You will need:
Brown Worsted Weight yarn (I used Red Heart with Love and I Love this Yarn)
5.0 or a 5.5 hook (depending on what size of hat!)
Small amount of black yarn.
Check out my Favorite Tools and Resources for what I recommend!
Use a 4.5 or 5.0 hook. If you crochet very loose, I recommend using the smaller hook.
Row 1: Chain 24
Row 2: In the second chain from the hook, HDC. HDC in each stitch across. Chain 1 and turn. (23 HDC)
Row 3: HDC in each stitch across. Chain 1 and turn. (23 HDC)
Row 4: HDC in each stitch across. Chain 1 and turn. (23 HDC)
Row 5: HDC, DC in the next 3, TRC, 3 TRC in same stitch,
TRC, DC in the next 3, HDC, SC, HDC, DC in the next three, TRC, 3 TRC in
the same stitch, TRC, DC in the next 3, HDC. Chain 1 and turn. (27)
Row 6: DEC HDC, DC in the next 4, 3 DC in the same stitch, DC in the next
3, HDC, SC in the next 5, HDC, DC in the next 3, 3 DC in the same
stitch, DC in the next 4, DEC HDC. Chain 1 and turn. (29)
Row 7: DEC HDC. HDC in the next 11 SC, SLST, SC. HDC in the next 11. DEC HDC. (27)
Now single crochet around the piece for the toddler size. HDC for the
child and adult size. Remember to crochet two stitches as you turn corners.
(I didn't go around the top, just the sides and bottom to clean up the edges.)
Leave an extra long tail to sew on to the hat.
10 HDC in a magic circle, slip stitch to the
first stitch. Fasten off and leave a long tail to sew on. With scrap
yarn sew on a little reflection spot.
For Eye Lashes Only
black, chain the length you desire (I usually go about 10 chains).
Position on the hat and sew on. Every other stitch make a small lash by
coming up in the desired spot and then sewing down on to the chains.
12 DC in a magic circle. I stretched the nose horizontally and sewed it on.
Add the tassels and you have yourself a cute monkey hat!
