About The Project Name

Winnie The Pooh by Walt Disney Chorus should be the obvious choice, right? Indubitably!

About The Project

My niece-in-law asked me if I could crochet a hat like this…

Her plan is to take a similar picture with Mini-Mikey after he is born.

I was going to wing it, but happened to remember seeing a similar hat recently while surfing the interwebs, which was a relief because the last time I made baby hats, they were too small for the kid’s head!

About The Pattern

Sure enough…”Baby Bear” Simple Baby Beanie by Rachel Glassco. I chose not to do the red in the ribbing, per the pattern, instead choosing to following in pattern to end like the original picture above. Which, had to be an executive decision as mom was admitted to the hospital today.

Loved the measurement guides. Could have been a little clearer, but manageable.

About the Yarn

Blue Sky Fibers Organic Cotton

Fiber Content: 100% Certified Organic Cotton
Yarn Color:s 641 True Red and 638 Dandelion
Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted

Beautifully, rich hues. Nice to work with. Fiber halo-ing.

Ordered from Love Knitting, from whom I received twice the amount I needed – I will make no comment as to whom was negligent, as I do not possess that knowledge.

 

Winnie The Pooh Baby Beanie: Inception

Love Knitting Blue Fibers Worsted Cotton

At Mini-Mikey’s baby shower, Roxanne asked me to make a special hat for a photo shoot, where she will place the baby in a Hunny pot with the beanie…at least, I think that’s the plan.

I searched “mercerized cotton worsted weight” because I wanted something lustrous and this came up: Love Knitting Blue Sky Fibers Worsted Cotton. The colors – True Red 641 and Dandelion 638 – are perfect, but I am always hesitant to order online, due to extravagant shipping costs, I searched local yarn shops and discovered that out of the possible three stores near me: one was closed; one I was banned from; and the other had no cotton. The one I was banned from probably has what I want, but screw them! Besides this is for my grand/great nephew and I am willing to skip a meal for him – I shouldn’t miss it.

I will be using “Baby Bear” Simple baby beanie pattern, © Rachel Glassco 2015. I hope it comes out the right size. I have a problem with my baby hats not fitting. Too small last time. Wish me luck. Can’t wait for yarn to arrive because in order to avoid shipping, I threw in a set of crochet hooks for me.
