I received an e-mail the other day from someone who asked if I could crochet a Yoda hat for a baby who is due any day to some die-hard Star Wars fans. I was up for the challenge and came up with this cute little earflap beanie with Yoda ears :o)
I can't re-post the pattern but will link to the patterns I followed.
The earflap hat with chin strap ties was crocheted in 0-3 month size following THIS pattern from Tara at her blog Easy Makes Me Happy.
I purchased the ear pattern from Tara's Etsy shop: Mamachee. For only $5.50 she is selling a PDF pattern that includes a collection of embellishments of different sizes and shapes for eyes, noses, ears, spikes, horns, antennae, teeth and a little bow. It is well worth the money!
This is the first time I used Waverly yarn and loved how ultra soft it was. The color I used is called "willow" and it was absolutely perfect for a little Yoda.
I'm not a Star Wars fan, but this hat is so cute, I think I need to make one for my little guy :o)
