Modification Monday: Monkey Hat
Original Pattern: Monkey
Knitter Extraordinaire: Alexandra (ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Cleverly turned this popular sock pattern into a hat! Also increased gauge from fingering to aran. Project pages with full details on how to do the same can be found here and here.
What Makes This Awesome: Socks into a hat- I'm definitely impressed! I love the texture this takes on when blown up in the larger gauge, and it looks great as a winter hat. I've never even considered turning a sock pattern into a hat, but now I'll be looking at socks in a whole new light. Amazing!
