I created this hat for my daughter who has recently falling in love with Shrek. This modeled version was knit for her 3rd birthday and had become a daily staple. I added a short row in the ear to create more of a Shrek ear shape so be careful when you add the ear to make sure they both face front.
This hat doesn’t need to be blocked but can be for more defined shape. I combined wool with cotton to reduce wool itch.
