It took me about four days (we're talking mom time) to finish the hat and then another night and day to do the ears and the face.
How beary cute is this!!
The finished product! So cute!!!
Cast on 70 stitches on size 4 round needles.
Knit the first row
Purl the next inch of material
Knit the rest of the hat.
Once the material is 6 inches long, start decreasing every 6th stitch until you have 8-10 stitches remaining and then bind off.
Buttons - 2
Using a tapestry needle, create the nose with three stitches using black yarn.
From the middle of the nose sew down and across to create the mouth.
Sew two black buttons on for the eyes.
size 6 straight needles
Cast on 10 stitches
knit across rows 1-4
Row 5 knit one, increase one, knit across to second to last stitch and then increase, knit one (now you have 12 stitches)
Row 6 knit across
For rows 7-10 repeat 5 and 6 until you have 16 stitches.
Rows 11-14 knit across
Row 15 (start the decrease) knit one, knit two together, knit across to last 3 stitches, knit two together, knit one
Rows 16-19 repeat row 15 until you have 6 stitches remaining
Bind off all stitches and leave a long end for sewing.
Using a measuring tape, measure down two inches from the center of the top of the hat. This is where you will start sewing the ears onto the hat.
