“Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you’re my only hope.” ~ Princess Leia

This is a fun pattern that is fairly simple to knit. It is knit is 3 pieces (1 hat portion and 2 side coils). The hat portion is knit single stranded in the round with effortless shaping. The coils are knit double stranded in i-cord.

This pattern comes in 3 sizes: small, perfect for a new baby or great as a baby shower gift for Star Wars fans; medium, an ideal kid’s size; and large which will fit an adult!
