Crochet Yoshi Hat


    Crochet Yoshi Hat
        & Costume

All of my children really like Yoshi, so when my youngest daughter came to me 2 days before Halloween, yes, 2 days before Halloween, and she asked me to make her a Yoshi costume, I thought, sure, why not.

There really was not much available for sale at the time and sewing did not sound like much fun. But, crocheting DID sound fun. So I set out to crochet a Yoshi costume.

While there were some really cute handmade costumes, nothing was striking a cord and I wasn't having luck finding anything with a pattern, so I improvised. 

For our Yoshi hat I used this hat pattern for the Simple Earflap Cap.  

Various Amagurumi ideas for constructing the eyes, nose, etc. Circles, Ovals, etc. all too fit and make shapes needed for the face.

The really cute turtle shell pattern can be found here Play Dress Up (Part Deux).  

A sewn and stuffed tail, which was trial and error until I finally managed to figure it out.  The costume works with or without the tail. The tail is basically 3 triangles sewn together, then a triangle joining all 3 of these at the end, stuffed very full. With a belt sewn on.


White felt on the belly, cut in an oval and slip stitched around the edge, onto a plain T shirt.  

The skirt is sewn with fabric leftovers.  A basic short circle skirt.
Luckily my daughter wanted to be Pink Yoshi, since we used what we had on hand, which turned out, was a lot of pink. 

 I worked through the next day and through the night.

The morning of my daughters school Halloween Parade, she got up and it was all ready for her. 😊  She was so happy to get to be Yoshi that Halloween. ♡  
This was a fun and awesome project.
We still pull it out and wear it sometimes, even when it is not Halloween.

   My Yoshi & Mario team headed out trick or treating!

Mario's costume was made with bias tape as make shift suspenders. The 'buttons' are yellow cardboard cut in circles with 4 smaller holes and yarn laced through. Mustache, 'M' cap, jeans, and boots.

    Happy Halloween!!!

Thank you for stopping by!

Pink Yoshi, thanks you.
