At the beginning of June, I announced that I was going to crochet the Baby Bear Crochet Hoodie Pattern designed by Lorna Miser at Red Heart. I am so happy I picked this pattern to make!

What a fantastic project! I really enjoyed making this hoodie. The written instructions were extremely easy to follow and because the hoodie is crocheted in one piece from the top down I did not have any seams to sew together at the end. You only need to weave in 8 ends and the buttons work with the spaces between the double crochet stitches so you don’t even need to worry about buttonholes!

Once you have crocheted the main body of the sweater you go back to the spaces you left for the sleeves and you rejoin your yarn and crochet the sleeves right on the hoodie! The hood is also added in the same fashion.

If you want a cute little sweater for a baby then you should try this pattern.  It worked up so easily and the finished project is simply adorable.

The Baby Bear Crochet Hoodie was designed by Lorna Miser and is available in 3 baby sizes.

Instructions are included for babies aged 6 months, 12 months and 18 months.

6 Months. Finished chest: 20 inches (51 cm). Finished Length: 10.5 inches (26.5 cm)
12 Months. Finished chest: 22.5 inches (57 cm). Finished Length: 13.5 inches (34.5 cm)
18 Months. Finished chest: 24.5 inches (62 cm). Finished Length: 16.5 inches (42 cm)

The finished length does not include the hood.

The pattern is written in U.S. Crochet terms and it is listed as an Easy level project and I found it was very easy to follow.

You only need 1 ball of Red Heart Bunches of Hugs yarn to make the project. The Bunches of Hugs yarn is Tested Safe for Harmful Substances and perfect for babies.

These are the supplies I used to make my baby bear hoodie:

This adorable baby sweater is so simple to crochet! I’m totally loving it!

If you have ever wanted to crochet a garment this is a great project to start with because it is very straightforward. The pattern works up quite quickly. I spent one day working on this while the kids were at school. We were having some drilling done outside and the noise was driving me crazy so I couldn’t concentrate on writing blog posts or designing. I guess it could be considered a forced day off 🙂 So I made this little Hoodie while I watched Netflix shows. It is not a complicated pattern and because it uses simple stitches it was very relaxing to crochet.

  1. Hi Patti, No I don’t think a video has been done for this pattern yet. Sometimes Marly Bird has videos of the Red Heart Patterns. I saw she had the hat and diaper cover ones available. You may want to ask her if she could film a video for this pattern – she works with Red Heart on social media so it could be something she could add 🙂 All the best, Rhondda

  2. Hi Jean, the hoodie will lay completely flat. Mine is not gathered. When I took the photo I put the back of the head section flat and made it show the depth of the hood by standing the front up as though a head were inside. Unless there is a head in there it would be completely flat. When someone is wearing it though it should look right 🙂 Hope this helps! Have a lovely day, Rhondda

  3. Hello, I just finished the hoodie, did the “seaming”, and the hood doesn’t look like a hood – no shape at all. This pattern seemed so easy, and it’s my first attempt at an item like this – I just don’t know what to do. In the picture, the hoodie part that goes around the face looks a little gathered, mine is flat.
