Blog With Friends- Brr Brigade- Minion Hat with Ear Protection

My project is a minion hat with ear protection. I've got a friend who's daughter loves minions just as much as I do (Her favorite is Dave). And they live in an area that gets cold enough to warrant a hat like this. I wanted to do one that was a little more detailed than my earlier versions:

They were cute and all, but I love the blue overalls that the minions wear. So, I developed this one:

This hat is made very similar to the other ones, I just added more to them. By giving them overalls (sort of), I was able to add ear protection to the hats with the blue yarn.

Included in this post is a PDF Pattern. There's a lot of little parts to make on this, so I decided not to post the whole pattern here only the PDF link.

  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this hat!!!! I wish I knew how to crochet!!!!!

  2. I always hated to wear hats as a kid. Maybe if they had gotten me a cool minion one..?

    1. I hated them, too! Now, if it's cold, I don't care about my hair, my head had better be warm!

  3. I love your Minion hat, Eileen. The addition of the overalls is perfect!

  4. I think I'll be sending this on over to my mother-in-law.... I NEED one of these hats!

    1. LOL! Maybe you could convince her since they don't take long to make.
