Itty bitty banana na
I have another order for 3 "minion" beanies. I've called them banana nas because, well obviously I am not part of the brand" despicable me". Furthermore, I couldn't duplicate anything no matter how hard I tried. I've had people tell me that it's against copyright... I'm not sure those people know the difference between their head and a hole in the ground. All my work is done solely by myself, Andria Carlene. These two hands make everything. I buy the yarn, I buy the hooks or needles, I buy the scissors, I buy the buttons... It's all me. I'm in my own area all alone.... Only occasionally do I knit or crochet in public even. But you get the point. I do not want anyone confused.
Anyways, minion, banana nas, whatever.., it's jus yellow, black, blue, white,& grey yarn. That's it!
For baby 0-6 month... This fits my rainbow brite doll....
Size H hook
Red heart or same kind yarn, acrylic-
All single crochet(2x = 2 single crochet into same stitch)
Chain 4, slip into 2nd pull tight(3 stitches), 6 single into same.
2x into each stitch=12

It's up to you where you want the stripe, I usually just eyeball it. Or you can do 2 rows of 42 stitches, stripe 2 rows, then finish with yellow.
I've began to do my border in blue. Any color will work. 1 row round.
On both sides for ears, stitch 8 across, turn, do not go into first stitch
