"Despicable Me" Evil Minion Hat - Knitting Pattern

After creating the One Eyed Minion Hat and the One Eyed Minion Toy, and both being quite popular, I turned my head to the 2 Eyed Minions, in both toy and hat forms. Check out both patterns. I've made the different so that you can chop and chose various elements for your own unique hat.

This one is for a 2 eyed Evil Purple Minion!
