Do you know a Little Monster? Let him/her show their true colors in a Frankenstein Hat! The details are so fun:

  • high hairline with black stitched forehead for a surgically-replaced-brain look
  • Soft “bolts” on the earflaps
  • squared off stiff-brow Frankenstein hair
  • Optional daisies on the ends of the cords, for sweet little girls who want to give the monster a flower

Whether for Halloween or just for fun, the lucky child wearing this hat will be cute and funny, warm and snuggly.

Directions are easy to follow. A basic knowledge of intarsia and stranded knitting is necessary. The crochet add-ons are also very simple.

If you want to make the adult size, please let me know and I will get that revision done.

Special note: I designed this hat as a gift for a first-time mom who also happen to be a beautiful and gothic Horror Writer. Needless to say, she loved it.
