My 12 yr old daughter really wants me to knit her a sock monkey hat, the type with ear flaps. Does anyone have a pattern to share or know of a pattern to purchase?
I've been searching online but no luck so far
I posted a reply to this on the Hats Crazy site.
Happy knitting, Zoe
The MaryMaxim site did not have a sock monkey hat pattern, so I'm still looking for anyone out there who can help me!

Check out the other site that I posted a link for. There is the sock monkey hat there.
Here is the style I'd like to knit if anyone knows where to find a pattern?
The pattern at Knitty is not identical, but you might check out this web site and tweak the pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer06/PATTsockmonkey.html Hope this might help. Janet
Thanks for the website. I've seen this pattern and it isn't the style I'm after, so I sure would have to revise it and I'm not sure I'm that skilled of a knitter?
Here is a pic of the style I'm after just incase:
The difference is in the white of the mouth and red lips shape, plus the top is white with a red rim. I was thinking of finding a pattern to knit this style hat and then seeing if I can figure a way to create this pattern?
I wonder if you might be able to take another pattern with the shape you are looking for and put the two patterns together to create your own new pattern. I'm sure there are plenty of skilled knitsters here who can give you assistance.
I can't see the picture you posted anymore, but there is a nice sock monkey hat at Ravelry.com
There are others as well. That is just my favourite one.
2bChristine has bought a monkey sock hat that her daughter wanted. No pattern for this hat is out yet as it is still copyrighted. Check out the HATS CRAZY site and see what it is. Thanks for the tips for hunting for the pattern.
I desperately want this pattern as well. And today Whoopie was wearing this exact hat on The View !!!
Nope, this is not the same pattern as the one that Christine was looking for. She did end up buying it from her local store. Thanks, Zoe
