TIP: This hat is the perfect base hat for all your embellishments, including little bear ears. To make ears for a baby bear hat, follow the instructions for R1 and R2 of the hat pattern below, finish off, leaving a yarn tail for sewing. Fold the small circle you just crocheted in half along the diameter (middle) and sew the open edges together onto the hat. You just crocheted a soft 3D bear ear. Repeat the instructions for the second ear.

  1. Hi Jennifer – the finished measurements for the hat in the pattern at the top:
    Finished Size
    0-3 months height approximately 5.5 inches X 13.5 inches circumference

    If you are using a different yarn though more than just the length will change the circumference will need to be adjusted as well. Unless you have the exact gauge I list in the pattern.

    The gauge I met in the pattern is: Approximately 2 rows per inch and 3 dc per inch

    To understand how hat math works I have very popular post here: https://oombawkadesigncrochet.com/crochet-hat-sizes-and-heights/

    It walks you through how to make hats in the round from start to finish.

    Best wishes, Rhondda

  2. Hi- measurements would be helpful. I am using a different weight yarn. Not sure how large to make it before I switch to 1 chain all around.

  3. Hi Jennie, yes it does 🙂 Please scroll down in the pattern to the “Supplies” section to find the yarn information: Yarn: Red Heart With Love 7 oz (198 g) ; 370 yds (338 m). Care: Machine wash warm on gentle cycle; tumble dry on low. Do not over dry; do not bleach; do not iron. This hat also works really well with Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. 7 oz (198 g); 364 yds (333 m).

  4. The pattern doesn’t say what thickness the wool is. Not everyone can get the brand of wool that is mentioned so you need to let us know the thickness!!
