“Bears love honey and I’m a Pooh Bear, so I do care, so i’ll climb there; I’m so rumbly in my tumbly, time for something sweet!” ~Winnie the Pooh
This hat is for the Silly Old Bear in your life - big or small!
It’s a sweet treat for the knitter too; even the largest size takes only a few hours to whip up in a chunky weight yarn, and you’ll love the sweet taste of the honeycomb cables!
Each hat takes less than a full skein of the recommended yarn, so you can even add a pom pom to the top if you want!
The recommended yarn is slightly on the lighter end of bulky weight, and some testers were able to achieve the correct gauge by holding two strands of light worsted weight yarn together.
This pattern has been thoroughly tested and edited for clarity and quality - testers overwhelmingly enjoyed the quick knit, and recommended it for charity knitting, quick gift knitting, or a sweet break from a small gauge project!
