Sock monkey hats are THE best prop for a sock monkey birthday invitation photo, so I can’t resist sharing this pattern – even if it is definitely what I consider to be advanced DIY. (I mean, to me, “Ch 1, turn. Dec, hdc in next 7, dec.” sounds like the most confusing thing ever.) But for those of you who do know how to crochet, you’re in luck!
You can make your own sock monkey hat using a free pattern thanks to Jeannie from Neanner’s Shop. You can check out the pattern here.
Updated 7.23.12: Unfortunately, Jeannie from Neanner’s Shop no longer offers this pattern for free use. You can read her statement about why she has removed the pattern from her website here.
