Crochet Pattern of the Day: Klondike the Snow Bear

SONY DSC [1]Whether or not it’s snowing in your hometown, it’s certainly time to embrace winter. This past week, I went to Chicago’s Zoo Lights display at the Lincoln Park Zoo and saw some of my favorite animals playing in the snow. Unfortunately, the polar bears were sleeping, but luckily I have this super cute amigurumi pattern to make instead!

It’s impossible to resist Klondike the Snow Bear. Kids of all ages will love playing with this super cute crochet pattern. Get the full crochet pattern below, and find even more amigurumi crochet patterns right here [2].

Special thanks to Rhondda Mol of Oombawka Design [3] for this exclusive crochet pattern!
