DIY Monkey Hats, free crochet patterns

Crochet, Hat  |  September 26th 2011  |  0 Comment

I’m finished with half of the hats, and will create a special birthday girl monkey hat for Sunny to wear on her big day. The pattern was very simple to piece together, so for all you savvy crocheters out there, give it a try.

Materials:
Yarn in the colors and thickness of your choosing
A crochet hook appropriately sized for said yarn choice
Scissors
Tapestry needle

Directions:
1. Start by Googling “earflap crochet hat patterns”

2. Choose a hat pattern you like and get to crocheting! Once the hat is complete, you can trim the hat in another yarn color of your choosing.

3. For the ears, crochet in a round use a single crochet stitch, expanding out to 24 stitches. Do one round of 24 single crochet stitches after you’ve expanded the circle to 24. That will allow for the slight curl to the ears. I found that going any bigger than 24 stitches on a G-sized needle made the ears too floppy and they didn’t stick out appropriately.

4. Attach the two circle on either side of the hat, remembering that a monkey’s ears are low like human ears. Not at the top of the head like a bear or puppy dog.

5. Now go, monkey around! And wish me luck coercing the kids into all wearing their hats, AT THE SAME TIME!
