Bear in Nightdress

A lot of followers of my blog love the cute bear in nightdress.
You can find the Dutch pattern here.
They were asking me for a English translation.
Today I made an translation for Victor and for all other followers of my blog.


























This bear was designed by Con A de Artisanía. 
Look for the original pattern HERE.
With permission of the designer, I made and shared the Dutch translation 
Now I share with you the English translation.
This pattern is only for personal use.
You only may share this pattern with permission of Con the Artisania.

Materials
- Pink and brown yarn (worsted weight)
- Black embroidery thread for the nose
- Two safety eyes (I used 8 mm)
- A small pompom or make yourself a ball
- Filling
- Needle with a blunt tip
- Scissors

My variation:
I used Catania cotton 3 and crochet hook 3.0 mm (3.5 mm for the first part of the hat).
My colors: natural No. 105 instead of 173 brown and blue instead of pink.

Leave a long tail to sew the hat on the head

Advice from me: 
Check after round 25 row by row how the hat fits the head.
The cap fits great or is becoming too loose?
Then go further with round 29.
Is your cap still too tight?
Crochet the rounds 26, 27 and 28 before finishing with round 29-33

Pompom at the tip of  the hat (pink)
(Or use a ready pompom)
Repeat the pattern of the tail.
Close the pompom with the yarn and a needle.
Sew the pompom at the tip of the hat.

  1. O, wat een schattig beertje.
    Ik ben ook een beertjes kopje aan het haken voor een rammelaar, maar de oogjes vind ik toch gevaarlijk voor de kleintjes, je weet maar nooit of ze die eruit kunnen halen, dus het krijgt geborduurde oogjes.
    groetjes,
    Loes
