A couple of months ago, a friend approached me with a picture of a crocheted Godzilla hat, that she found online. When I first laid eyes on it, my jaw dropped in disbelief that someone would put that much work into a hat. Of course I took up the challenge, eager to see how I could improve upon the design. Let me tell you guys, it WAS NOT easy. My version took about 1.5 months to complete, but mostly bc I had to plot and plan every detail and FROG a lot of it. Somethings were good in concept, but just didnt work, like a picot row accross the spikes, which didnt stand up. In the end, I was really happy with the results, and I've even resolved to write down the pattern. Thanks guys, C&C appreciated.

I think it was worth the frustration. It turned out amazing. The detail above the eyes is really awesome. Congratulations on making some fantastic improvements on the design, and pulling off a perfect Godzilla hat.

I was thinking about making a similar version based on a sewn hat my friend showed me, but now I'm totally intimidated!
If it's any consolation, I think you did a great job on this hat! I hope your friend really enjoys it. And hey, if you post the pattern it would really help me out too Wink lol. But seriously, I am in awe of your skills right now! Keep up the awesome work!!! Cheesy
