Sock Monkey Hat

I’ve been wanting to make up this pattern for a long time! And with the three-day weekend, what a better time to start than that? This sock monkey hat is too cute and super easy to make. I’ve included sizes infant thru adult, but the one pictured was made following the 6-12 month pattern below. Enjoy!

Pattern – Sock Monkey Pom-Pom:

In red yarn, make a medium-sized pom-pom and attach it to the top of the hat. If you don’t know how to make a pom-pom, pop on over to Handimania and check out their fantastic pom-pom tutorial!

For my pom-pom, I used a piece of cardboard roughly 6” long by 2” wide (I think this would be about the same size as using one empty toilet paper roll).
