One of my friends posted a picture of her daughter wearing an adorable sock monkey hat. I said, "Please, please, please tell me someone made that for her! I want to make one!!!" It was a photo prop and she wasn't sure where the photographer got it, so I headed immediately to Google for some answers. I found a cute crochet pattern and attempted it (for about 5 minutes). Although I can crochet, it's not my favorite thing to do. Then I tried to design my own pattern but it came out looking more like a fez. I ended up going to my local knitting store and getting a pattern for a baby cap with ear flaps and then I designed my own ears and mouth. It will be perfect...as long as my friend's baby has a cantaloupe-sized head!
