This Yoda beanie is designed for an adult male with a 24-inch head circumference. When laying this beanie flat, it measures 11 inches across and is just over 8.5 inches tall. If you need a different size you can add rounds or you can use your favorite beanie pattern and just use the Yoda ears from this pattern. I also have a free 3-6 month size Yoda hat crochet pattern available. This pattern is a custom fit for a family member. If you are not sure of what size you need, I would suggest checking out the size chart at the bottom of the post that I discovered on Crochet In Color.

Thank you for sharing a fun and out of this world hat pattern. I really enjoyed it and from that I have managed to also create a princess Leia hat as well. It will make our Schools open day much more fun and will sure to have heads turning and plenty of giggles 😀 I will post any pics on my Google+ page tonight and next Saturday … Thanks again 🙂 ♥
Hdc 2 together? What do you mean by that?
Jamie Nordman says
There is a really good video on you tube that shows this stitch easily done. I had to look it up myself.it’s hard to describe in words but it’s really easy once you see it.
My ears are to floppy, how can I fix it
Either double up your yarn or go down a hook size.
LINDA HAFF says
THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATTERNS I LOVE THEM QND LOVE TO MAKE THEM KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK THANKS AGAIN LOVE GRAMS
The ear instructions are confusing. Says to use two strands of yarn ??
If you hold two strands of yarn together, it makes it thicker, stronger and more stiff. Ideal for ears you want sticking out and not floppy.
Jamie Nordman says
Thanks for this great pattern! It’s been fun making them and they are really easy!. I just wanted to pass along a tip of my own if i can. I have difficulty sewing because of injuries to my hands. What i did was put the hat on an upside down bowl to sew on the ears. Makes it easier for me to build the hat and also to make sure they are placed evenly. (Had to redo the first one but it was funny!) Hope this helps anyone who needs it and good luck!
