Time to cosy up with another version of my Bear Hat This one is a slightly different fit to suit the style and a little more versatile - possibly more suitable for a boy as well as a girl, having said that, a few older girls - even women have expressed a keen interest. It uses the same double strand of fur/eyelash and 4ply yarn as it's such an excellent combo for cold weather - not heavy, and ultra warm, with the Trapper style flap this time, to keep those little ears cosy. Well, I say little ears - it comes in sizes up to adult. Who says only the kids should get to wear the fun stuff? It knits up on big needles in only a couple of evenings, and makes a great pressie - perfect as a Chridstmas stocking filler. AND..... with some facepaint and a steady hand it can become a quick Haloween Werewolf or Witches Cat costume, or for any other dress-up occasion. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting basic Garter stitch, following pattern instructions for increasing and decreasing, casting on and off Sewing a basic running stitch and gathering up Making up instructions and clear step-by-step construction diagrams are provided. GAUGE Approx 17 stitches -15cm Approx 20 roes - 12cm This is an approximate guide as this is loosely knitted and will vary slightly. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS It comes in three sizes: small (age 2-5), medium (age 6-12) and large (age 13-adult, to approx 58cm head circumference). These sizes are approximate and the fit is stretchy.
