Sock Monkey Hat
A childhood friend of mine sent me a message on facebook and asked me to crochet a sock monkey hat for her grandson who is expected to make his appearance in June. I found this pattern and went to work. The pattern was pretty easy to follow. It took me all day to crochet (in between taking care of my little ones). Not difficult but just time consuming to make all the different parts and sew them together. I don't think I'd made a pom pom since grade school but she had a link to a tutorial for that as well. It turned out so cute that it was hard for me to mail it away this morning. My little guy was quite enamored with it and was disappointed it didn't fit him so I might have to make one for him. The pattern has sizes from newborn - adult. I made the 6-12 month size so it will fit the new baby his first winter.
