We Bare Bears Beanie (knit)

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
    Simple but yet very stylish; for boys and girls of all ages. You can comfortably wear it during any season depending on the yarn you used and the weather, of course. This is an easy-to-knit beanie if you know the basics knit, purl and k2tog.

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
Child (6yrs - 10yrs) [19" to 20" head circumference]
Teen/Small Adult [20" to 21" head circumference]
Adult (men) [21" to 23" head circumference]

MATERIALS
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Main Color and small amounts of black, white, brown, red, darker tone of red, charcoal gray
*DPN's or Circular Needles: 4.5mm & 5.0mm
*Stitch Marker to mark your rounds
*Tapestry Needle

GAUGE
Using 5.0mm needles...  4.5 stitches x  6 rows = 1"
Don't forget to check your gauge.

PATTERN NOTES
  This pattern can either be knitted when making the hat or duplicate stitched on afterward; the choice is yours. Here's a great video on how to duplicate stitch; HERE.

STARTING the BEANIE
CO 80 (90, 90) sts on 4.5mm needles with main color yarn.
Place a marker and join in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches.
Do ribbing (k1, p1) for 1 inch (approx. 6 rounds).
Change to larger needles and proceed knitting for 4 (4.5, 5) inches. This will give you approx. 27 (32, 37) rounds. Please follow the graph to know in which rows to do the color changes.

SHAPING the CROWN
  Rnd 1: k8, k2tog around
  Rnd 2 and all even rounds: knit around
  Rnd 3: k7, k2tog around
  Rnd 5: k6, k2tog around
  Rnd 7: k5, k2tog around
  Rnd 9: k4, k2tog around
  Rnd 11: k3, k2tog around
  Rnd 13: k2, k2tog around
  Rnd 15: k1, k2tog around
  Rnd 17: k2tog around
Leave a tail (up to 8"). You will use a tapestry needle to thread the tail through the last remaining stitches on your needle. After removing the needles from the stitches, pull tightly to close the top hole. Lastly, hide the tail inside and weave it in.

The grid lines on the pattern graph may look uneven on your monitor but will print out evenly.

NOTE: The ears are worked all in one piece and then folded in half.

Cast off all stitches. Weave in the ends.
Fold the ear in half along row 13. Using the 3.75mm (F) crochet hook, single crochet along the entire ear to close it off. F/O, weave in all ends.
Another method you can use if you're not comfortable crocheting, use a tapestry needle and whip stitch along the entire ear to close it off. 


ASSEMBLE
     I recommend pinning the pieces before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people prefer to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I use matching thread).
     EARS...lay out the beanie flat and find the position you like best.

Note: right-click on the image and open the image in a new tab to enlarge and print out.
The grid lines on the pattern graph may look uneven on your monitor but will print out evenly.
Child size is up to the red line.

Panda Earflap Beanie (toddler-small adult)

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Channeling my inner panda with this adorable crochet beanie! Who says warmth can't be cute?

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
Toddler (12 months - 3yrs) [18" to 19.5" head circumference]
Child/Small Adult [20" to 21.5" head circumference]

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size: 3.75mm (F) & 5.0mm (H)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: White & Black
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Tapestry needle
*Matching thread
*2 white buttons (diameter of 11mm)

GAUGE
3 hdc stitches x 2.5 rows = 1"
At the end of round 8, laying flat = 6.25" in diameter
Don’t forget to check your gauge.

PATTERN NOTES
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 The ch 2 at the beginning of each round counts as 1 hdc.
 You slip stitch on the top of the chain 2.
 When a round or row mentions “around/across” you will be working that whole sequence from that round/row around the entire piece. (EX: sc in next st, 2sc in next st, around = sc, inc, sc, inc,…)

SPECIAL STITCHES
Half Triple Crochet (htr) - Y/O hook twice, insert hook into stitch & pull up a loop (4 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru 2 loops (3 loops remaining), Y/O hook & pull thru the 3 remaining loops.
Invisible join - this VIDEO explains how to do this technique.
Single crochet 3 stitches together (sc3tog) – is a decrease over 3sts. Insert yarn thru 1st st, y/o pull thru, insert thru 2nd st, y/o pull thru, insert thru 3rd st, y/o pull thru, & y/o pull thru all 4 loops on hook.
