Pattern Round-up: Despicable Me

Last night I watched Despicable Me while casting on a new project and waiting for the sleeves of the cardigan to block.  It occurred to me that there is a lot of "knitwear" in this animated movie... plus the minions would make some supercute toys.  On to the round-up!

Edith's Stocking Cap
Edith isn't so very excited about dance class.  Edith thinks sleeping in an old bomb is cool.  Edith never takes her hat off.

This combination of slouchy stocking cap and earflap hat makes for a very distinctive fashion statement.

Gru's Evil Scarf
You can tell there's mischief afoot when the scarf appears.

Simply striped, this should be an easy knit for someone with patience.
