Little Blue Bear - Newborn - Free crochet Pattern

Good evening beautiful people, Hope everyone had a fab day!
Today, I've got my very first newborn sized free hat pattern! Ok so I know there are a lot of bears out there, but this one here is mine :D I originally planned to make it preemie sized, was aiming for 34/36 weeks but I got a little over excited somewhere and it turned out bigger then I was planning. Thats ok, its a happy accident  and hopefully the first of many hats and who knows what else! I've got a double strand DK owl hat in the works as well. If you have any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to drop them here.
