      I made my son’s costume this year. He waddles around when he walks and I thought he’d be adorable as Yoda!
      I bought the robe material (57″ x 3/8 yds) at a second hand store for 50 cents and the yarn (red heart: frosty green) at walmart. Supplemented with brown clothing already in wardrobe. Painted his face with green and white face paint mixed together.


      Robe:
      No previous sewing experience, so wasn’t sure how to follow a pattern. Made it up as I went along. Just made sure it was long enough to reach the back of his knees.
      Beanie:
      This isn’t the exact same pattern that I used, but it is extremely close
      Gauge:
      17 sc = 3’’
      8 rows = 2’’
      Gauge Swatch: 3’’w x 2’’h (7.5cm x 5cm) ch 18.
      Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across
      Row 2 – 8: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across
      Finish off.
      Crochet Pattern: Beanie
      Round 1: ch 2, sc 10 in second ch from hook, place marker
      Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around
      Round 3: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc) around
      Round 4: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 2 sc) around
      Round 5: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc) around
      Round 6: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 4 sc) around
      Round 7: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 5 sc) around
      Round 8 – 9: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 10 sc) around
      Round 10 – 11: sc in each sc around
      Round 12: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 10 sc) around
      Round 13 – 17: sc in each sc around
      Round 18 – 19: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 15 sc) around
      Round 20 – 31: sc in each sc around
      Finish off

      Ears:
      basic triangle:
      Chain 15, then decrease at the beginning and end of each row until there are two loops on the hook.
      Fasten off.
      To elongate them, add an extra stitch to every 2nd or 3rd row.
      Sew to beanie. (or crochet to it)
