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.

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, worked at a yarn shop, and most recently been the general manager for a yarn company. In the winter of 2012, my pattern inspired by the constellations of the northern hemisphere, Celestarium, was put out by Twist Collective. In 2013 I put out my first book, Lit Knits, which contained 10 patterns inspired by classic literature. I don't see myself stopping any time soon!
