Hello! I recently made myself an Android Hat. (I haven't created anything for a long time!)

And here's the very easy pattern!

What you need

4.5mm double pointed & cable knitting needles

Green yarn (TLC cotton plus solid in kiwi)

White yarn (TLC cotton plus solid in white)

stitch marker

some white felt

yarn needle

sewing needle with some white thread

Pattern

CO 108 stitches on the cable knitting needles, join the round.

Ribbed rows white yarn

knit 2, purl 2 around, repeat till the ribbed rows are about 1 inch

use a stitch marker to mark start of each row.

Stockinette rows green  yarn

switch to green yarn and work in stockinette stitch till the stockinette stitch rows are about 4 inches.

Reducing rows
switch to double pointed needles

After the 4 inches of stockinette rows, start reducing every 12 stitches around

ie. knit 10, knit 2 stitches together, knit the next row

reduce row knit 9, knit 2 together, repeat till end of row, knit the next row

keep reducing every alternate row, ie. reduce row, k8, k2tgo, repeat till end, k next row, k7, k2tgo, repeat till end, k next row, k6, k2tgo etc ..

reduce till you are left with 9 stitches, pull yarn through the remaining 9 stitches and sew ends in.

My gauge is 5 stitches per inch. I have a large head, so the above measurements matches my head! It may be too big for you! Alternatively, you can use any other basic beanie pattern you prefer, in your preferred type of yarn and needle size to fit your head!

Antennas

pick 3 stitches at 1 side of the yarn, icord for 10 rows, bind off on 11th row

repeat on other side of hat.

Eyes

cut 2 round circles of white felt and sew onto the hat slightly above the ribbed rows.

Sew in all yarn ends.
