Yoda – a free pattern

Do, or do not.  There is no Try.

Yoda inspired hat for babies.

Yoda hat - free pattern

Materials

  • Bulky yarn that will use a 6mm (or J if using US measurements) hook.  I used Katia Alaska in moss green (17) for this project and the sizing is perfect.  Any bulky weight yarn should do the trick, as long as it uses a 6mm hook.
  • Embroidery needle to attach ears
  • Scissors
  • Stitch marker
  • A love of Star Wars

Skill Level

Beginner

Stitches used

  • Magic Ring – Here is a tutorial on how to make a magic ring
  • Half Double Crochet (HDC)
  • Single Crochet (SC)
  • Increase (INC) For a video tutorial on how to increase using a half double crochet stitch, check this out
  • Decrease (DEC) For a video tutorial on how to decrease using a half double crochet stitch, check this out

Notes

For this pattern I use American terms.  If you decide to use a different weigh yarn, no problem.  You’ll just have to add or remove one or two increase rows and perhaps some length.

This pattern is written in the round.  I’m not a fan of joining and chaining and a visible seam, but you can work that way if you prefer.

I’ve made three sizes; newborn, 6-12 months, and 12 months – 2 years.  I do have an adult version too, but will add that separately, later.

By all means, please feel free to sell items that you make from this pattern, but please do not sell this pattern or make changes and redistribute it claiming it as your own.  I would be forever grateful if you credit Miss Neriss when using this pattern – it’s important to all support one another.

May the force be with you, and if you spot any mistakes, please let me know!

Newborn Hat

R1:      7 HDC into a magic ring, pull tight to close the hole.
R2:      INC into each stitch around (14)
R3:      INC, 1HDC x 7 (21)
R4:      INC, 2HDC x 7 (28)
R5:      INC, 3HDC x 7 (35)
R6:      It gets a bit weird here. A normal increase round makes the hat too big, yet leaving it at R5 makes it just too small (for a premie you could skip R6 and go straight to R7).  Instead we have a reduced increase row: INC, 6HDC x 5 (40).
R7-13: HDC around (40)
R14:    SC around (40)
R15:    SC around (40), tie off and weave in ends.
