Mini Paddington Bear PDF Amigurumi Free Crochet Pattern (3)

Hello dear friends. Paddington Bear is a fictional character in children’s literature. First introduced on 13 October 1958, it has appeared in more than twenty books written by British author Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum and other artists. Today we will crochet Paddington bear amigurumi. Pretty cute pattern. I can say that the teddy bear itself is very easy to make and is at the beginner level. However, the making of the amigurumi jacket is quite detailed and difficult. One of the biggest reasons for this is that such clothes are quite small.

Today we are adding a new amigurumi pattern to the teddy bear patterns. One of the most beautiful features of this pattern is that it is on your clothes. Recently, amigurumi clothes have started to attract a lot of attention. Now let’s crochet the Paddington bear amigurumi.

Cut and secure the thread, weave in the ends inside the fabric.

Jacket

Blue yarn, crochet hook size 2 mm. In the following description of the jacket, R is 3 sc in 1 stitch (R means raglan). The jacket is crocheted in turning rows, it means that you need to make 1 ch and turn the work in the end of each row.
1– make 27 ch (the chain should be equal to the circumference of the toy’s neck + 3-4 stitches on each side of the chain to create a wrap over + 1 turning chain), then work from the second stitch from the hook: 26 sc.
Then you need to divide the resulting length into 4 parts: front, the first sleeve, back, the second sleeve, front + 4 stitches for raglan. I got it like this: 5 stitches (front), raglan (1 stitch), 3 stitches (first sleeve), raglan (1 stitch), 6 stitches (back), raglan (1 stitch), 3 stitches (second sleeve), raglan (1 stitch), 5 stitches (front). To determine the number of stitches, simply attach the chain to the toy and measure how many stitches you need for the sleeve and for the back. The remaining stitches will go to the front (remember to set aside 4 raglan stitches). Also, do not forget that the jacket must be with a wrap over.
Next, I will give a description for my parameters, and you should focus on your calculations. The bottom line is simple – each time a raglan (3 sc in 1 stitch) must be crocheted into the stitch before the beginning of the sleeve and into the stitch immediately after the sleeve.
2 – 5 sc (front), R, 3 sc (the first sleeve), R, 6 sc (back), R, 3 sc (the second sleeve), R, 5 sc (front) (34)
3 – 6 sc, R, 5 sc, R, 8 sc, R, 5 sc, R, 6 sc (42)
4 – 7 sc, R, 7 sc, R, 10 sc, R, 7 sc, R, 7 sc (50)
5 – 8 sc, R, 9 sc, R, 12 sc, R, 9 sc, R, 8 sc (58)
6 – 9 sc, R, 11 Sc, R, 14 sc, R, 11 Sc, R, 9 sc (66)
7– 10 sc, R, 13 sc, R, 16 sc, R, 13 sc, R, 10 sc (74)
In the next row, we will separate the sleeves. Check if the number of sleeve stitches is enough for you. If there is not enough, crochet the required number of rows with raglan before starting to separate the sleeves. If the sleeve turns out to be wide, then you need to dissolve one or more rows.
8 – 11 sc (front), the first sleeve: 17 sc, ch, turn (there are 4 rows 17 sc each in total), then fold the sleeve in half with right sides together and connect the edges with slip stitches. In the meantime, do not cut off the thread. Next work: 18 sc (back), the second sleeve: 17 sc, ch, turn (there are 4 rows 17 sc each in total), then fold the sleeve in half with right sides together and connect the edges with slip stitches. Then 11 sc (front). Thus, the sleeves are completely ready and there are no extra threads and knots.
9 – 11 sc, inc (under sleeve), 18 sc, inc (under sleeve), 11 sc (44) 10-14 – 44 sc (5 rows)
Cut off and secure the thread, weave in the ends inside the fabric.

Attach the blue thread to the 5th stitch on top of the jacket (this is the place where you want the hood to start), work 18 sc (or another number of stitches on top) , the main thing is that the same number of stitches remains on the other end to create a wrap over), then make 1 ch and turn. Next, crochet 15 rows of 18 sc in turning rows (16 rows in total). Then fold the top edge of the hood in half and connect the edges with slip stitches from the wrong side. Cut off and secure the thread, weave in the ends inside the fabric.
Attach the blue thread to the very beginning of the top of the jacket and work along the collar and hood with sc. Cut off and secure the thread, weave in the ends inside the fabric.
Next, sew the button to the jacket so that it fastens. Make decorative fasteners with brown thread. I did them like this: on one half of the jacket I made a loop from a chain of ch, and on the second half – a knot. Then put the loop on the knot.
Put the hat and the jacket on the bear.
