I found this TLC Heathers (Nutmeg) yarn in my stash, and it talked to me and said that it wanted to be a bear. So I chose this Summer Bear pattern for the free crochet pattern this Friday. The pattern tells you to hold two strands of yarn together, and I chose to only hold one strand, so it made my bear smaller.
Little did I know, I was creating a hybrid (as my son calls it)! We think my bear looks like a cross between a dog, a bear, and a gremlin. Consequently, her name is Darla “Dearlin” (Dog, Bear, Gremlin). She’s so ugly, she’s "adorkable."
Have fun making your bears. I can’t wait to see how yours turn out.
