I really love StumbleUpon.com. I’ve enjoyed a lot of the creativity I see from folks out there. Recently, I stumbled upon a Sock Monkey HAT!! Well, I had to try it. I found a pattern off of Etsy.com from Shelley Tudor. (http://www.etsy.com/shop/sockmonkeykook?ref=pr_shop)She does a great job explaining, and quite frankly, she is about as friendly as could be, so it was even better to buy the pattern from her!
Addendum to my blog post: I figured out how to make an adult sock monkey hat! I used Catie’s pattern as a model for my adult hat (http://doahdiddy.blogspot.com/

There are some things that I will need to change, though…like the way I place the ear flaps…I made it weird so he is actually wearing his hat backwards. He doesn’t know, but I would feel better if the next wearers of my hats were able to wear them normally.
