Bear Lollipop Pattern- Edited!

--- I edited the written pattern to match the diagram; I've also added the Tips and Hints page: thanks Misty!

! Here it is guys: a free bearpop lollipop pattern which you may use to make your own bear lollipops. It is actually a PDF with more pages, including a Pattern Information page and a Tips and Hints page. I would be emailing these to people who purchase them from my etsy shop. But you guys can have them for freegan, 'cause I love you so much! I only ask that if you are going to make and sell these on the internet or at craft fairs that you credit me (berrysprite), and even better, tell them about my etsy/ blog... it would be kindly appreciated! You can also post your pictures to the berrysprite amigurumi flickr group, so we can see how lovely your pops are!

Because this is my first pattern, I would love some feedback; if you use the pattern could you please leave a comment (its tres important!) on one or all of these things? Thanks so much!
  1. pattern page- how does it look visually? Do you like the layout and the graphics, or do you think they are distracting (I tried to keep lots of colors off the page people would print out.
  2. actual pattern- Is it easy to understand? Is it similar to other patterns you've seen? Are there any mistakes or is it unclear in a certain part?
  3. Pattern abbreviations and diagrams: Are the abbreviations and diagrams easy to understand? Are they helpful?
  4. Any other comments would be extremely helpful!
Thanks so much again guys, and I hope you love the pattern! Just click on the pictures to enlarge and print or follow the written instructions!

♥---♥= set of stitches to repeat while crocheting in the round

Begin: Ch 2, sc 6 in the second st from the hook; join ends with a slip/st in the first sc (6 st)
R1: ♥ 2 sc in each stitch around♥ , Repeat ♥ 6 times. (12 st)
R2: ♥1 sc in next st, then 2 sc in next st♥, Repeat ♥ 6 times. (18 st)

♥ ♥ ♥ After crocheting all the pieces, stuff the head with polyfil; then you can sew the ears onto the bear head, and use a bead of hot glue at the opening of your crochet to put the stick in your pop. Add the facial features last; it'll be easier that way! Finally, top him off with a kawaii little ribbon that you tie before-hand and glue on. ♥ ♥ ♥

  7. way nice pattern instructions! it's always refreshing to see someone who cares to make her pattern look professional :)

  8. thanks! love your designs and i especially appreciate the *free* patterns!

  9. Wow everything is soo cute cant wait to make the bear lollipop, check out my blog and tell me what you think ! :)

  10. hi, i thought your instructions were easy to follow. nothing misleading. And i'm from Denmark and have only tried out danish patterns before.
    by the way, thank you very much for this DIY, it's a really cute way to get rid of all the little pieces of yarn you have left. :)

  11. I'veen looking for your pattern like crazy after i see some pictures of your bear-pops, and now I really want to thankyou because it's so kind of you to share it!

  12. PLEEEASSSSEEE upload a video, I'm new on the crochet and Is very hard to figure out how to make the stitches, i really like this and I want to make the as a favor for my baby shower! pretttyyyy plaeeeeaseeeeeewith sugar on the topppp!!

  13. wow! so kawaii XD
    I'm gonna try to make these over the holidays~
    thanks for the tutorial :)

  14. i suck at amigurumi but this is my first good one!!!! ty

  15. Since you love us we love you too go berrysprite!!!!!

  16. Do you ever plan to put up the pattern for your bunny plushies or maybe even sell the pattern? I'd love to make my own. ^ ^

  17. I used a size E crochet hook with worsted yarn, but somehow the bear came out huge. Other than that it looks OK, but what did I do wrong?

  18. Hmmm... I'm not sure! Worsted yarns sometimes have different thicknesses, but since you are using an E hook it should have minimized the size. The only other thing is that maybe the tension of your crochet is a bit looser than mine, so your bear came out bigger... Not to worry, big bears are cute too! Keep crocheting, and you'll be able to tighten or loosen your tension as needed!

  19. These are absolutely adorable! I've recently taken up crochet myself, and I would like to start making my own designs. How do you make your own patterns, and where do you find your inspiration? Thanks for the tutorial!

  20. Your creations it's so cute! really adorable!
