Bear Hug Blanket – Crochet Pattern

The Bear Hug Blanket is a new individual pattern that coordinates with the Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket ebook. These blanket patterns all feature a striking animal silhouette and is framed with a beautiful crochet cable textures in a frame (border) of the blanket. 

The Bear Hug blanket was inspired by the cute cabin decor that is found on store shelves right now. Nearly anyone who love the great outdoors and wants that “warmth of home” or a “weekend at the cabin” feel will fall in love with this design.

The design of the blanket features a mirrored detail of twisting cables separated by lines of detail. The corner pieces of this blanket feature the same straight lines that pop and bring the sides together. This is a more modern corner piece than the other wildlife designs. 

About the Pattern

I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn for the beautiful rich brown. I love working with this yarn because it is soft, works up nicely, makes your stitches stand out and washes up well. For the white background color it is essential that you either use the same brand and weight of yarn, or use a yarn that has the same WIP (wraps per inch). I used Caron Simply Soft for the background resulting in 2 different yarns that worked well together.  

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats in the pattern for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is used to crochet the bear silhouette. At the end of the pattern, there is an included enlarged graph, simply print off all 4 pages and tape them together.

If you are unfamiliar with crocheting from a graph then a supplement has been added to the pattern to assist you along the way. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in a little more detail. Essentially, it states how many stitches to complete in each color. This supplement can also be used as a way to double check the accuracy of your work.

Customize your Animal Ear Warmer Pattern:

Each Ear Warmer begins the same way. Make the basic band in any size from newborn up to adult. You will make it just the way you want with instructions/suggestions for color changes for the different animals. Wearing just the band is also an option for a more simple look.

Make the Band

Build each headband using the instruction for each individual animal. Make pieces for the eyes, nose and ears. Switch up pieces if you like (change out the open or sleepy eyes on the fox & owl) or decide to leave some off for a more simple look like the sock monkey option.

Sew on the pieces for an adorable ear warmer. If you haven’t sewn on appliques before, you may find this tutorial I created helpful, just click HERE. Using this technique can give your crochet work that professional look:

Your completed Animal Ear Warmers are sure to be a huge hit. Request will probably start coming in for more animals, or different colors, but the best part is, the options are endless.
