Do you frequently have a frequent hankering for berries, find yourself wandering through camp sites, and on occasion, sleep through the entire winter? Perhaps you were meant to be a bear.
The bear hat pattern is a mixture of knit and crochet. The hat is knit while the ears are crochet. The crochet portion is in chart form along with written instructions. A light brown and dark brown bear hat can be made with the amount yarn suggested.
Knitting: 24sts/ 36rows (16 sts/ 24 rows) = 4x4in/ 10x10 cm stockinette with size 3/ 3.25mm (8/ 5.0mm) needles. Crochet: 27sts/ 16rows (16sts/ 10rows) = 4x4 in/ 10x10cm in double crochet with size B/ 2.25mm (G/ 4.0mm) hook. Exact gauge is not crucial as long as the stitches are tight.
I taught myself to knit in 2005, crochet in 2006 and spin in 2010. It seems I have a habit of developing hobbies.
Fiber truly is a passion. I've worked at a wool mill, done knitting for a farmers market and currently work at a yarn shop. And like everyone else, I'm working on a book. But I figure anyone can start a book, the only thing that matters is that I finish mine.
