Following extensive preparation during Clone Wars, and various viewings of the Star Wars DVDs, I have finished the Yoda hat. Here is Finlay being like Yoda...
I made up the pattern, and it took me one afternoon and evening to knit it - which is good as I have at least one more in my future!
Its knitted in 4.5mm needles in Rowan Pure Wool DK in shade 20. The hat took 1 ball with a few yards remaining.
So, now to cast on number 2!
