"This pattern can be crocheted in brown shades of yarn to make a grizzly bear rug. In fact, black bear coats can be brown, blue-black, blue-grey and even white in colour. It includes a materials list with the yarn brand but also weight and fiber content so you can make substitutions, the finished size, the tension (gauge), and method, which outlines the construction process. There is a pattern chart as well as written instructions and the end of each pattern includes detailed making up instructions for assembly. There are also multiple, smaller photos of details of the project, such as a close up of eyes, mouth, or face."
