Crochet a tiny superhero
This is Super TED, a tiny little superhero teddy bear. During the day, he’s like just any other sweet little teddy bear, a friend to little kids. But once the lullabies are sung and the little ones drift into the dream world, Super TED turns into a warrior—a deadly 4-inch foe to monsters hiding under the bed. POW!
Super TED is a super simple amigurumi pattern, perfect for beginners. For the more experienced, it’s still a fun and quick stash busting project.
