FREE Halloween Monster Hat Pattern for Toddlers

I have been a busy bee these last couple days!

For some reason, every part of me doesn't want to crochet when it's warm outside.  I almost get to the point where I swear that I will never be in the mood again... then the weather cools down, my yarn starts calling my name and my fingers start itching to hold the crochet hooks again!

I have had this overwhelming desire to give back to my fellow crochet community this fall with some free patterns.  Last night, I posted the free Newborn Pumpkin Hat.  Today, I whipped together a fun little monster hat for my toddler.  It turned out so dang cute, I thought I would post the pattern and share it as well.

Here is a basic, Monster Eye Ball skull cap.  But the options are unlimited to personalize!  Put some ears on, tufts on the top... I mean, come on, it's a monster... it can be ANYTHING!
