the ones made from mohair
or acrylic yarn can be brushed for a wonderful fuzzy look. These bears are not toys, they are great works of art for teddy
The book includes six patterns. They are the author own creations. The first two are very easy: the bears have
straight arms and legs. The next two have bent arms, and the last two are a little more complicated. Each of these patterns
will add to your knowledge and enjoyment of the art of thread teddy bears.
The patterns include complete step-by-step instructions to crochet and assemble the bears, a list of materials
and supplies needed and several photos of the bears. You should know how to crochet. The basics of crocheting are enough:
chain, single crochet, slip stitch, increase and decrease.
The book also includes the list of abbreviations and a table of steel crochet hooks equivalencies: metric, USA
