That is awesome, I've been wanting to make myself one of those and be the envy of all my geeky friends.  Grin

You did a great job, did you use the recommended yarn and needles? It looks like a different color.

I love it! I've seen the pattern and wanted to make it too! Yours looks great and I love that you made it Leia's hair color.
great job!

Thanks for all the support!  I didn't use the recommended yarn.  It was recommended to use Misti Alpaca Chunky, and it would require at least 2 skeins of it.  I have used that yarn before, and it is just so soft and wonderful, but I couldn't justify the investment for a costume item.  So, I got some craft store acrylic (worsted weight) and knitted with two strands as a sub.

Oh, and it's NOT too late if you're trying to make this for Halloween.  It seriously didn't take me long at all.

I've heard it both ways.

I'm looking to swap some knit &/or crocheted crafts for handmade CP/HP soap.

I saw that hat about a month ago online and hit my WIST button almost immediately! I think you picked a great color- the color she had chosen on her site I thought was a bit to dark for princess Leia but yours is right on. Great job!
