Minion Crochet Hat for Halloween

Minion HatWith Halloween coming up, I got a request to make a hat for young baby J.  We agreed on a Minion Hat, so J’s Mum will buy him a bright yellow top and overalls.  I can’t wait to see the outfit all together!

Below is the pattern that I came up with.  You could make two eyes if you wanted, and do more of the ‘hair’.
