Domo/monster innocent hats

Hi,
 
As many of you will know I have begun making hats for the innocent smoothies for this years big knit :)
 
Domo is a big part of my life and his latest bit of inspiration rubbed off on some of my hats :P
 
Here they are:
 
 
I made a brown one and a pink one- the traditional colours, but I may start making some random coloured little monsters too!
 
To make a monster/Domo hat it is pretty similar to the basic pattern but you just have to include a red intarsia square and some little teeth and eyes;
 
Pattern-
 
Using 4mm needles and the main colour DK you have chosen for your Domo/monster hat cast on 28sts
 
Knit two rows of k1, p1 ribbing
 
row 3- k 11 sts in brown, swap to red and k 5 sts, then swap back to brown and k the last 12 sts (using intarsia method of bringing different coloured yarns across back of work)
 
row 4- p 11 in brown,  p 5 in red, p12 in brown
 
Repeat rows 3 and 4 two more times :)
 
row 9- k across whole of row in brown
 
row 10- P across whole of row in brown
 
Repeat rows 9 and 10 2 more times
 
row 14- K2tog across (14sts)
 
row 15- P2tog across (7sts)
 
To finish thread yarn end through remaining stitches on needle, draw up and sew down back of hat- darn in and cut all loose ends also. Then using black yarn give your little monster two eyes and stitch/stick on some small strips of white felt which have been cut with pinking shears along one edge.
 
All done
 
Hahaha, I hope you like the hats-  I will have more to show you soon, I am sure of it :0)
 
See you soon,
 
Byeeee xXxXxX
