I’ve made this simple baby Yoda hat for several friends over the years. The impending arrival of baby girl means it was time to make one for myself. I knew I wanted to add a twist to the pattern to customize the hat. That twist turned out to be a simple seed bow. The hat turned out so cute, I decided to make a toddler size hat for a friend. The Ravelry patterns used in this project were listed at no charge by their respective designers.
The base of the baby Yoda pattern was designed by Shinah Chang. I followed her directions exactly to create the infant hat and adjusted the cast on measurements to fit a toddler size hat. As you finish the hat, make sure to follow her final steps to fold over the ears.
The ribbon was made following the pattern by Buttons and Pickles and can be found, here. I followed their directions for the toddler size hat and adjusted the pattern to cast on 9 stitches for the infant hat.
- Knit the Yoda hat and ribbon as instructed in the Ravelry pattern.
- Attach the baby Yoda ears to each side of the hat. As you attach the ears, make sure to follow her final steps to fold over the ears.
- Next, attach the ribbon to one side of the hat.
- Finally, wash the hat and stretch the hat on a set of blocking mats. Allow the hat to dry overnight. I use a set of blocking mats similar to THESE.
The finished project is just adorable and I can’t wait to see how these look on baby girl. I’ve got a few other fun hats planned! In the meantime, check out a few of my other knitting posts.
