Meet Gerry the Felted Bear
Gerry is a fantastic beginning project for felting: it’s so easy! You crochet the pieces from a wool yarn, and then toss them in the washing machine, and magic happens! This project is crocheted holding two strands of yarn together and a big hook, so it works up fast. And because this bear is felted, it’s very durable and huggable.
Gerry measures 11″ tall when completed!
Ella Rae Classic is the yarn used in the sample: Brown (440 yds) and tan (40 yds). Because this bear is felted, a 100% wool yarn is required.
