YODA 015

Felted Baby Yoda Hat

Materials:
Size US11, 16” circular needle, and set of 5 DPNs
Green, feltable, worsted weight wool. I used Paton’s Classic Merino Wool in ’Leaf Green’ - 1 ball made 2 hats.
Yarn needle

Gauge: Before felting, 12 stitches and 16 rows = 4 inches in Stockinette stitch.
Felted gauge is not critical, as this is a felt-to-fit pattern.

Join, and work in K1 P1 rib for about 1.5 inches.
Knit all rounds until hat measures 6 inches from CO edge.

Work decreases as follows:
Round 1: (K13, K2tog, pm) across to end.
Round 2: (and all even rounds): Knit
Round 3: (and all odd rounds): (Knit to last 2 stitches before marker, K2tog) across to end
Repeat rows 2 & 3, switch to DPNs as necessary, continue until only 4 stitches remain.
Finish off by pulling the end of the yarn through the 4 remaining stitches.

Continue in I-Cord for 24 inches, finish off by pulling the end of the yarn through remaining 3 stitches.

Repeat on opposite side.

Tie in ends and felt to desired circumference.

Allow the hat to air dry completely.

To stiffen the felted ears, so they will stick out, make a non-toxic fabric stiffener by mixing Elmer’s glue with water until milky. Saturate EARS ONLY, and let dry into desired shape, curving in slightly for a more realistic look. The more stiffener you use, the more sturdy the ears will be. To keep ears from flopping over while drying, I used an adjustable pants hanger (the type with clips on the ends). You can either hang the hat or position it over a bowl or pot to dry.

ENJOY!

Hi! I ADORE this Yoda "hat", and I must make it...but I want to make it for an adult. I just can't wait around for my friends to procreate--it's too darn cute. I read that there were notes somewhere (on Ravelry perhaps) about how to adjust this pattern for adult sizing, but I haven't found it yet despite searching all day...can anyone direct me? Many thanks!

Mamma Look said...

Wonderful! Thanks for the pattern, I tried it out and my little guy looked perfect this Halloween!

Fantastic!!! Just had to make this for my little one. Such a fun hat to make and wear, might do one for my other two kids too, (and one for me if I could work out the sizing!!)

It would be helpful to know the yards/meters of yarn.
