The 30 Cutest Crochet Bears

Adriana Maronese  - February 5, 2020

A teddy bear is every child’s first best friend. They’ll do everything together: eat, nap, camp outside, stargaze and go on a million adventures. When I was little, my aunt had a big teddy bear and, if my cousins and I were good, she would allow us to play with it. That bear was a patient in so many imaginary emergency rooms, a guest at multiple tea parties and even helped us build a blanket fort. These childhood memories will forever live in my heart.

A bear is a friend who will laugh with you when you’re happy, will comfort you when you’re sad and will protect you from all monsters who live in the closet and under the bed. He’ll play with you outside when it’s sunny and will snuggle with you when it’s cold. And when the day is over, he’ll kiss you goodnight and keep you warm while you sleep. No matter if you’re six, thirty or seventy years old, a teddy bear will always bring you joy.

These are my 30 favorite crochet bears.
