Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Small Amount Fair Isle/2 color Stranding
  • (KFB) Knit Front & Back
  • I-cord

Pattern Description:

Monkey Business is required with this hat. A simple hat with plenty of personality. The i-cord tail winds around to follow behind. The eye lashes make it look like a girl, but try one without and see how much it changes the personality.

The point of the nose on the hat, has only 8 rows of 2 Color Stranding. This is good for a beginner looking for a little challenge to learn something new. Don't worry I have instructions and included links to videos to help with the tricky stuff.

The yarn is inexpensive, easy to substitute and available at most craft stores. So you can make plenty as gifts that everyone will ROFL for.
ROFL (Roll On the Floor Laughing) is my mission in knitting.

Knitting takes me away from the computer world but gives me a never ending media to learn and create. Each of my patterns have a little challenge to them. But don't worry, I have a list ...
