Crocheted R2D2 Earflap Hat {Pattern}

Materials/Tools:
- 5.5mm crochet hook
- Worsted weight yarn in Blue, Grey, and small amounts of Black and Red. (I used
Red Heart SuperSaver in "light grey" and "blue", you will have enough yarn from a
364yard skein for at least 3 hats)
- Using standard North American terms, you need to know how to make a "magic
ring", a sc (single crochet), a hdc (half double crochet), increase, decrease, sl st
(slip stitch), how to change colours by pulling through your last stitch with the new
colour, and how to crochet over the string of the colour you're not using so you can
carry it with you until the next colour switch (this makes it look really clean and
seamless inside)
Fits 1 to 4 years (to my knowledge - I only tried it on Logan and Ella, but it does not
fit myself)

Add braided tie strings consisting of 3
grey and 3 blue strands of yarn 18" long,
to the tips of the earflaps. Cut the yarn to
length, fold in half, use a crochet hook
through a stitch in the point of the earflap
and pull the folded end though, then put
the cut ends through the loop of the fold,
then braid and knot.
