When you watch and read about Star Wars, there are certain iconic characters (e.g. Vader, Yoda, R2D2, Storm Tropper, BB8 etc.) that convince of importance and stay in your mind.
In Return of the Jedi, Leia’s feminism has been showcased more often. When she was captured by Jabba, the Hut tribe, she was forced to wear a metallic gold bikini. She became a fantasy of every male who loves star wars. They wanted to their a girlfriends or wives to wear that outfit.
After the movie release, Leia becomes the fantasy of every male who loves star wars. They wanted their girlfriends or wives to wear that outfit.
She was my first choice, not as a fantasy, but as an inspiration when I thought of making Star Wars themed Halloween costumes.
The Leia Hat is divided into two parts like body and buns.
R1: Starting with a magic circle, make 12 DC.
R2- R4: increase evenly by 12 in every row till the last round is 48 DC or 7″ diameter.
R5-R9: continue DC at every DC for 5 rows managing 48 DC. The hat should not cross the ear as it is forming the hair shape.
1: Join 2 strands, chain 60. You can continue one row of SC depending on the thickness of the strands.
2: Use Mod-Podge, or glue to while forming a bun. You can sew them from one end to other with brown color thread to avoid any falling apart.
3: Make 2 of these.
- Height: 6″
- Circumference: 16″-18″
The sizes can be altered based on the total count of the stitches for the rows.
- You can add pom-pom matching the color with the edging or the base color. Link to make the pom-pom.
- You can attach flowers, beads or a bow made of crochet, plastic, suede leather etc to give a more feminine touch.
But I do not think we need to go for any other additionals anymore. The Leia Hat style is an accessory in itself.
Remember: do not over accessorize it. This hides the beauty of the pattern itself. Believe in elegance simplicity!!
