Cute as a bear crochet hat
Create this cute as a bear hat! So adorable and sure to bring even more cuteness to your little one! This is a simple pattern that works up quickly. The hat is sized for a small child (3-5 years). You can easily make the hat smaller by skipping row 4 and continuing with rows 5-11 or adding another increasing row after row 4. Pair this with my cute as a bear mittens for a complete set!
This pattern uses medium worsted weight yarn and size H and I crochet hooks. The final hat measures 7.5″ across the top and 8″ long.
