Baby Beanie Hat with Bear Ears Free Pattern

Hello there!

Another week has started, which means that Christmas is getting close and since this is the time of the year when we are more giving, I decided to write the pattern for the baby beanie hat with bear ears, so you can make some of these cute hats and keep the littles ones all warm and cozy!
I know that there are several patterns out there, but I made up my own, I had my little guy close and I tried the beanie on as I was crocheting and since I ended up making so many of these, I know the pattern by heart.
This is a quick and easy project, you won't need a lot of yarn and it makes a great stocking stuffer! (Hey, if you don't crochet, but you still love these, they are available in my etsy shop!)

Yarn: Vanna's Choice (Aran weight)
Hook: US size H/5.00mm


Chain: ch
Slip Stitch: sl st
Half Double Crochet: hdc
Single Crochet: sc

Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring.
Round 1: 10 hdc
Round 2: 20 hdc
Round 3: Increase one hdc every 3 stitches, total 27 hdc
Round 4: Increase one hdc every 3 stitches, total 36 hdc
Round 5: Increase one hdc evry 9 sticthes, total 40 hdc
Round 6 - 15: One hdc in each stitch from the previous round.
Fasten off. Weave in.

Ear (make 2):

Ch 3, join with a sl st to form a ring. (It will be tight!)
Row 1: 5 sc
Row 2: 2 sc, 3 sc in the same st, 2 sc (total 8 sc)
Row 3: 1 sc in each st (8 sc total)
Row 4: 2 sc in the same st, 6 sc, 2 sc in the same st (total 10 sc)
Row 5: 1 sc in each st of previous row.
* Leave a long tail so you can attach the ears to the beanie hat.

Note: if you want the inside of the ear to be in a different color, make row 1 and 2 with a different color yarn.

  8. I'm curious about row 3. Am I doing a pattern of 1 hdc, 1 hdc, 2 hdc and repeat? Because doing it that way I come up a stitch extra. Doing it 1 hdc, 1 hdc, 1 hdc, 2hdc I come up a stitch short. Help?
