John the Canadian Bear was inspired by Canada’s 150 anniversary in 2017 and was named after our first prime minister Sir John A. Macdonald. I created him so we could celebrate Canada’s birthday together in our cozy crochet habitat at IraRott Designs.
like a true Canadian, John loves to play hockey & he also makes a very good friend!
John the Canadian Bear is crocheted from Bernat Blanket yarn by Yarnspiration, which is the softest and most fabulous Super Bulky weight yarn (6) I have yet encountered, it’s so easy to work with. You can finish this 31″ teddy bear using hook 9 mm (M/N) in almost no time!
Sharon Hume from PEI Canada made an adorable “Johanna” version of our John the Bear for her 4 yo daughter. Johanna wears clothing labeled size 4T/5T, how awesome is that!
I hope you will enjoy this pattern & we cannot wait to see your finished teddy bears!
