Notes

My Inspiration

Making two hats for my sister and her little munchkin. Used sizing for woman and kid and I am hoping it isn’t too big or too small….but just right.

For embellishments:

♥ I made two big and two slightly less big pom pom’s for the ears.

♥ For baby bear’s mouth I cast on 7 stitches, increased 2 stitches at the start and end every other row until I got to 15 stitiches, continued on with 15 stitiches for a few rows and then decreased down to about 9 stitches. I wasn’t 100% happy with how this looked so I folded the edges under until I liked the shape and stitched it in place. Then I embroidered the nose and mouth.

♥ White button’s I had on hand for the eyes.

♥ Then I giggled for about 15 minutes because it was just so beary cute!!
