Minion Earflap Beanie

By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
Beanie being model off by my son. :)
He didn't want the Finn Beanie afterall cause he watch Despicable Me
and decide he wanted a Minion beanie. :)

Child (20" - 21.5" head circumference) nice fitted fit
This same pattern fits a teen and adult with a small head (it fit me, nice snug fit)

*Crochet hook size: 5.0mm
*Worsted weight yarn: Yellow, Light Blue, Brown, White, Gray, & Black
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Tapestry needle
*2 black buttons with a diameter of 10mm
*Matching thread

  At the end of round 9, laying flat = 6.75 inches in diameter. Don’t forget to check your gauge. :)

  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.
  Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds. :)
  There's no need to slip stitch and/or chain when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
  The ch 2 in the beginning of each round counts as 1 hdc.

Don't forget to like this blog facebook fan page. :)

Nanske Panske kindly translated the pattern in Dutch. If you would like the pattern in Dutch it can be found --> HERE.

Have a nice crochet time!
