Needing a Halloween costume for a party this year, I opted to be a Minion from the movie, “Despicable Me.” I found some overall shorts and a yellow shirt at a local thrift store, some yellow tights at Target, and borrowed the boots from my daughter.
But the crowning glory (pun intended) of the ensemble was the crochet Minion hat, thanks to a free Ravelry pattern by Jennifer Dougherty. It took me just two evenings to whip up – one evening for the yellow cap, and one evening for the goggled-eye.
While Halloween has passed, perhaps this project will still inspire you for holiday gift-giving. The pattern provides instructions for child-adult sizing, so you can create your own family of Minions in time for the holidays!
