Dear FaveCrafts, I wanted to make this hat for our grandchildren (twins) 4 years old. Would you please enlarge this pattern for me for a toddler. I have made a few hats but don't trust myself to make this with out a pattern for toddlers. Would you please help me. They love monkies and would love this hat. Thank you for all your help, Sharon

Not only do I love it, but I made it for a friend's grandson who is in the Marvelous Monkeys class this year. Had to make it a little larger for a toddler. Can't wait to see a photo of him wearing it. Completed it in about 3 hours.

Very cute pattern and I have an 11 yr old AND a 21 yr old that would wear it "just because" :)

There are a lot of kids' crochet hats (and patterns) floating around out there - especially on Etsy! The Craftytortoise is one of the sellers...the hats go for $30 - $35!!!! There's also a lady down south somewhere that sells her patterns on Etsy, as well, and they all look very similar. Some are cuter than others - I'm not a huge fan of this Anne Geddes style of people dressing their babies as animals, personally, but there's a sock monkey pattern that grew on me!

This is an adorable pattern. My granddaughter is expecting a baby next Spring and loves monkies. I will definitely be making this for her and the new baby. Thank you so much for the pattern. I was hoping to be able to find just such a pattern!! I love your website.
