Crocheted Sock Monkey Hat
This is the latest crochet hat I have made and I'm so proud of it! I wanted to make a gift for a friend that was having her first baby. I thought I would make a little something but not sure what to make. Well one day I stumbled upon this idea. Cute hua! This was really a lot of fun to make. It worked up quite fast. It is made very similar to my other hats. I only changed up the color and added ear flaps. My friend who is having the baby is having a girl. Ha ha! I guess you could tell that by the color. I hope it fits but we won't know for another week or so. :) But if it is to small I can make her another one. I added a little crochet flower but didn't get a snap of it before I wrapped it up.
My daughter really likes it and wants one. Sorry Carmen, too small. Ha ha! Well if you can believe it, a couple of my friends want me to make some for their kids. I don't feel that experienced! Plus they offered to pay. Now I'm in a dilemma because I don't like to charge my friends. I have looked on several Etsy spots and they charge anywhere from $18 to $25. Why didn't I know how to do this when my own children were little? I remember...I had kids. ( no time!) Ha ha!
Have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!

Its adorable! Nice color choices. Did you follow a pattern or did you make it up yourself? I say sell them/give them a "discount". I'm kind of in the same spot with my beaded jewelry. I also do research on how much might charge. I plan to give things away as Christmas gifts too.

This hat is too stinkin' cute! I love most things "sock monkey" anyway, but this is just adorable. Makes me wish I could crochet/knit.

Newly following from the Wild Weekend Blog Hop. Love to have you stop on by and say hello!
