My niece Stephanie wanted a penguin hat after seeing the sock monkey hats I made for her cousins. This is what I came up with by using a couple different patterns. I'm pleased how it turned out and she loves it.
This is my nephew Noah with his new sock monkey hat. I had to have grandma hold his hands so he wouldn't take it off just so I could get a pic.
He's always on the move.....
I got the pattern here on the ville.
Sorry he took it home with him but I used Red Heart pattern LW2674 which says the medium hat measures 20" x 8" long.
I made the hat 35 rows long instead of 27 like the pattern calls for. I thought it came out a little short. Hope this helps.
