I’m checking out this awesome pattern, and I’m curious, is it done on double points?
It is knitted flat on straight needles, and sewn up with a seam down his back.
Wonderful! thank you! 😀
what size goggle eye does this need??
I used one about 40mm=50mm in diametre.
Thank you for making this pattern, I’m sure my nephews will love it.
I need help Pattern says cast on 4 stitches grey knit 23 rows How do I make this a circle for the eye?
If you knit the length of grey, then take both ends, and stitch them together, you will end up with a circle which can be stitched onto the hat.
My daughter sent me the pattern and it only took a sort time to make. The kids will love them.
I’ve knitted a few of your minions thanks for sharing

I made the grey around the eye ,but instead of buying an eye i knitted one in side the grey , with white wool , picking up stitches from bottom, then casted off , sewed to grey , then cast on a few stitches in black , done a few rows , then thread through stitches , pulled and made a round shape , sewed to one side of grey and white
That’s brilliant. I’d love to see it.
