Monkey Ear Flap Hat


I finished this monkey hat pattern a while ago, but with the crazy blog giveaway going on I really couldn''t post it until now. This pattern was featured on favecrafts.com as well as a blog post I did for them HERE.
If you can''t crochet don''t worry. I also have this exact hat up in my etsy shop ready to be purchased and I take custom sizes as well.

It measures 16 inches around when measured, and does not stretch much. It is right on the edge of my chart between 3-6 months and 6-12 months. So it would be a great hat for a baby right in between. Always measure your baby''s head to make sure the hat will fit!

Personal and Charity use only please.

I was wondering how you make this in a smaller size? My nephew is just now 3 months.

This pattern is adorable and I am going to try to make it for my baby. How do you attach the ears?

You sew them on with yarn. Use a large yarn/tapestry needle to attach them. Let me know if you still have problems.
