I finished up the last hat – the one that will go with the Fox and Friends quilt. I did consider making a fox hat, but I didn’t have the right shade of orange in the stash. So.. I decided to go with a bear instead (there are bears in the quilt, so it works)
The pattern is Bearly Bonnet. This is the third one I’ve knit, and it’s a pattern I love. So easy with an adorable result.
I didn’t have anything proper to model it on, so my fountain lady had to stand in. I used up the last of my Regia 6-ply tweed on this hat. (I got a sweater, hat, pair of fingerless gloves, and now this bonnet out of it, so that was a good run!)
Sadly…. as cute as the bonnet is, I think it’s going to be too small. It’s not a fault of the pattern (which as I said, is great!). I wasn’t thinking and made the smallest size. But the babe its going to is already born – and a few months old, already.
I’m going to dive back into the stash and see what I can come up with. I should be able to whip a slightly bigger one off before the weekend.
This one can get tucked away until there’s a smaller head to give it to.

Adorable! It is so hard to figure out baby head sizes. I’ve made baby sweaters that wouldn’t go over there big noggins.
that is so cute! Kids heads grow quickly–good idea to knit a larger size!
That is an adorable bear hat! At the rate you have been completing projects, we will probably see a larger one next week.
You seem to have a plethora of babies to gift for, so it won’t go unused.
So cute. There is going to be a happy bear baby out there someday. Meanwhile, you knit so fast another will be done quickly.
