Crochet Challenge Doll #1: Little Teddy Bear

I’ve completed my first crochet challenge doll, the Little Teddy Bear! Hooray for me! I’m really happy to have successfully completed a crocheted project from start to finish. Of course, my doll needs a little work in the gauge department, but that’s ok. I’m completely accepting to the fact that this is a learning process. I’m hoping to improve my skills on the next doll, by noticing my mistakes in this one.

I used Caron Simply Soft in Blue Mint. The color looks great, nice and bright and happy, but the yarn did tend to split quite a bit. I have knit with this yarn often and I think it also did that for me using knitting needles. Next project will definitely involve using bulkier acrylic, a smaller hook and maybe a bell or two inside the doll for shaking action! Overall, pretty pleased with the finished product. I handed it over to my 8 month old little girl as soon as it was finished and she grabbed it from me, gave it a good shake and tossed it aside… success!!!
