A lot of people have asked me to post the pattern for the Sock Monkey Hat and Stuffed Animal I made a while back. I WISH I could claim credit for this cute project, but I found it on the Red Heart Yarn website.
The hat is a simple project that is worked in the round. The monkey is a bit more intricate, but most people should be able to figure it out as it is worked in a spiral. Use your stitch markers to keep track of your rows!!
Here’s the original post for the pattern.
I used Red Heart Saver Yarn for the brown. For the white and maroon I used Hobby Lobby’s I Love This Yarn to provide a softer yarn on the baby’s face.
Also, my gauge tends to be a bit looser so the hat turned out to be a bit too big for a newborn’s head. Check your gauge prior to starting the hat if you tend to have a looser or tighter stitch. Thankfully, the hat will be able to be grown into so I wasn’t too worried about it 🙂
I hope you enjoy the pattern! Feel free to comment if you have any questions!!
