Baby Bear Set
My cousin sent me a picture of a cute outfit and I replicated it from the pic for her baby shower. It’s SO sweet! Here is the picture I referenced, unfortunately the item is no longer in stock on Etsy so I can’t credit the creator. If you know whose pattern it is, let me know so I can give proper credit! All photos below are from the set I made – I didn’t write down a pattern give a “recipe” for the items if people want to know roughly how they were constructed!
- Worsted weight yarn: I used Vanna’s Choice Yarn in Grey Marble and Barley, about 3/4 of a skein for each, purchased from Michael’s Canada
- Gerber’s newborn short-sleeved onesie purchased in a pack here
- 4.5 mm hook
- Tapestry needle
- Brown thread and sewing needle
- Black embroidery thread
The base of the hat was made with dc, with standard increases of 12 st per round. I think I made it increase until there were 40 st per round as that would work out to ~14″ circumference with my gauge. Once it was close to long enough I did a few rounds of sc. Then I made 2 sc circles for each ear (1 brown, 1 grey) and joined them with a round of sc in grey and sewed them in place. Easy peasy!
For these I made the band first, working vertically. I tried a couple different methods but ultimately decided to do rows of sc in the back loops only to create the rib. Then I joined the grey and worked top-down in double crochet. Once I got to the crotch I shaped the legs, finishing off with a couple rounds of sc and doing some sc2tog in the last round. Then I picked up the second leg and did the same thing.
The whole outfit turned out so great and I am so excited to see pictures of my new little cousin wearing it!! If you have any questions I’ll do my best to answer them in the comments! Please please please if you find the owner of the original pattern that the pin was based on, please let me know so I can give credit and link to the pattern!
