I love sock monkeys. And sock monkey hats.
I do intend to get a photo of me wearing this hat in the daylight, but for now this is the best I can offer.
I love how quickly these hats work up – started last night, finished tonight. The yarn is Kertzer Northern Chunky, 100% acrylic, sold at my LYS. The hook size was 6.5mm (haven’t a clue what the US size is, I know knitting needle size equivalents, but have never learned the letters for US crochet hook sizing).
The yarn doesn’t come in red, so rather than mix brands or yarn weights I used pink. Makes for a girly look which is fine considering this one is for me. Did I happen to mention that this one is for me?!
I don’t have a pattern link, I’m afraid, this is one my inventive friend made up and told me how to do it. And next, a Hello Kitty-type hat, if all goes to plan. 🙂
