  28. Wendy Kerr says

    Thanks so much for this pattern! I have made a newborn one as well as adult size one for a high school senior portrait. Both were adorable and the clients loved them!! Thanks so much!

    Here’s one of the pics On our photography site….

  29. Hi Wendy,
    You make such a cute wild bear hat( because it brown colour).
    And thank you for sharing them with me.

  30. thank you for stopping by.

  31. Hi, I picked up some yarn today that is super bulky and recommends using size 9.0 mm crochet hook. I tried using a 6.0 mm like your pattern calls for and am having a hard time Crocheting with the yarn being so thick. Should I use a larger hook? Will it turn out? Thank you!

  32. You could change to bigger size of crochet hook as long as you got the gauage you are good to go.

  33. Thank you! Got a bigger hook, about to try it out again 🙂

  34. Thhat cool Catie, Love to see your creation.

  35. I have yarn that is 85 grams–will that work? Or should I use a 5 mm crochet hook with it? Thanks!

  36. They might work, let’s try that and if you got the guage. that will be fine

  37. Hi, this is my 3rd crochet project and 1st time pattern and I really want to make this hat for my 7mo old before all the cold wheather kicks in (bit late though), however I have the wrong wool I think (took me 3 evenings and 10 rounds to figure that out). I bought 50grams per 80 metres and use a 5,5 hook. I can’t get the gauge i think. Is there a way to fix this/work around this? Thanks!!

  38. Hi,
    I think maybe you crochet it to tight try to crochet not to tight, you get the guage this way. Please let me know if this work.

  39. I am having a little bit of trouble using the size 6.00mm crochet hook with Lion VBrand TWool Thick and Quick. I do like how it comes out though, but I wish it wasn’t so stiff. I think I may try using a large size hook, and see what comes of it. This pattern is awesome, and so adorable!

    Also, I didn’t note if you said so or not… but, can we sell our finished product? If not, that is perfectly fine too. 🙂 Thank you so much!


  40. Hi Jane,
    Thank you for your lovely comment and yes you can sell the finished product that you make. PS. YOu have a lovely blog.

  41. Awesome! I am working on an adult sized bear hat right now, and I’m hoping my method works out. 🙂
    Thank you so much! 🙂 My blog is not very popular yet, but I’m working on it. I’ll be uploading the photos of the baby bear hat soon. 😀 Again, thank you for this pattern!

  42. Thanks so much for this pattern and instructions! My hat turned out awesome!

  43. I am glad you love it.

  44. alicia hughes says

    I’m having a lot of trouble with the flaps. Do I slip stitch off and start a separate piece when done with hat??

  45. Hi Alicia,
    yes, that right just slip stitch off and start again by attach yarn in any part along side of the hat body and start from there.

  46. AliciamHughes says

    Thank you So much Jane! I’m almost done now. Can’t wait to give to my nephew!

  47. Hi Alicia, I am glad you like the hat.

  48. Hi! I loove your pattern. Found it a long time ago and finally i thought myself how to crochet enough to make it..8) Im just a bit confused about the ties..do i make a chain?
