I stumbled across the pattern for this crocheted bear hat awhile back and filed it away in my list of “things I want to make” file. We watched a movie with the kids the other night which was the perfect time to get my crochet on.
This is a quick and easy project. If you have never crocheted a hat before, this is a really easy one to learn on. The ears are a bit trickier, but once you have the hat down, the ears will be a cinch. The only stitch is a single crochet, with no increases or decreases! The original pattern was for an infant. Since I wanted mine to fit a toddler I used a 4.25 mm crochet hook instead of the recommended 4.00 mm hook. The finished length is 7 inches long.
I found the pattern here.
