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.

Yarn Color:s 641 True Red and 638 Dandelion

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

I finally got around to converting Maylin’s Wingspan into single crochet. As it turned out I did have my counts right, thought they could always be adjusted to one’s liking; I used the guidelines set forth by Maylin.

A feature that occurred in crochet, which does not present when knitted, is the spines that are created when crocheting the shorted rows. This may make blocking a bit more difficult considering the man-made fibers used to test the conversion. I was just so excited to have finished a long overdue project.

I had to insert the blue wing because I did not have enough of the red to complete the project in one color. Fortunately, I had a duplicate yarn – at least I think they are the same yarn – in a different color, but the same hue. These two colors remind me of bluejays and robins, hence the name of the shawl – Fly, Robin, Fly – by Silver Convention.
