My son has a friend that wanted an evil minion hat to give as a Christmas present. Being new to crochet I had not yet tried making one of the evil minion hats like I did with my knitting looms, but I was willing to try. So over Thanksgiving break while I was on vacation I gave it a go.
In a nutshell I just crocheted a basic beanie (using Redheart yarn), changing the colors for the band. To create the 'hair' I used Lion Brand Hometown USA in two different shades of purple. Cut the strands and tie them to the top portion of the hat all way around. I then separated the strands and fluffed it up.
And that's my take on the evil minion.
