Knit & Crochet, My Patterns


This year’s Halloween theme is Star Wars. One of the little boys wants to be a storm trooper, and the other will be Yoda, ready to be carried on Luke Skywalker’s back when he gets tired!

I know there are plenty of patterns out there for Yoda Hats, but this one is free for all!

You will need:

  • Materials: 1 skein Worsted Weight (4) yarn in light green

Caron Simply Soft Pistachio

Step 1: Make a Beanie

  • Use the hat pattern of your choice to make a beanie that fits the head of the child (or adult!) for whom the hat is intended.
  • Use the J-10/6.0mm hook and two strands of yarn to match the ears!
  • Before adding the ears, make sure to try on the hat!

Step 2: Make Yoda Ears.

  • Use the J-10/6.0mm hook and two strands of yarn. This will make nice stiff ears that won’t droop!
  • Leaving an 8″ tail, make a large slip knot. In the slip knot, Single Crochet 16. Pull on the tail to tighten.
  • Rounds 1-4: SC 16.
  • Round 5: [SC 6, sc2tog] x 2 (14 stitches)
  • Round 6: [sc 5, sc2tog] x 2 (12 stitches)
  • Round 7: [sc 4, sc 2 tog] x 2 (10 stitches)
  • Round 8: [sc 3, sc2tog] x 2 (8 stitches)
  • Round 9: [sc 2, sc2tog] x 2 (6 stitches)
  • Round 10: [sc 1, sc2tog] x 2 (4 stitches)
  • Slip stitch into the 1st stitch of the round. Cut yarn, leaving a 4″ tail. Using a yarn needle, thread yarn through each of stitch of the last round and cinch closed. Hide the yarn inside the ear.

Step 3: Attach Ears

  • Pin Ears to either side of the hat, about 1/2″ above the bottom.
  • Using a yarn needle and the long yarn tail at the base of the ear, whip stitch ear to hat, perpendicular to the rows.
  • Weave the loose end of the tail into the inside of the hat. Trim.
  • Repeat on the other side.

Step 4: Be Awesome

  • Wear your Yoda Hat as part of a costume, or for everyday awesomeness! May the force be with you!
