Make this cute Bear Glasses Holder / Stand with me

I know how annoying it is to lose your glasses, or when you’re not sure where to put them when you are resting, and making sure you will not end up sitting on them by inadvertence. (yeah it happened to me, sad memory, don’t want to talk about it). So I had this idea of making a stand, a kawaii one like I – almost – always do, right?! Hence, today I will be teaching you how to make a super cute Bear Glasses Holder, so get ready and follow me along this pattern.

Material


Abbreviations


ch: chain

sl st: slip stitch

sc: single crochet

hdc: half double crochet

inc: increase

dec: decrease

R: round / row

Notes:

Every row ends with a ch 1 then turn unless it says otherwise. When working in rounds, we will use the amigurumi method, that is to say no joining rounds with a slip stitch at the end.

The finished item size is 18,5 cm tall and 17 cm wide.

Save it for later, Pin it!

How to make a cute bear glasses holder

R20: sc dec x2, 4 sc, sc dec x 2 (8)

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Make 2 of them: one is the front side of the head, the other is the back side. Cut a cardboard a little smaller then them, then insert it in between the 2 sides of the head, before single crocheting around them (to join them together), to make a sturdy and solid head.

Note: I recommend you to sew the muzzle on the face before joining the two sides together, because it will be a little difficult to sew it later on (like I did).

Muzzle

With the 4 mm hook. Work it amigurumi style, no joining rounds with a sl st at the end.

Make a magic circle.

Round 1: 6 sc (6)

Round 2: 6 sc inc (12)

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Sew or glue the nose on the muzzle, in the middle top.

Ears

Repeat from row 12 to 19, then cut yarn and weave in the ends. Make two of them (the front and back side). And just like we did with the head, we will cut a cardboard in the same shape as the front legs and then insert it in between the two sides. Then join them together by single crocheting around.

Once you’re done, sew the bottom of the head on the front of the legs.

Ch 7, starting the 2nd loop from the hook:

Round 1: 5 sc, 3 sc last stitch of the chain, continue working on the other side of the chain: 4 sc, 2 sc in the 1st loop of the chain (where we already made a sc) (14)

R3: 1 sc, sc inc, 4 sc, (1 hdc, hdc inc) x 3, 4 sc, (1 sc, sc inc) x 2 (26)

Add 2 sc, then sl st in the next stitch (or make an invisible join).

Cut yarn and weave in ends.

Make 4 of them. Take 2 of them for 1 foot, place them back to back and single crochet around to join them together. Stuff the inside of the foot with some polyester fiberfill. Do the same for the 2nd foot.

Then sew the 2 feet on each side of the back’s bottom. Note that the part of the feet where we made the HDC, are the top of the feet, so place them accordingly before sewing.

The hdc of the last round are on the top of the feet.
The Rectangular cuboid

We will now make a rectangular prism to hold the front of the bear with the back, and make the glass holder standing well.

With the 4 mm crochet hook.

Ch 11, starting the 2nd loop from the hook:

Row 1 to 7: 10 hdc (10)

Round 8: We will now crochet around the rectangle that we got: ch 1, 6 hdc on the side, ch 1, 10 hdc on the bottom of row 1, ch 1, 6 hdc on the other side, ch 1, 10 hdc on top of row 7 (32), sl st in the 1st ch1 at the end of the round.

Round 9: ignore all the ch 1 we previously made, and make a ch1 then 32 hdc (32), sl st in the 1st hdc at the end of the round.

R10 to 13: 32 hdc (32) sl st in the 1st hdc at the end of each round.

Cut yarn and leave a tail long enough for sewing.

Now fill the inside of the rectangular cuboid with polyester fiberfill, then sew the part where it has a hole to the middle top of the back.
