I started making this but it seems so small. What hook did you guys use? Just one strand of worsted yarn? Any help would be great, thanks!

I LOVE this!!! I was going to buy my son's costume for Halloween this year, he is going to be Yoda, but when I looked at the store bought costume, it's nothing like what it's supposed to be! I decided to scour the internet to find a pattern for the ears on a hat, not expecting to find anything spectacular but at least where people can tell what he is. I was very happy to find your tutorial! I do have one question though, on your initial rounds, how are you doing your increases and in what pattern? Also, what size hook did you use? This is a great pattern that I will post pictures of as soon as I get it finished! Thanks for sharing!!

I used a 5mm hook i think ..... don't remember now!  To do the increase of the rounds, i did i think i did it like you'd normaly increase in the round.  start off with 7 sci n the loop, then do 2 sc in each st from previous rnd in next rnd 1 sc in first st and 2 sc in next st all the way around until you reach the end of this rnd.  then the next rnd you'd do 1 sc in the next 2 st, then 2 sc in the next st for the rnd.  and so on and so forth.  you can always adjust the size of the hat by doing more rnds of increases if it seems a bit small.  it's supposed to be a bit big on top, so you can gather it to form the forehead wrinkles!  good luck, can't wait to see your finished projects!!

I finished this on Halloween. Lol. I left the eyes off though and mine was a bit rushed but still looks adorable! I can't post picture from my phone but I'll get them on here ASAP!

Thanks soo much for the great pattern!
I added your tutorial to Ravelry.
 So hopefully other fellow starwars fans can benefit from your awesomness.

I love this hat!! But, I am currently making this hat and am finding it off or too small! So, in response to "jexxican" the abbreviations are not typical. I figured out from the picture and from making the hat that:
 "sc" is not a single crochet. it is a typical "hdc" half double crochet.
"hdc" is not a half double crochet, but a typical "dc" double crochet.
Hope that helps! Since I have tried it with those abbreviations, it worked out!!

sc is single crochet for the pattern that i wrote an hdc is half double crochet for this pattern as well.  It was made for my two year old son, though I tend to crochet quite loosely. hope that helps!  i used a 5mm hook.
