Pattern: Yogi Bear

Yogi Bear. Yet another adorable cartoon made during the golden age of cartoons that people can't seem to get enough of. I love Yogi, so I was extremely shocked not to find a single pattern for him anywhere. So being the designer that I am, I made one. And as always it's here for all of you to use for free.

Notions: G hook
               F hook
               Light Brown and Tan and light Green yarn
               Small amount of Black yarn
               Black and White felt
               Tapestry needle
               Stitch marker
               Fiber fill (I always forget to put that on the list)
               Hot glue gun

Body: With LB yarn and G hook, ch 2, sc 6 in second ch from hook.
Rnd 1: Inc around
Rnd 2: Sc, inc, round
Rnd 3: Sc 2, inc, around
Rnds 4-9: Sc around
Rnd 10: Sc 3, inc, around
Rnds 11-13: Sc around
Rnd 14: Sc 4, inc, around
Rnds 15-19: Sc around
Rnd 20: Sc 5, inc, around
Rnd 21: Sc 4, dec, around
Rnd 22: Sc 3, dec, around
Rnd 23: Sc 2, dec, around
Rnd 24: Sc, dec, around
Stuff.
Rnd 25: dec around
Fasten off and sew hole closed.    

Nose: With black yarn and F hook, ch 2, sc 6 in second ch from hook.
Rnd 1: Sc around
Rnd 2: Inc around
Switch to tan yarn
Rnd 3: Inc in next 3 sts, sc in rest
Rnd 4: ( Sc, inc) 3 times. sc in rest
Rnd 5: Sc around
Rnd 6: Sc, dc inc, dc 2, sc, sl st 3, sc, dc 2, dc inc, sc, sl st 5.
Fasten off and lightly stuff. Sew unto front of head.

Legs: (Make 2) With LB and G hook, ch 2, sc 5 in second ch from hook.
Rnds 1-5: Sc around
Rnd 6: Inc around
Rnds 7&8: Sc around
Row 9: Sc, ch 1 and turn. Sc 4 across.
Rows 10&11: ch 1, sc across. Fasten off and sew to body.

Now you should have something that looks like this (Lower right) .
If you fold the long skinny part to the left, like the left picture, and sew it in that position you'll have the left leg. Fold it to the right and you'll have the right leg. The tab at the top helps make the leg flow naturally into the body when to sew it.








      







Arms: (Make 2) With LB yarn and G hook, ch, sc 5 in second ch from hook
Rnds 1-5: Sc around
Rnd 6: Sc, inc around. Sc in last
Rnds 7-11: Sc around
Row 12: Sc 4, ch 1 and turn
Row 13: Sc 4 across.
Fasten off and sew to body

Ears: (Make 2) With LB and G hook
Ch 2, sc, dc 2, sc in second ch from hook. Fasten off and sew to head.

Hat: With LG and G hook, ch 2, sc 6 in second ch from hook
Rnd 1: Inc around
Rnd 2: Sc, inc, around
Rnd 3: Sc 2, inc, around
Rnd 4: (in back loops only) sc around
Rnd 5: Sc around
Rnd 6: (in front loops only) [sc, hdc, dc inc, dc 3 in next st, dc, dc inc, hdc, sc, sl st 3] repeat
Fasten off. Cut out and glue a strip of black felt to the hat.

Collar & Tie: For the tie, (make 2) ch 7 and sl st in second ch from hook and rest. Fasten off. Glue together and then glue to Yogi. The collar is simply a white piece of felt glued to Yogi and over top the tie. I liked the felt because it looks really clean.

Eyes and Mouth: There're felt. I'm sure you can figure out the rest.

And there you have it. Yogi Bear. Don't forget to contact me if you have any problems with the pattern or any questions. Have fun at JellyStone Park!
