Sock Monkey Sock Hats

This pattern is available for free.

I had made sock monkey dolls for my great niece and the 8 month old across the street. I wanted something else for them for Christmas. That’s when I came up with this pattern. I wanted something to go with the sock monkey dolls but not look like the sock monkey hats I had seen.

I made the baby (boy) hat 1st. Somehow, I made a MAJOR counting error and it ended up adult size. Don’t ask me how, I have no idea why I didn’t catch what I was doing …. but I liked the outcome. (Shown in the middle of the top photo and by itself in the bottom photo.)

When I made the one for Aiden, I didn’t want a pom-pom since his sock monkey doll didn’t have one on his hat . . so I went with a simple fringe at the top. (Shown on the right in the top photo.)

I wanted Mady’s to be a little “girlie” so I added ringlets to the top instead of a pom-pom. Instead of a turn up brim, I made one that extends over the forehead. (Shown on the left in the top photo.)

Pattern is being written up. When finished, I will post the link on this page.
