Baby Yoda with a PhD Hat

This one was a gift for a friend of mine, who had his PhD defense during the quarantine. Of course, no guests were allowed and he was supposed to wear a community mask as well as the professors!

You will need:

  • 3,5 mm and 6 mm crochet hook (I have crocheted the hat top with the smaller hook to make it harder and more stable)
  • black, white and green yarn, yellow string for the hat
  • scissors
  • stitch marker
  • 5 mm safety eyes (I crocheted them, using thiner black yarn)
  • sewing needle
  • fiberfill (I used yarn leftovers to stuff)

Abbreviations:

  • ch – chain
  • st – stitch
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • inc – 2 sc in 1 st
  • dec – crochet 2 sc together
  • X N – repeat N times
  • at the end of every round total number of stitches is shown
