Bumpy Bear Crochet Beanie – Teddy Bear Hat – Free Crochet Pattern


This Bumpy Bear Crochet Beanie pattern teaches you how to Crochet The Raspberry Stitch and then how to use it to make this very textured Bear beanie. I set out to design this stitch so we crocheter’s could have a version that looked just as good as the knitted Raspberry Stitch. I think it makes the bear hat look more pelt like and gives it a great texture!

If your making the ears for an adult size hat and you want bigger ears just add more rows here.





Sl st into next st and ch 1, Cut tail, leave long tail to sew onto hat. Sew ears on before making earflaps.





Flatten hat so your ears are straight. Making sure your flaps are going to be even, count from corner, over 6 sts on each side and mark for a total of 12 stitches. (If your making a baby hat, mark 10, if adult mark 14.)




Round 1
Attach your yarn where the right side of the hat is facing you and work 1 sc in each of the 12 sts.

ch 1 and turn, work 1 sc in all 12 sts

Lay your hat flat again and recount out 12 sts on other side, attach your yarn with right side facing you and repeat earflap.





Cut several long pieces of yarn, about 28 or so, depending on how thick you want your braids to be, and separate then into two sets of 14.





Fold in half and attach one of the 14 strands to the right side of the flap by pulling up a loop, then pulling the tail through. Tighten, do the same for other 14 strands.


Separate into 3 even strands and braid. When braid is at desired length tie at least 3 knots with the braids to secure. Cut excess tails, leaving a small pom pom at end. Repeat for other flap.


Make sure to check to see if the second braid is even with the first before tying your knots.
