Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Felted Baby Yoda Hat #YarnAlong #Knitting

Felted Baby Yoda Hat #YarnAlong #Knitting

This year, I plan on taking Charis and Justin trick or treating, but I refuse to pay tons of money on a costume. So, I decided to knit part of their costumes. I bought some green wool yarn at a Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store a few years ago. I decided to knit a Felted Baby Yoda Hat for my son. He'll wear green pants, a long sleeve white onesie, and the yoda hat. Out of pocket money spent on his costume = <$2

10/8: I cast on 72 stitches. K1P1 for 1 1/2 inches.
10/9: Knit until 6.5 inches from cast on edge. In order to make hat less pointy, round 1 started decreasing 6 stitches/row {Knit 10 K2tog}.
10/13: Cast off today. Right now it’s in the washer starting the felting process. I hope it felts down enough. The circumference is 24 inches, and it’s 12 inches from the cast on edge to the peak of the hat. 
10/14: After washing, It felted nicely, but it's still a wee bit big on Lil' J. I threw it into the washer again tonight. Hopefully, it will felt even more, but not shrink too much.
What are you knitting or reading?


  1. Lovely! Your picture is just precious ;-)

  2. I love that little hat! Our son is going as an Ewok, using a bear outfit we inherited and then draping a brown tshirt over it.

  3. Cute! Is Charis going Stars Wars themed too? That's what the boys are doing, I was tempted to do the yoda hat for Amelia, but couldn't bring myself to do anything that isn't girlie now that I finally have a girl :)

  4. Absolutely adorable! I've been looking for a cute baby hat for my next project, and I think I've found it.

  5. This is adorable! And I love the color

  6. This is sooooo cute! I have never tried a felted project, do you like doing them? Find it more difficult than your typical knitted project?

  7. That'a adorable! I actually never thought about felting a beanie before, maybe I should give it a try :) And I know this is for a baby hat, but I'm thinking about maybe making one for my sister, who's a big Star Wars fan :)
