~ Minion hat ~


I know I'm a little late to the party with these Minion patterns, but I couldn't resist.  :)

   - 2 oz. yellow
   - 1 oz. blue
   - small amounts grey and white

Size:  fits a 10 yr. old

Notes:
- I crochet tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your hook.
- the ch 2 at the beginning of rnds does not count as a stitch

    1. Hi. The first 6 rnds the hat will lie flat - at the start of rnd 7 there will be no more increases and the hat will cup up. I hope that helps. If not, you can email me a picture of your hat to dlyrs@juno.com

  8. Oh what a perfect hat! I'm making chemo hats for my (adult) friend and would love to inject humour where I can. I don't know how big a "10 year old" head is. What would you suggest to increase the size of this hat to fit an adult (bald) head? Thank you SO much!

    1. Thank you Donna. My 10 year old grandson's head is about the same size as mine (which is 22" around). :)

    2. Also - leave off the animal eye and sew on a button instead. The animal eye shank might scratch her head.
