Do. Or Do Not. There is no try.

There are so many cute geeky baby things out there. I can hardly stand it. It also bums me out that for some reason I did not make any for my boys as babies. They would have made adorable Yodas! Maybe I just hadn’t fully embraced the geek life at that point. I definitely wasn’t crocheting as much when the oldest was a baby. But I can make hats now and share the pattern so that other people can geek up their babies! 🙂

Place Inner Ear on top of the Outer Ear, SC evenly around the sides. It is not necessary to single crochet around the base of the ear.

Leave a long tail for sewing to hat.

My tip for sewing to the hat is to start at the top of the SC round (last round of the hat) sew down the Inner Ear side, then sew down the Outer Ear side by going up a row or two and then back down into the hat. It seems like this gives the most structure and support to the ears. Tightly pull the stitches on the top side of the ear to hold it in place. I probably oversew these attachments but I hate when they sag or don’t stay put. 

You can make this a girly little outfit by adding a simple flower and some legwarmers. 🙂
