I found this adorable Sock Monkey Hat by Nicole Montgomery on Ravelry and just had to make it. You can find her pattern for sale at her etsy shop. I'm working on another one right now to send to my nephew. It's a great pattern! It also makes a great hat without adding on the sock monkey face. When I started knitting the child size hat I didn't check my gauge and it ended up being too big, so I passed it along to my sister. I definitely would have worn it, but you know we don't typically see cold weather down here in Houston.
