I’ve been meaning to share this for a while now, I finished a fun nerdy knitting project around November time; and it didn’t really fit in with the Christmas content! This was a fun project, trying something new, and creating something just for myself!
I’d no secret I’m a tad on the nerdy side, and I’m a total Star Wars fan, though I’ll confess to preferring the original trilogy overall. I’m not a huge fan of every film, but I’m not here to start an argument over which is the best or the worst, I’m here to talk about adorable and a bit silly; crafty; nerdy knitting…
I’d actually had the yarn and handwritten “pattern” for this for a few years, and just never actually got around to making it! The original pattern was a fox hat; which a friend bought on Etsy. I wrote the pattern out; so I could use the measurements for my own idea! I sized it down a little; altering the turnup, and didn’t use a second colour; which was in the original pattern. I also altered the length of the ears to create YODA!
I purchased the yarn, way back; Cygnet super chunky yarn, in Meadow Green. I needed two balls. Of course once I purchased it, the yarn sat in my stash, never getting used, because I was determined to use it for the hat!
At the time however I’d never even learned basic stitches, bar knit and purl stitch! Eventually I learned to k2tog (this was it!) though of course; the project; of course, got lost in the pile, and so on; until I actually found it again and decided to actually knit it!

It’s quite mad isn’t it. I don’t even know just where I’d wear it really, though I’ve worn it out a couple of times for a laugh! I’m really pleased with it; considering I didn’t have a true pattern; and it was a nice start on knitting something a little bit different!
