I have two (actually, um... five) friends who are expecting, and one has a shower on Saturday, so I needed to get something made quickly! Thus these two hats... I'll be making another for a little girl soon. I made both of these yesterday.
This one was a compilation of three different patterns: one for the base of the hat, one for the brim, and one for the flower.
A newborn monkey hat... it turned out so cute! I used a soft brown cotton. I modified the ears a bit so they wouldn't be complete circles as the pattern suggested (yes, to me, patterns are suggestions!)
Enjoy! I've started looking for new patterns...
