Got a commision from a co-worker to make her a sock monkey hat, to complete her mother-son sock monkey Halloween ensemble.  She'd found the pattern on Knitty, so all I had to do was crank it out -- which took a fraction of a weekend!

Unfortunately, I hadn't paid attention to the yarn called for, and of course, didn't bother with a gauge swatch -- so I produced a lovely little hat that was just a little too big for her 5 month old son!

Tried it again with doubled yarn, and it turned out wonderfully!




(I also made her a knitted tube of a tail she can pin to her jeans or the rest of the costume if she gets it done.)

She had thought to hold onto the smaller version for the end of the winter, but it got scooped up when her mother did the babies wash -- and now might fit a large doll!


A co-worker agreed to make a pledge to the public radio station if I'd make him a sock monkey hat.  Then a college friend in town for a reunion saw it and *she* wants one.  And another one wants *two* -- one for her son and one for his best friend

Looks like I'm going to be the socke monkey hat queen this season!

(Can't seem to get the pictures to show up -- any suggestions?
Tried Flickr, then ravelry, now flickr again -- okay, finally uploaded to Crafsdter!)

Maybe it's a ravelry thing? The code looks right, but ravelry requires a login to view  anything specific on their website, so since you're not logged in while you're on here, the picture doesn't show up? Maybe?

It sounds cute! Too bad the big hat ended up in the wash.

So very cute. Those hats are so funny.
I have been looking for this in crochet, my coworker said if I found it she would make it for my son. I guess I will have to go downstairs and find the lady that does the knitting, haha.
