There are some things that you are never too old for, and teddy bears must surely be at the top of such list. There is definitely someone in your life that would love to have one for a birthday, especially if it’s a cute crochet cake bear made with your hands!
To crochet a cake bear you’ll need:
- Super fine 100% acrylic yarn (200 m / 50 g) in beige, brown, red and white colors
- 2.0 mm crochet hook
- 7 mm safety eyes
- Buttons for joining head, arms and legs (Ø 1.5 cm – 4 pcs, Ø 1.7 cm – 6 pcs)
- Thread strong enough for fastening head, arms and legs
- 30 cm long satin ribbon
Skill level: intermediate
This crochet cake bear is about 13 cm (5.1″) when sitting, if you use similar yarn and hook. The pattern can also work well with the yarn of other weight, but the size of finished crochet toy will be different.

I’ve been trying to download your free patterns. It takes me to a site where you have to pay for them. Am I doing something wrong or am I reading it wrong? Then they are not FREE.
Hi Geri 🙂 You can use online versions of the patterns for free on our website and mobile app. PDF version itself is not free. Because it takes a lot of time to prepare the patterns. So, in spite of this fact all people who can’t pay for PDF patterns can view them on the website and make wonderful toys. We don’t hide the instructions. Hope for your understanding 🙂
I think this pattern is too cute. Can I translate this pattern to Czech and publish it on my blog?
Hi Karla 🙂 Thank you 🌹 Unfortunately, translation is not allowed.
