Assembly
Pin all the pieces together to determine the desired placement for the entire piece and then stitch them securely into place. Remember to add any additional stuffing needed before closing up the holes on the pieces requiring stuffing.
General stitching and placement suggestions:
Center the body over the back part of the head. Adding additional stuffing right before closing is especially beneficial so that the neck remains sturdy and does not wobble.
Ears. Position the ears so they arch slightly with the front two sides at about around row 20 of the head and the back curve of the ear around row 22. No need to be too fussy.
Crocheted Eyes. Place the eyes at about Rnds 12-13 and about 6sts apart.
Nose. Place over the top front of the snout. When attaching the nose remember to also embroider any sort of desired mouth.
Arms. Place them about 2-3 rows down from where the head is attached to the body. The last round of the arm made a bit of a shoulder for the bear. When attaching the arms to the body add a bit more stuffing to help shape this shoulder right before closing up the hole.
Legs. The legs are attached over about Rnd 7-12 with about 5-6 stitches apart.
Tail. Lightly stuff the tail if desired. Place the tail at about Rnd 8 of the body, centered on the back.

Bow Tie
Bow Tie colors include: Vanna’s Choice in Kelly Green, Colonial Blue, and Cranberry
The bow tie is totally optional, but such a fun addition! Use it as a traditional bow tie or as a hair bow!

Row 5: Sc around the entire outside of the rectangle putting 2sc in each corner to help round the corner. Sl st in the first st and fasten off. Weave in the tail.

Center of the Bow
Using Color (D)
Ch 11
Design Note: Loop the chain around the middle of the main part of the bow to make sure that it reaches all the way around. It should be snug but reach all the way around, cinching the middle together. If it doesn’t quite reach add any additional chains needed to make it fit.
Row 1: Working in the back bar of the ch: sc in the 2nd ch from the hook and in each st across. (10sts)
Rows 2-3: Turn, ch1, sc in each st across (10sts for 2 Rows)
Fasten off leaving a long tail for stitching. Weave in the starting tail. Fasten around the center of the main part of the bow and stitch in place. Use the remaining tail to attach the bow to the bear.
