This is a FREE pattern to make an adorable 'bear beanie' for a child.  These are wonderful gifts, and can be used in the winter for children undergoing chemo or other treatments, not only to warm their heads but to brighten their days! :)  ENJOY!

Now fold ear in half widthwise, and stitch onto head. (as in photo)

Rnd 1: work 10 hdc inside the ring.
Rnd 2: 2 hdc in each hdc (20 hdc)
Rnd 3: work 1 hdc in each hdc.
Find off leaving 8" tail of yarn.
I also stitched a line under the bears nose, in brown, and then added a line on each side of that for a smile.  (Optional)

Stuff nose with a little fiberfill or wool batting. Stitch onto face where shown in photo.

Eyes - using white
Ch 5
Turn and sc down one side.  Then 3 sc in top ch and continue in sc back down the other side of the chain. End off.  Make 2.  Add a couple of sts of black yarn for inside of eye.

Stitch onto face as shown - sideways.

Bow - rainbow, or any color scrap you wish to use (You can make the bow for the bears head if it is for a girl, or place at his neck, for a boy.)
Chain 50.
End off
Going through 2 hdc at top of hat, thread the 'thread' through. Now tie into a bow.
Or do the same at the neck.
