Bear Mods For Crochet Burger Pattern!

As posted earlier this week on Instagram, I entered Lincraft's competition for making one of their How To's, which was this awesome (free) A529 Crochet Burger pattern by Janine Tsakisiris.

I used the base pattern to make this burger bear! I used a wooden skewer, with a handmade flag out of deco tape, to hold it all down. Below are the patterns for the ears and muzzle to complete the bear mod.

  • Use the same yarn and hook specified in the pattern
  • 5mm crochet hook
  • 10ply white yarn (small amount)
  • 8ply/DK black yarn (tiny amount)
  • black thread
  • sewing needle
  • scissors
  • fabric glue OR hot glue (optional)
  • blush (optional)
  • Magic Ring
  • Crocheting in the round
  • US Terminology used

 Ears x 2  (same tan colour as bun):
  1. MR 6 in circle (6)
  2. Inc each sc (12)
  3. (12)
  4. (12) FO and leave tail for sewing to top bun.
 Muzzle  x 1 (white, 10ply yarn):
  1. MR 13 HDC into circle (13)
  2. FO: leave tail for sewing on top bun OR use glue (what I used).

  • Below stuffing and closing up the top bun, place safety eyes about 13 sts apart, three rows from the bottom of the colour change (last row where you crocheted into the BL only).  
  • After stuffing and closing up the top bun, find placement for ears on top bun. Mine were about 15 sts apart, 6 rows down from the top of the bun, and falls vertically about 7 rows down. I placed the ears slightly at an angle.
  • Sew a little mouth with two strands of black sewing thread on muzzle piece. Then, use one strand of black yarn to embroider four or five lines in the same st, 1 st across. Tie knots on the back and/or use glue to secure.
  • Sew or glue muzzle to top bun evenly between the eyes. Add some pink blush (or chalk; or cut out pink circles of felt to sew or glue on). 
  • Finish with making a little skewer to hold the whole stack together! Enjoy! 🍔🐻
