Santa Bear Ornament – Free Crochet Pattern

This Santa Bear ornament is fairly quick to make and lots of fun too. It’s pretty simple, using basic crochet techniques that aren’t too hard. The only thing that might be an issue for beginners is the magic ring, but there are a lot of tutorials on YouTube for how to do it. 

Please don’t forget to tag me in pictures of your makes on instagram @safehaven_studio and don’t forget to check out my paid patterns here on my ko-fi or here on my Ravelry. Thanks so much!

Pom for Hat – Using White

R1: Leave a tail at the beginning and work 4Sc in MR (4). Sl st once to first Sc.
FO and leave an ending tail. Using the end tail, weave through the remaining 3 sts and pull tight. Do not weave in yet. This should form a little ball.

Pull both the beginning tail and the end tail of yarn through the tip of the Santa hat. I tie mine three or four times on the inside and cut the excess yarn.

Now the hat is done!


Assembly

Using red yarn, sew a fold in the hat so the tip is bent down and slightly to the left. Please see my image for reference.

Put the hat on the teddy’s head and pin it at a slight angle. Using the white yarn tail from the hat, sew the hat to the head. Add a ribbon or hook to the hat and you’re done!
