We have a new baby (one of several) arriving soon in my family. I’ve never met this cousin, but we found each other on Facebook, She not only beautiful but I can just tell she’s a very good person as well. That made me want to knit for her new baby, see how that works? Time was drawing near for the birth so I suggested a hat and she agreed and thought it would be cute with bear ears on it. Too cute!
The pattern is the Pattern Cabled Teddy Hat by Marinda Lariz and I added my own ears. I crocheted the bear ears because I wanted them to look nice on both sides and stand up nice and tall. I didn’t even try the pattern ones, so I don’t know which is better. I just knew what I wanted.
Here is how you can make ears to put on any baby hat:
Leave a 6 inch tail and begin.
ch4 and dc 9x’s in first ch, ch1 and turn.
Repeat (sc, 2sc) to end, ch1 and turn.
slip stitch all the way back.
leave a 6 inch tail and fasten off.
Make 2 and sew on any hat.
