Crocheting a yoda style hat while watch Star Trek is a bit mind bending! I made a basic beanie, then made ears starting at the tip and increasing every row. Next time I will go down a hook size to help the ears be more stiff so they stay up better, and if this was for a costume, would use wire in the ears.
The yarn is vintage wool that I thrifted, a basic worsted weight 100% wool. It is nice and warm for hats, but definetly not as soft as merino.
