Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set – Crochet Pattern

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set – Crochet Pattern

Sharing is caring!

We just wrapped up month long CAL and am now ready to share the Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Pattern with all of you! This baby blanket is full of rich texture, new stitches and some cute cuddly teddy bears. This is machine washable although you may need to follow some after laundry steps, like airdrying it rather than putting it in the dryer.

I was actually inspired to make this baby blanket by one of my best friends. You see, her little one is currently entering one of the sleep regression ages and she is finding it difficult to get her baby to sleep. Put simply, a sleep regression is a period when a baby who has been sleeping well (or at least well enough) experiences poor sleep.

Sleep regressions can include shorter naps, extreme fussiness at nap or bedtime, fighting sleep, and frequent waking at night. Consequently, finding ways to help your baby to get to sleep during these times is crucial and one way to do this is by creating a cozy environment with blankets and soft toys.

The blanket is so fun to make, but I had to give you some options so adjusted the pattern to include a lovey sized blanket and a coordinating stuffed bear to make it the ultimate Gift Set.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear

As always, you can pick and choose your favorites or buy all 3 patterns at a package price. Grab the Baby Blanket, just the Lovey, or just the Teddy Bear Stuffy. Or grab the entire Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set for a discounted price.

The Blanket and Lovey can be made is so many fun color combinations. To see more check out the album from the CAL on facebook.

Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Lovey

Make a coordinating snuggly teddy bear.

I know these little sleepy teddy bears are too cute, but you have to add a snugly friend to go with them. The Sleep Tight Teddy Bear is a perfect size, completed it measures about 13″ tall.

Update: Teddy Bear Colors

I’ve received a handful of requests for the exact colors I used on my teddy bears. When I made the teddy bears on the blanket I just used scrap yarn that I happened to have on hand. The majority of it was either Red Heart Super Saver and/or Red Heart with Love. I am not 100% sure on each bears color but I believe it is as follows, numbering the bears from the left to the right:
  • 1st Bear: main color “grey” / muzzle “oatmeal” / nose & eyes “black”
  • 2nd Bear: main color “cornmeal” / muzzle “egg shell” / nose “warm brown” / eyes “mocha”
  • 3rd Bear: main color “warm brown” / muzzle “carrot” / nose “egg shell” / eyes “mocha”
  • 4th Bear: main color “oatmeal” / muzzle “buff” / nose & eyes “mocha”
  • 5th Bear: main color “charcoal” / muzzle “grey” / nose “warm brown” / eyes “black” with “warm brown” lashes

New Coordinating Designs

A couple new designs have been released to go along with the original Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Set. The coordinating Sleep Tight Pocket Pillow features a fun pocket that can be used to store their stuffed teddy bear or a favorite book, as the child grows it can be used to store a kindle or other items as well.

I have also designed a coordination Sleep Tight Teddy Bear Hat. This darling accessory comes in sizes from newborn up through child.

    Where can I get assistance as I’m having a problem understanding a part of pattern

    I’ve been sick the last few months and haven’t been online much so some how I missed this adorable blanket. My grandson is due in June so yesterday I finally found and startedd his blanket yesterday. I like the pattern but wasn’t crazy about it. But last night I came across this picture and before I knew it I was crying. I’ve never had a pattern do that to me before so I know without a doubt that this is the one I’m meant to do for my little angel. So as soon as hubby gets home I will be able to purchase the pattern. Thank you so much for the most adorable blanket I have ever seen. You are very talented. Thank you for all you do.

    1. SweetPotato3

      Awe, I am so happy it’s design touched you so much. I hope you love making it. Be sure to share your final pictures with me. I love seeing everyone’s work. Also, be sure to browse through the link in the article to see some samples. I adore looking through them and seeing so many different ways to make the same blanket.

    I would like this pattern how can i get it

    1. SweetPotato3

      Just click on the links in the blog post. There are links for the full set, or the individual pieces (blanket, lovey, stuffy).

  4. Patsy Dibble

    Is there a way o make it larger.

    1. SweetPotato3

      You can do as many “repeats” of the main blanket section as you want which will widen the blanket, then just continue the pattern until the desired length has been reached 🙂

      1. Deb Nell

        How many stitches would you start off with instead of 100 if I wanted to add 2 more shell -v sections, to make 7 “beds?”

        1. SweetPotato3

          increase by 18 stitches for each extra “section”. So to add 2 extra sections, increase 36 stitches 🙂

          1. Deb Nell

            Thanks so much. I crochet very tightly and I don’t want to use a bigger hook.

  5. susana gallardo

  7. Judi Grinnell

    In this pattern on row 5 the instructions say “skip side of shell”. Not sure what that means. Love this pattern

  8. Betty

    Thank you

      Betty, send me an email and I’ll help you out 🙂

  9. Katie

    What are the dimensions of your finished blanket? Trying to decide if I will buy it based on size. Thanks

  10. Sallie

    I purchased the pattern and have been having difficult time on row 7 where you skip the side of the shell and sc in next 3 stitches, my FPTC does not line up correctly, has there been a revision?

    1. SweetPotato3

      Sallie, there hasn’t been a revision but send me an email and I’ll help you out 🙂

  11. Beth

    I just finished mine for a friend having a baby. Thank you for the video tutorials!! Love it and mine turned out really cute.

  12. Valérie

    Hi! I love that cute blanket but it says in the title on Pinterest that it is free. And when I click on the link, we have to pay for the pattern. I suscribed to your page but it still cost money…

    1. SweetPotato3

      Hi Valerie, Unfortunately, I cannot control how people title their pins on Pinterest and I know someone has used the wrong term. I am unable to correct that (basically it is the same for all the wrong links and dead links you find throughout the site). The Sleep Tight Teddy Bear pattern is a premium pattern that includes many photo and video tutorials that took a lot of time to create so there is a cost to purchase the pattern. This supports my small business and I hope you feel it is worth the price to get the patterns. ~Christine

      1. Valérie

        Hi Christine!
        Thanks for the quick answer, now I understand!

        It definitely worth the price and I will certainly buy it a bit later as I already have a few projects ahead of me.

        Good luck with your business!


  13. Jordyn Trafzer

    I cannot figure out how to find the pattern! Please help!

    1. SweetPotato3

      Just click on any of the images or any of the highlighted (in orange) words that say Sleep Tight 🙂

  14. Jennifer

    Am I missing the pattern download somewhere? Where is the free sleep tight teddy bear blanket pattern as advertised? Thank you for your help….

    1. SweetPotato3

      Hi Jennifer,
      I am so happy to see that you like this pattern so much. I feel terrible that you saw the pattern through a misinformed post (my guess is it was on Pinterest). Unfortunately, anyone can post anything they want on Pinterest. Someone has posted that this pattern is free on there. I have had many of these posts removed, but I just cannot get them all removed. This pattern took many hours to design, write up and have tested. Along with the hours it took to make multiple video tutorials to help you along the way, I consider all this and look at this design as a premium pattern. Therefore there is a cost to purchase it. I hope you can see the value in it and consider supporting my small shop by purchasing the Sleep Tight Teddy bear Set.

    My cousin wants to make this. I have some yarn in the bear colors he needs. I am stingy with my stash and was just wondering if you could tell me about how much yarn is needed for a bear . I like keeping my various leftovers and would prefer to give him those which hell actually use, or part of some bigger leftovers. I realize this is a paid pattern but thought maybe itd be ok to ask you this so he can make it cheaper. Lol. Frugality runs in the family apparently.

    1. SweetPotato3

      Judy, i totally understand being frugal! Honestly, they take a very small amount 10-15 yards is all per bear.

  16. Marja Glas

    Hi, I want to start with the blanket, but don’t know how to maken the shell stitch
