“Do or do not. There is no try.” ~ Yoda
Yoda is a wise, thoughtful and a strong character; be him, wouldn’t you?
This Yoda hat is a quick knit but has a few techniques that make it advanced beginner. The hat is knit in the round mainly in reverse Stockinette stitch (aka Purl stitch for the newbie), with some cable & slipped stitch details. The ears are knit flat and come with detailed instructions for placing & shaping.
