It has been a while since I posted. My niece wanted to be Shrek for Halloween and so I helped my sister with her costume. I crocheted a hat for her. It is loosely based on the Brrr Baby Beanie found here http://craftyrahrah.wordpress.com/2008/08/11/brrr-baby-beanie-free-pattern/, which I had made before but I couldn't find my copy of the pattern when I made the Shrek hat, so I recreated it from memory. I was also largely inspired by this person: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=20209006. I am proud because I didn't know if I could do it, but I did. Thanks everyone for looking.
I hope I am okay posting it here, since I didn't create the rest of the costume, I thought this was the most appropriate place. Please let me know if it needs to be moved.
