I've been into monkeys for a while and wanted to make a hat for my daughter so I made this.  It is a combo piece--the  mouth and ears are crochet and the hat is knit.  I also made one for my dollies.  Lana calls this her 'ugly monster hat'.  LOL.

At least Nara likes her hat.  Smiley

Thanks for looking.  Comments are always appreciated!!

Aww! My mother calls me monkey-face all the time. She's not being mean, it's meant as an endearment.

Yeah, this reminded me of that. It's so cute!

Aw, thanks guys!  It was great fun making the hat.  As for the yarn I was going crazy trying to find some sock monkey yarn--ragg I guess it's called.  Anyhow I couldn't locate some in brown/white, but I stumbled upon a place that had a two-toned yarn in wool.  I'll try to find the name of it.  They charged about $12/skein if I remember correctly. 

I would love to get a pic of Lana and Nara together, but Nara wouldn't cooperate!   Wink

Have a great day!!
