Pattern Description:

This is a detailed written knitting pattern in pdf format for a Sock Monkey hat.
I decided to design a Sock Monkey hat at the request of one of my daughter's friends. It is worked flat on two needles. I have used seed stitch for the earflaps and brim, garter stitch for the intarsia mouth, ears and crown and stocking stitch for the main body. The hat is finished off with ties/tassles and a pompom using all three colours used in the hat. The instructions cover four sizes from baby to teen/woman.
The photograph shows the hat modelled by my 15 year old daughter.
Happy Knitting!
