A few days ago, Niftynnifer posted a new free crochet pattern for her Beautiful Blue Bear Hood. The name for it was so fitting, because it really is BEAUTIFUL!
I wanted so badly to make it… but I didn't have the correct yarn on hand. But like most of us crafters, we find a way! I combined a medium/worsted weight yarn with Fun Fur. I also had to adjust the ears to be smaller.. because I was running out of the Fun Fur.
The pattern is easy to follow and is written really well! If I make this hat again, I will probably order the yarn that she calls for with the pattern.
Although my Blue Bear Hood isn't nearly as stunning as Niftynnifer's, it's still beautiful! I thought my gauge was correct, but obviously it is smaller than hers. The good news- my daughter loves it and cannot wait to put it to good use this winter. It is so warm and soft! Perfect for going outdoors during those Arctic Air weather blasts we kept having last winter. So this winter, we are prepared!
