Bentley the Bear is a crochet amigurumi pattern by Stacey Trock. This particular pattern is part of her Ami Club CAL. You can find more information about her patterns and ami club at her website…FRESHSTITCHES.The start of Bentley’s arms.
Bentley’s two arms.
The first leg is worked up by itself.
When you are finished with the 2nd leg, you attach it to the 1st leg.
Here is a picture once the two legs are attached together. There will be a small space in the middle that you just sew up so it looks like one piece.
Then you work up from the legs and start to form the body. When you reach the spot where the arms go, you just crochet them into the sides. It makes for a much cleaner look than adding them on later.
At this point I have worked up to the head.
Once I finished up the head, I added on the ears.
I used place holders to mark the spot where I would be adding the nose and snout.
Here is a cute picture of the face once I attached the nose/snout and added the eyes. I decided to go with brown eyes for this bear.
The completed bear.
I had so much fun making the first bear, that I decided to make a 2nd one. I really wanted this one to have blue eyes.
You will notice that my bears are 2 different sizes. This is what will happen when you use different size hooks. I used a size 4/G hook for the pink bear and a size 5/H hook for the brown one.
