Pokemon Let’s Go – Diglett Hat

One of the most ridiculous items to buy for your partner pokemon in Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee and Pikachu is the much maligned Diglett Hat. It is an insane piece of clothing that looks like a tiny diglett perched on the head of your pokemon.

The hat in the game….

I haven’t made an insane hat for a long, long time… and totally needed something to rival the Palm Tree Hat….

Diglett Hat

You will need:

  • DK yarn – grey, brown, pink or beige, black

Using black, do the same for the eyes.

Wear your hat to support your partner pokemon.
