With the release of the family hit movie “Despicable Me 2” in July 2013, the minions have stolen our hearts once again. If your kids (or even you!) can’t get enough of the delightful little crazy-eyed critters, you can crochet your own with these free patterns. With patterns for minion hats, amigurumi stuffed minions - even a minion purse - there’s bound to be something for every minion-lover on your gift list.
If you live where it gets chilly, a crocheted minion hat could also be a great addition or alternative to a Halloween costume for your baby or toddler.
