Apparently I missed the whole Despicable Me craze (maybe its because my kids are all grown) because when I was asked would I crochet a minion hat I was like who?what? haha
A little bit of googling and I was well informed with who minion was and agreed to give it a go, it looked simple enough.
I have crocheted lots of beanies before but never a character one, this was also my first earflap beanie. For the beanie itself I just went with my own pattern I always use, I searched how to make the ear flaps and the eye was pretty simple.
I thought it looked OK, the young girl who it was for loved it!
Maybe I might try some more character crochet.....
