I modified the original crochet pattern of the Mother Bear Project for seamless construction, and a little neck shaping, too. The "seam" runs up the center of the back.
I kindly donated my seamless pattern modification to the Mother Bear Project. Please go to their website to purchase the Seamless Crochet Pattern. $5 gets you the pattern, a brochure, the wrist tag, and your first bear's airfare. Additional bears should include $3 each. All proceeds go to the distribution of many more bears to the children who love them.
ERRATA & CORRECTIONS:
(In the first batch printed Jan. 2012.)
Feet start with **Ch7**.
Arms start with **Ch6**.
Rnd 2 of arm/body join ends with **...sc2tog, 6 sc. 52 sc**.
Rnd 1 of head starts with **Ch 1. Turn work**.
And I didn't specify whether you're working on the outside or wrong side. First round of each section and each odd numbered round is worked with outside facing. Even rounds are worked with wrong side facing.
