Sock Monkey Hat :: Free Crochet Pattern

Jul 20, 2015

I have friends and family members having new babies and it’s making me itch to get back into crocheting again.  And I might as well share my love of crocheted cute hats with you too, right?

***As always, you’re more than welcome to sell finished products from this pattern.  I only ask that you give me credit and link back to this pattern.  Please play nice and don’t claim the pattern or photos as your own.  If you do end up making a hat from my pattern, I’d love to see the results!  Link me to your blog, email me a photo (katy@handmadeescapade) or post it to my Facebook page.  I want to see what you can do!!

e stitch.  2 DC in each around. Ch 1, turn.

Fasten off, weave in ends.


Earflap Braids (for all sizes):

— For each braid, I cut 9 pieces of yarn at around 30″ each. I say “around” because I just eyeball how long I’d want them to be.  You can make them longer/shorter to your liking.

— Fold that group of yarn in half and at the top (the loop end), pull the loop through one of the ear flaps of the hat in the middle, just enough to string the cut ends of that group through. Now your strings should be secured on your ear flap.

— Divide the hanging strings into three sections of 6 strings and braid away. Knot near the bottom and clean up your ends with scissors.

–Repeat on the other ear flap.

Good luck!  I hope you love your new hat and please let me know if you have any questions!  Happy crocheting!
