Despicable Me Minions Crochet Hat


Look!!! It's a Despicable Me Minion!! I know, I know... how freaking adorable, right???

I once again set out to make this without a real pattern to go by, and I think it turned out awesome! This hat is for a 1 year old, so I used a hat size that'll fit 12-24 month olds.

Hat:
Start off with an adjustable ring, and 13 dc in ring.
Round 1: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in same st as ch 3, dc twice in each dc around, sl st in third ch. {26}
Round 2: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc twice in next dc, (dc in next, 2 dc in next) around, sl st in third ch. {39}
Round 3: ch 3 (counts as first dc), (dc twice in next dc, dc in next 2 st) around, sl st in third ch. {52}
Round 4 - 8: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, sl st in third ch. {52}
Round 9: Change color, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, sl st in third ch. {52}
Round 10 - 11: Change color, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in each st around, sl st in third ch. {52}
Round 12: Turn hat so that the right side is facing out. ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st, and finish. {52}

Eye:
{White Part} - In an adjustable ring, make 17 tr, sl st into beginning ch and fasten off.
{Black Part} - In an adjustable ring, make 9 sc, sl st into beginning ch and fasten off.
{Grey Part} - Round 1: In an adjustable ring, make 17 tr, sl st into beginning ch,
Round 2: ch 1, sc around in each st, sl st.
Round 3: ch 1, sc around in each st in FRONT LOOP ONLY, sl st and fasten off.

Sew all of the pieces together, and onto the hat.

To make the hair pieces, I pulled up a strand of black yarn around one of the dc and tied it in a knot. Then cut to an appropriate length. You can do this as little or as many times as you'd like.


And that's it!! So very simple!!


As you can see, he loved the hat!! He didn't wear it long, so she didn't really fool around with it to make it fit perfectly. However, it looks as though I could have gotten away with making it a row or two longer. That might be something you want to keep in mind as you make one using the pattern above.

    1. I just edited it with a picture of the baby wearing it. If you're thinking of making it, it looks like you could probably add one or two more rows to the hat (depending on the baby of course).
