Well, I finally finished! And boy what a fiasco! After finishing the first hat, I went on to Luigi. It ended up too shallow to slouch over TWICE but I finally got it. Then the Mario hat looked more shallow so I decided to re-try it. BIG MISTAKE! I ripped it out to the decreases and then couldn't find my leftover yarn to add the depth I wanted and couldn't find a store that sold it anywhere. So...the day before Halloween I had to go buy a completely different yarn and start ALL OVER. Literally almost knitted for 24 hours straight to get it done in time for trick-or-treating. OUCH! I had to cut a few rows off the bill just so I could finish in time. I also was able to block the bill on the green one but not the red one. Oh, well...at least I know I can do it. LOL, probably without the pattern now I've done it so many times
