This is a circularly-knit, stranded knitting design by Mary Ann Stephens. It is suitable for intermediate knitters familiar with stranded (Fair Isle / Norwegian style) knitting. The same pattern works for knitting hats in newborn, infant, youth and average adult sizes, provided the gauge and yarn are adjusted as indicated in the instructions. This hat coordinates with Mary Ann's "Sleepy Monkey Blanket"
design, which was published in the Spring 2009 edition of Twist Collective. Twenty new monkeys are included in this pattern; you can optionally use them to customize either design.
There are two different kits. They both come with the same printed pattern plus 5 different-colored 50-g / 1 3/4 oz balls of Dale of Norway yarn
. The kit for newborn and infant sizes comes with fingering weight Baby Ull
washable merino yarn and the kit for youth and teen/adult sizes comes with sport weight Falk
100% wool yarn. In addition to kits using the colors shown in the above photos, you can request color substitutions within the same yarn types.
