R2D2 Beanie Pattern!

I've been working hard on making a pdf of my R2D2 beanie that I posted earlier since some people on craftster requested it. It gets a bit complicated to try and explain in words at points, but I have a lot of pictures and notes to hopefully clear it up. It hasn't been worked through yet, so hopefully there aren't any mistakes. Anyways, here's the link to the pdf (I would just post it here, but with all the pictures added it would be a pain):

I may write my pattern a bit strange to some some possibly important points to note about the pattern are:

1. asterisks (*) surround parts of the pattern that are to be repeated the number of times indicated immediately afterwards by x__ with the number of times in the blank
2. For the purposes of this pattern, I chunked the portions that are to be made in the same color together using brackets
3. 2sc in st = 2 sc in the same stitch (probably more known as a sc increase, again I write up patterns a bit weirdly)
4. If you don't know how to do a magic circle, just youtube or google it. There are plenty of videos/directions out there on how to do it.

If anything doesn't make sense for anybody, let me know and I'll fix it!



  1. Erin--
    OMG... this is a fabulous pattern!! I downloaded it a few days ago and I'm working on it right now. Once I get it done, I'll take photos and let you know when they are up.

    Seriously, this is the best hat pattern I've ever seen!!! :)

  2. Just got my R2-D2 hat finished tonight and a picture of it is on my blog:

    I'm so glad you posted it! Thank you! :)

  3. Thanks! I'm glad it worked out so well (except for the size)! The size thing I think is due in part that 1. I have a very large head and 2. carrying over all the threads made it a bit tighter for the one I made
