Minion Headband for Jethro

 When I gave all my granddaughters their knitted headbands, Jethro was disappointed he didn't get one. He wanted a yellow headband. So I had to come up with something a little more boyish just for him.
 Just like all the other kiddos, Jet loves Minions.
And Minions are yellow.

 yes, he is as sweet as he looks {heart}

My daughter brought home a bag of clothes from a friend and I pulled out this gray sweater. When I wore it to Jamie's, she said, "You look like Gru!"
"Who's Gru?" I asked.
haha... she was right!
Despicable Me by Illumination Mac Guff

Here's what I did to make a yellow headband/ear warmer for Jet in case you know a little person who might like one...

Knitted Minion Ear Warmer

Yarn: Yarn: Loops & Threads Impeccable Color: Butterscotch
Other color needed for headband: black
Needles: 8

In Yellow, Cast on 62  
ROW 1: K2 P2 
ROW 2: P2 K2
ROW 3-6 Repeats Row 1-2
Switch to Black Yarn
ROW 7-10: Continue repeating Row 1-2
Switch back to yellow yarn 
Row 11-16 Continue repeating Row 1-2
Bind off, leaving a length of yarn to sew short sides together.  Knot and weave in ends

There are lots of patterns available on the internet for crocheting Minions eyes. I used this one found here: KnottyKnotty.blogspot.com 

After making the eye, I used a length of yarn to attach it to the headband. With a length of black yarn, I stitched a small mouth. If you don't want the mouth, just don't add it.
