Crochet Celebration for Canada 150

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.

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!
