Naughty or Nice, free patterns for all

Naughty-or-Nice-Holiday-Bears-Free-Amigurumi-Pattern---Tales-of-Twisted-FibersIs it too early for a Holiday themed blog post? I hope not because two very sweet darlings want me to ask you what do you think they should expect to find in their Christmas stockings this year.Naughty-or-Nice-Holiday-Bears-Free-Amigurumi-Pattern---Tales-of-Twisted-FibersThis is the naughty little Holiday bear. See that troubled expression on his face? That’s because he’s been naughty throughout the year, giving his mama a hard time. Now that Christmas is approaching, he’s worried he’s going to end up with a lump of coal in his stocking.Naughty-or-Nice-Holiday-Bears-Free-Amigurumi-Pattern---Tales-of-Twisted-FibersThis cheerful fella, on the other hand, has been really nice this year and he is excited to see what Santa will bring for him. Personally he’d prefer a 3D printer but he knows Santa’s elves don’t do 3D printer because promoting that kind of technology would practically leave them jobless.

While these two Naughty and Nice Holiday Bears chalk up their wish list, I’ll let you into a secret—I cheated while making these amigurumis! Now that I have your undivided attention, let me explain. Both these amigurumi bears have been designed in such a way that they can be out on display throughout the year, and not just on Christmas. Naughty-or-Nice-Holiday-Bears-Free-Amigurumi-Pattern---Tales-of-Twisted-FibersSince they do not come in traditional Christmas colors as you must have noticed, all you need to do is remove their hats and scarves and hide away their stockings and they are good for any season 😀 Naughty-or-Nice-Holiday-Bears-Free-Amigurumi-Pattern---Tales-of-Twisted-FibersAnd now, it’s time for some free goodies! Who wants free patterns for these amigurumi Holiday Bears? Each of these two PDFs contain crochet patterns for the bear, its hat and scarf, and a miniature Christmas stocking.

    Teddies are absolutely beautiful! Downloaded them so yeeey! 😀
    As always you did amazing work and these will make great XMas presents. Thanks for making this pattern and for sharing it with us!

  3. Sarah says:

    You really are a gift to the crochet world! Thank you SO much for your beautiful creations and generosity in sharing the patterns x

  4. katythenightowl says:

    These really are gorgeous and, although I don’t celebrate the holidays, they would still make great presents throughout the year, especially with a change of colours for their clothing – thank you so much for providing such gorgeous patterns for everyone 🙂

    • Twisted Fibers says:

      Even though I made these two for the holidays, I wanted to make sure the bears were not restricted by a particular theme. Like you said, a few changes in the color can make them every season/occasion appropriate. I’m glad you like them enough to make them for your loved ones 🙂

  5. Lesley Rougeau says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love bears of all kinds and yours are absolutely adorable!! I can’t wait to get some time to work on them. It is so kind of you to share your patterns.

  6. Pamela Dunbar says:

    As always I love your work & OMG! these are just adorable. One thing if you could let me know what weight of yarn & size hook should be used or does that part really matter?
    Thank you so much for your wonderful creations! 🙂 ❤ Pamela

    • Twisted Fibers says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words, Pamela 🙂 I used a 14 WPI yarn for the little bear and 12 WPI for the bigger one and worked with a 2.5 mm hook on both amigurumis. But as long as you use the same yarn weight for all doll parts, it shouldn’t really matter. Hope this helps 🙂

    • Twisted Fibers says:

      I visited your blog and immediately fell in love with your amigurumi nativity, Annemie! Your work is truly exceptional. Thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting; otherwise I probably wouldn’t have found your fabulous blog 🙂

    • Twisted Fibers says:

      Wow! I’m so thrilled to hear that, especially because the very first amigurumi I ever tried hooking up was your Amanda and Annie Bears! In fact, I learned how to join amigurumi legs from your tutorial. I’ve always admired your work. So it’s an honor to be a part of jennyandteddy’s Christmas round up. Thank you so much — for everything 🙂

    The bears are adorable and wonderful work. Since I have never gone by WPI, what kinds of yarn would be what you used? Can worsted weight work or maybe a brand called, Afternoon Cotton which is 100% Egyptian Giza Mercerized Cotton? This yarn calls for an F hook

    • Twisted Fibers says:

      Thank you, Debbie. I use light worsted weight yarn and a 2.50 mm hook for (almost) all my amigurumis. So yes, this pattern will work well with light/medium worsted weight. In fact, you can use any yarn you want as long as you use the same weight for all doll parts. I’ve never used Afternoon Cotton but according to its website, it’s light worsted and should be worked with an F hook (3.75 mm). Should you decide to work with this yarn, I’d suggest you use a hook that’s a bit smaller than what’s recommended to keep the stitches tighter and to keep the stuffing from peeping through the gaps.

    The “Download” links above do not download the pattern pdfs, but take you to a page asking you to download a ‘Mega’ app which I do not want or need. Thanks.

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      Yes, I realized the storage provider was forcing mobile phone and tablet users to download its app before they could access the pattern. How messed up is that! I’ve transferred all my patterns to WordPress. You should have no problem downloading the patterns now. 🙂

    Reblogged this on Clovers 4 Ewe and commented:
    Quite some time ago I shared one of Serah’s free patterns. I said she was crazy for offering these adorable creations up for free and I still stand by that. She’s crazy but I do appreciate it as I can’t always afford to collect all of the adorable amigurumis I see.

    This is a post from last year that I stumbled upon after collecting some of her latest creations. The two I just snatched up are perfect for everyday and the upcoming Halloween holiday, celebrated in the states, but these two are great for Wintery Holiday gifts. A Naughty Bear and a Nice Bear, remind me of my three kids, would make great stocking stuffers. Maybe if I get started now, I can make some of these Naughty Bears for my naughty trio and some Nice Bears for White Christmas with the in-laws.

    Thanks for being so crazy, Serah!

    • Tales of Twisted Fibers says:

      Just saw this comment. I don’t know how I missed this earlier but thank you so much for the reblog and your kind words. 🙂 I hope you managed to make these bears for everyone on your Christmas list and I hope you had fun doing it. 🙂 By the way, there’s a new, very cute Christmas themed pattern on this blog. And, guess what, it’s free. Yes, crazy is good. Ha ha! 😉
