I have been wanting to make this minion hat for a while now, but it took some time before I found the right colors of yarn. Especially the yellow color was hard to find. This yellow yarn is Drops Eskimo for 8 mm needles.
Minion hat pattern for a knitting loom
I made this minion hat for an adult and used the largest standard knitting loom with 41 pegs. The video below is from Tuteate and explains how to make this hat.
The collar of the hat is made with the rib stitch. In the video from Tuteate the purl stitch is combined with the e-wrap knit stitch, but I used the true knit stitch. There is only one way to do the purl stitch on a knitting loom. However there are three ways to do the knit stitch on a knitting loom:
- The e- wrap stitch
- The u-stitch, which is also called the flat stitch
- The true knit stitch

The yellow part of the minion hat is made with the e-wrap stitch. The hat is very easy en very fast to make. I’ve also made this other version. For this hat I only used the e-wrap stitch. Once you know how to make the eye of the minion, you can use it in any hat pattern.
