Troll "Poppy" Hat

My husband's co-worker sent me a caricature of Poppy with a note wondering if I could make a hat for her.

Well, of course, as a crocheter, we never say no...lol.  I'm not sure what's up with that thought process that we (crocheters) automatically say yes to any challenge.

So, I spent the weekend making this hat. And, I will admit the hair was the longest process.
