It's finally here! I've had so many requests for my baby bear pom-pom hat, and up until now I've only had the abbreviated notes written by myself that I made when designing the hat. I was pretty sure no one else would have been able to understand my notes, or my handwriting for that matter, so I needed to translate these into a legible, easy to understand pattern. It took me awhile and some serious concentration but I have turned my scribble into pattern that can be easily followed by any beginning crocheter. So, turn your little one into an adorable baby bear this winter with my popular Baby Bear Pom-Pom Hat! You can even use this pattern to make a Baby Bear Beanie by not adding the ear-flaps and straps, or you can make an aviator ear-flap hat by not adding the pom-poms!
PATTERN LEVEL: Beginner/Intermediate
HAT SIZE: 6-12 months = 16.5"-18" (will stretch slightly)
*other sizes, up to 24 months, are available by request
-Knowledge of basic crochet stitches (chain, single crochet, double crochet, slip stitch)
-Ability to read basic crochet patterns
-Knowledge of how to make a pom-pom (I do give you tips and you can also find tutorials online)
- 2 skeins of Lion Brand Vanna's Choice Yarn, or 2 skeins of similar sport weight yarn
- Tapestry needle to weave in loose yarn ends
- Crochet hook size J, or size needed to reach gauge
GAUGE: Using 2 pieces of yarn... 3dc = 1" / 1dc row = 1"
With this pattern you will receive the instructions needed to complete a 0-3month Baby Bear Pom-Pom Hat (as shown in the pictures above), and unlimited technical support by yours truly ;-)
Your pattern will be available as a PDF download immediately after completing your purchase. You should receive it within 24hrs of ordering. Please let me know if you prefer it in Microsoft Word format, or physically mailed to you. I could also just copy and paste it into your email but you will loose the fancy formatting and the pictures would be attached separately.
You may sell the hats you make with my pattern,
but do not sell the pattern itself, and please do not sell them on
Etsy or within the state of Oregon. Please understand that this is
just to protect my ability to sell my original product locally and
within the Etsy community.
Thanks for viewing!
Handmade with love in Portland, Oregon
