Basic Crochet Bear Beanie (Newborn)

Online Knitting Class





One of the things I wanted to do this year was reduce my yarn stash. The best way to do this is to use it :) When I found this yarn I just knew I had to turn it into a Bear Hat. 

Once I had finished that I thought it needed to be a set. So that's how the booties came about. You can find the pattern for these here: http://www.knotyournanascrochet.com/2015/01/basic-baby-crochet-booties.html

It's a quick and easy set that I am sure will be well loved by everyone.
