Winnie The Pooh Inspired Hat & Diaper Cover - Free Crochet Pattern


Every single time I spot a familiar yellow bear I can't help but start humming his iconic song which goes a little something like this... "Winnie the pooh, chubby little cubby all stuffed with fluff, he's winnie the pooh!"
Ahhh, doesn't that bring back some wonderful childhood memories?

If you'd like to continue getting in touch with your childhood maybe try crocheting a Mickey Mouse set or a hungry Cookie Monster hat

  9. I was wanting to do this, as I started the diaper cover I noticed a mistake...in row 4 it shows 49 sts then in row 5 it says 59 st. How the heck do you get 59 out of 49? Do I need to add some sts to row 4? Row 4- Ch2, 1 dc in same st. 1dc in next 49 sts.
    Row 5 - 7- Ch1, 1 hdc in same st. 1 hdc in next 59 sts.
    Row 8- Sl st in next 11 sts. Sl st in next st, ch 1, hdc2tog. 1 hdc in next 22 sts. Hdc2tog, turn your work. (24 sts)

    2. I think it is a typo. When looking at the picture of the diaper I don't think it goes out that far. Pretty straight. But first time doing this pattern.

  10. Hi and thank you for this pattern, one question please...does the diaper pull up only, are the buttons just to fasten the flaps together?

  11. Bonjour, Lovely, Can i put the link, and also a photo on my blog ?

  12. Did anyone ever get an answer to Nancy's question about going from 49- 59 stitches in one row?
    It doesn't show you increasing in row 4.
    I wanted to make this for a shower gift by week 3 of August.

  13. Did the directions ever explain how to close the diaper cover? I see the two buttons in the photo but could not find instructions on how to attach them and did not see button holes worked into the pattern.

  14. Thank you so much for sharing. I've always loved Pooh too. My oldest book is from 1961, I loved reading it to my kids. My youngest sons baby theme was all Pooh stuff and had this been around back then he certainly would have been wearing it. But I will be ready for any grands that come along now. :)
