|My Pinterest inspiration|
The basic hat form was quick and simple. The ears were another story. How was I going to get these trademark ears to stick out so that people could tell that it's Yoda?
Pinterest saved the day again! I remembered recently posting a picture on my "yarn yarn yarn" board that I thought was really clever. Someone shared a photo showing how they got crocheted bunny ears to stand up: pipe cleaners!

Then I crocheted the edge of the ears, making sure to cover the pipe cleaner completely.
Next, I wound the ends of the pipe cleaners together to create a strong base. This is the side I would attach to the hat.
