Baby Bear Beanie

I know some of you are waiting for the recipes from yesterday's feast, but I just had to show off my newest beanie.  Isn't it cuuuuuute!!  If you can crochet even just a little, you can make it too.  The instruction video is on my earlier post called I Learned How to Crochet!   I couldn't follow it exactly 'cause for some reason . . . dunno what I'm doing wrong . . . but I'm always off in my measurements.  When she says I should have six stitches left to go, I got twelve.  When she says it should be 5 inches across, I'm like 6 or 7 inches.  I keep having to unravel . . .  but I finally finished it and it's sooooo cute!

Grayce this was a multicolored cotton yarn. First time using cotton for me, and it was so much easier to work with . . . not as stiff.

You are totally awesome...you go all out when you find a new interest. Love it!!

I am home from my Alabama trip. It is super HOT here...just like being in Alabama except for the humidity...

jalna said...

Hahahaha. I know Betty . . . I go berserk! It's not really hot here yet . . . kinda windy in fact.

Susan said...

I would buy this for my grandson! He'd look as cute as a bear!! Now why did I know you were going to do one with ears next!!!

jalna said...

Susan, try make um! You're only making circles. The hat itself is kinda a big circle, the ears are two circles folded in half, and the snout is a circle with stuffing underneath.
