“She comes in colors ev’rywhere…”
Winnie The Pooh Beanie for Mini-Mikey, who’ll be here soon!
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 plans is to take a similar picture with Mini-Mikey.
I was going to wing it, but happened to remember seeing a similar hat recently while surfing the interwebs.
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.

I never know how big, or small, to make things for babies or infants, so I felt lucky to be able to measure the baby; I came up with 14 inch circumference for the head and the waist. Because I had never made a diaper cover, I chose to use a pattern. The one I selected was very easy and quick.
As for the hat: I improvised it. I had to started with a one-stitch-increase per row, but found that was getting too long. I think went to a three-stitch-increase per row, but that was too wide. It was the two-stitch-increase per row that was the winner. I think worked to a diameter of approximately 4.5 and then did six more rows in white for the brim, minus the increase. The whole hat is worked in half double crochets.
The obvious name of this project – Santa, Baby by Eartha Kitt – was most appropriate.
