Newborn Teddy Bear Hat Crochet Pattern

"A day without a friend is like a pot without a single drop of honey left inside." - Winnie The Pooh
Earlier today I had no clue what to write about in this blogpost until I read that perfect little quote. As stuffed with fluff as Winnie is, I have to admit he can be quite the philosopher!
Babies can't help but fill our honey pots drop by drop with memories, silly smiles and lots of cuddly bear hugs.

  2. This is too cute! All of your newborn hats are so adorable and I've wanted to make some, but I don't know how to convert sizes! That's been the only thing stopping me from making practically all of them lol. Do you have any tips for making these hats for a two year old?
