1999-2000 I started designing and crocheting miniature bears. Soon there were requests for patterns, and in 2001 I published the first Basic Pattern. Soon this pattern was followed by Basic Pattern 2 and 3 and several follow-up patterns. The 3 Basic patterns together make a complete mini-course for crocheting mini thread bears. Previously, the Basic patterns were sold separately. To celebrate the 10th Anniversary of ThReAdTeDs® I have brought all 3 basic patterns together in one booklet. Once you’ve mastered the basics with help of this mini-course, it will be easy to work with all ThReAdTeDs® patterns. The patterns in this booklet can be crocheted with various sized threads and yarns with matching crochet hook. The thinner the yarn, the smaller the bear, the thicker the yarn, the larger the bear.
