Please do not sell my patterns or say they are your own. You are free to do whatever you want with the finished item. If you are selling them online please link back the pattern and give me credit.

    4. I wanted to make this for an adult who is crazy about Star Wars. How can I adjust this pattern to fit an adult? In US standards.
      Love your site!

    5. Hi Libby,

      I would suggest finding an adult beanie you like and just attaching the ears.

    1. Hi there, you can either find a basic beanie pattern and add the ears or go up a hook size. Going by the chart I use you will want your increase circle to be 6 inches. If you get to round 5 and you are still under 6 inches I would add a few increases in round 6. You will also need to add a couple more dc rounds so when finished your hat will be 7.5 inches from top to bottom. I hope this helps.

  8. I must be stupid. I cant understand how to increase for the ears.
    HELP please

    1. To increase it is the same as the hat. Just place two sc into the same st. Here is a video that might help you out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zKgIe3Yu-4

  9. I'm trying to make this for a newborn. Decided to start on the ears first to see how big they would turn out. I'm on round 17 now. Using a 3.75 mm hook. I may have to tweak the pattern some. Any tips?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,
      With the ears I would probably just do row 18, then go straight to row 23 to shorten them a little bit.

      For the hat I would find a pattern that is newborn size with that hook. I don't have any patterns using that hook size and I would be afraid it would turn out too small if you used my newborn hat pattern.

    2. Oooh that makes sense! Why didn't I think of that? Thank you so much. My friend is so excited to get this, and I can't wait to see the end result. (:

  10. hi can you please help me i'm doing the ears on yoda and i'm having a problem understanding the rounds. for example round 12 says sc around (21sc). round 13 say to 2 sc, 2 sc in the next 2 stitches (28sc). my question is should i do after i do 21 stitches around should i be doing just 2 sc, 2 sc in the next 2 stitches, then go to round 14 or am i to do 2 sc, 2 sc inthe next 2 stitches then cont- until i reach 28 stitches please help so i know which way to go. thank you Laruth

    1. Hi there,

      When you see the numbers in brackets at the end of the rows they are the stitch counts you should have when you finish that round. So you do 2 sc, sc in next 2 stitches until you reach the beginning.

      So if you mark each beginning stitch of the round with a marker you should know when you need to start the next row. I hope that helps

  11. I love love love how the Yoda ears turned out! I posted pictures on my Ravelry account (britt83). Since I made it for a newborn, I did rounds 1-17, then skipped to rounds 23-25. Also used an E hook instead of G.

    Thank you so much for sharing your pattern! :)

  12. I am loving how it is turning out so far! My son saw this on ravelry and HAD to have it for his preschool graduation. I've finished the hat and one ear and they are shaped perfectly!! The hat pattern wasn't too tough to adjust just a little bigger for his head. I just used a worsted yarn and added a few increases (okay..I actually just messed up round four, but it worked out perfectly, thank the crochet goddess).

  15. I made this for my grandson with a few adjustments for size. It turned out really well. I would love to send you the picture. I took it with my Ipod and I don't know how to put it on here but I could email it to you.
    I had a couple questions. The hat pattern is written as if it is not a continuous spiral. You mention the chain 2 at the beginning of each row but not a slip stitch to end each row. Is that how you meant it to be? Then on the ears, it reads more like it is done in a spiral fashion. Did you do them differently than the hat? Thanks, Idy Kiser

    1. Hi there, I would love to see a picture. knotyournanascrochet@gmail.com

      Yes I think I need to add join with a sl st at the end of each round of the hat. The hat is joined but the ears are a continuous circle like you mentioned.

      Delete
    2. I ended up using the continuous spiral for the hat part too because I am lazy. :) Idy

  17. On the magic circle, is it a sc or dc circle, and how many of them in the circle?

    1. Here is a great tutorial on how to do the magic circle http://www.craftyminx.com/2011/10/crochet-school-lesson-16-working-in-the-round-1.html. Then all you need to do is do round 1 into the circle. So ch 2 (counts as first dc) and then 11 dc into the circle.

  18. Just if anyone has any questions 23 is SC2tog and then SC in the next 2 stitches. This had me stumped for a bit

  19. This hat is fantastic I want to do it for a young two year old is there anyway you have a pattern to make the ears a little smaller?

    1. Hi, thanks. I suggest just shortening them a little. So do round 18 and then move straight to 23.

  24. I'm combining the ears from this pattern with a base hat to make a Yoda hat for my dog. But something's not adding up on the ears instructions. As I understand the increases, you only do 2 single crochets into the first stitch, then single crochet into each remaining stitch. I end up short on stitches for every increase row.

    So..Row 3 - 2 sc in first stitch, then single crochet around 5 remaining stitches - that adds up to only 7 stitches.
    Row 5 - 2 sc in first, sc around remaining 8 stitches - that's only 10 stitches. (And since you're really short from row 3, you'll only get 9 stitches.)

    I'm adapting by increasing at even intervals along the round, but something is definitely missing here??

    ReplyDelete

    1. You want to repeat the instructions until you reach the end of the round.

      So for round 3: 2 sc in first st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st (9)

      Round 5: 2 sc in first st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st, sc in next st,2 sc in next st, sc in next st, 2 sc in next st (14)

      Basically the repeats stop at the start of the next round. Make sure to mark with a stitch maker.

    2. Thanks for the reply. I actually found that tip on Ravelry, where someone had commented about those rounds needing to be repeated. I just finished the little hat today, and it's so cute! Thanks for the great ear pattern. Most of the others I saw were just flat and very floppy and plain. I like that these look 3D. There is even enough body that I could bend the tips to look just like Yoda's.

  25. For the last row of the ears I pressed the ear together and single crocheted the two layers together to make it easier to sew the ears on.

    Thanks for sharing the pattern.

  26. I just made this for my Grandson, it turned out so cute! Thanks for the pattern. It is easy to follow. I like the tip about single crocheting the two layers together for the last row, I had a hard time attaching the ears (carpal tunnel) and this may make it easier.
