Care Bears Care & Share Crochet Afghans crochet pattern book, another book from inventory in my now-closed needlework/crafts shop. It was bought new when in print and has been stored since; it is NOT an illegal pdf or copy. The patterns are: 1. Cheer Bear 2. Oopsy Bear 3. Share Bear 4. Grumpy Bear 5. Funshine Bear All are made from one basic afghan body, and then the bears are embroidered on with cross stitch, etc working from charts. Some of the details are crocheted (for example, rainbow) and then appliqued to the blanket. You can also crochet the bears into the afghan using the same sc as the body and changing color when needed. A page of the exact colors and brands used is included, all brands easily found - Red Heart Super Saver and Classic, and Caron Simply Soft.
The patterns all use worsted weight yarns such as Red Heart Super Saver; specific yarns and colors are given. You will also need small amounts of felt for some of the features and polyfil to stuff the pieces. There are also close-up pictures of some of the details, to help you with the pattern.
I closed my physical shop back in 2007 due to family health problems, and I have many, many older ( but new condition) crochet books from many publishers that were never listed on my web site. If there is a particular title that you wish you could find, just email me and ask! I am also happy to ship outside the US, and shipping cost will depend on the destination. Feel free to ask questions.
Thank you for looking at my listing, and happy crocheting!
I use the USPS exclusively. Shipping costs shown are for postage; any other services such as insurance or delivery confirmation are extra. Uninsured orders are sent at the buyer's own risk; I make the insurance optional because most buyers do not want to pay $1.80 insurance on a $3.00 book! I try to mail packages no later than the next week day, and if I plan to be out of the shop for more than 2 days I will put a notice on the shop page.
Payments may be with Paypal, personal or bank check, or money order. International orders are welcome; Paypal is preferred for international order, but a check or money order ON A US BANK is allowed if pre-approved. Louisiana residents will pay 8.5% sales tax.
Returns & exchanges
Since books can be copied and then returned (I found this out in my shop years ago), I do not allow returns on books unless they are defective. Since I personally page through each book before I send it out, this has never happened! Other items such as supplies are handled on an individual basis.
