Simplicity Bear Beanie Crochet Pattern

Simplicity Bear Beanie Crochet Pattern

After I designed the Lizzie Bear Beanie, I knew I needed a beanie that was just a little simpler and a smidge quicker to work up, so meet the Simplicity Bear Beanie.  This beanie is just like it sounds, it is simple to work up and great for a beginner to join the Lizzie Bear Project or an advanced crocheter to whip out a bear beanie in about 30-45 minutes (of course with no interruptions). The Simplicity Bear Beanie is super simple with it's texture that is universal for boys and girls and can be made in any color combination.
