The Yarn used to crochet a Bear
The yarn used to make the Crochet the Hooded Bear Blanket is Bernat Softee Chunky Super Bulky Weight yarn from Mary Maxim. Bernat Softee Chunky is 100% Acrylic and a lighter Super Bulky yarn. You can find a large selection of colours at an affordable price below.
If you’re looking for a yarn substitute I’ve listed a few that I think will work well. Make sure to meet the pattern gauge of 6.5 sts and 6 rows equal to 4″ in pattern with a 10mm crochet hook
It’s hard to find a Super Bulky Weight substitute for this yarn because most are thicker and bulkier than Bernat Softee chunky. The easiest substitute for super bulky yarn is to use 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. Here are a few of my favourites.
I love crocheting with my Streamline Hooks from Furls. They are light and easy to work with. I especially love the large crochet hooks. They are so nice to work with and I can crochet for hours without hand pain. I used the Cafe 10mm and 6.5mm crochet hooks for the Crochet Hooded Bear Blanket. Use code MJS15 for 15% off.

How to crochet Hooded Bear Blanket on YouTube HERE
The blanket, scarf and hood are worked using a 10mm crochet hook and 1 strand of super bulky yarn; you may substitute with worsted weight yarn by holding 2 strands together, double the yardage required. The hood pieces are made using a 6.5mm crochet hook. The blanket, hood, and scarf are all worked separately and then sewn together. The blanket is worked from the top down. The scarf is centred and then sewn to the top of the blanket. The hood is then centred and sewn to the scarf. Turning ch doesn’t count as a stitch unless otherwise indicated. Video tutorial is included in toddler size on YouTube.
