Love this


This is a detailed written knitting pattern in pdf format for a Sock Monkey hat.

I decided to design this Sock Monkey hat at the request of one of my daughter's friends. It is worked flat on two needles. I have used seed stitch for the earflaps and brim, garter stitch for the intarsia mouth, ears and crown and stocking stitch for the main body. The photograph shows the hat modelled by my 15 year old daughter.

Suggested yarns:
100% wool DK or a wool/acrylic mix DK. I used Stylecraft Life DK, however you could use any alternative yarn that knits to the same tension/gauge.

Yarn weight:
DK/8 ply (11 wpi)

22 stitches and 30 rows equals 10cm/4 inches using 4mm/US 6 needles over st st.

Needle size:
4mm/US 6
The garment is knitted using two needles.

Baby (Toddler:Child:Teen/Woman)
