Care Bear Hat: Free Crochet Pattern



Last week, on Halloween, I shared a picture of the Care Bear costume that I made for my daughter. Today I thought I would share the pattern for the hat. It is a toddler size, my daughter is 1 1/2 and it also fits my  2 1/2 year old.



You will need:

2 colors of yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in perfect pink, and white)
H crochet hook
Yarn needle

*ch 2 at the beginning of each round does not count as a stitch

Start with a magic circle
Round 1: ch 2, 9 dc, join to first dc (9 dc)
Round 2: ch 2, 2 dc in each stitch around, join to first dc (18 dc)
Round 3: ch 2, [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next] around, join to first dc (27 dc)
Round 4: ch 2, [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 2 stitches] around, join (36 dc)
Round 5: ch 2, [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 3 stitches] around, join (45 dc)
Round 6: ch 2, [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 4 stitches] around, join (54 dc)
Round 7: ch 2, [2 dc in first stitch, 1 dc in next 17 stitches] around, join (57 dc)
Round 8-12: ch 2, dc in each stitch around, join (57 dc)
Round 13-14: ch 1, sc in each stitch around, join (57 sc)
Finish off, weave in end

Ears (make 2)

With pink yarn

Start with a magic circle
Row 1: ch 2, 6 dc, ch 2, turn (6 dc)
Row 2: 2 dc in each stitch, ch 1, turn (12 dc)
Row 3: [2 sc in first stitch, 1 sc in next] around, ch 1, turn (18 sc)
Row 4: sc in each stitch, cut yarn leaving long enough for sewing to hat

With white yarn
Make rows 1-2 above then finish off leaving long tail for sewing

Place white ear on pink ear and sew on, I used a simple running stitch through only the top layer of the pink ear so that the white stitches did not show through to the back. After both layers of the ear are sewn together sew the ears to the hat. I sewed them across the 3rd-7th rows of the hat.

And now you have a Care Bear hat. If you are looking for a super easy and cute costume next year this is a great one.
