      Try clicking the print or pdf file located at the bottom of the post. You may have to click the left side of the button to avoid the pin it button. Working on getting that fixed. Let me know how that works. :)

    • CorinaCorina says

      Click the left side of the button. I will be fixing the issue with the pin it option popping up soon. Or you could hit CTRL P. Let me know if that doesnt work for you.

    I love this pattern! I have adapted it to fit my elementary age kids and I used thier school colors instead of making the monkey face. They love their hats! Thanks for the pattern!

    • CorinaCorina says

      You can wither hit CTRL P or you can select the print icon at the bottom of the post. You may have to select the left side of the print icon so that the “pin it” doesn’t get in the way.

    I made this for my 14 month old for Halloween because she LOVES sock monkeys and she won’t take the hat off. I got tons of compliments on it and am pretty sure it will be used at least through the rest of the winter. Thanks! And do you have any way I can upload a pic of mine?

    • CorinaCorina says

      I haven’t… yet ;) But really you could use any adult earflap hat and then use the face and ears from the child size version…. or use maybe a .5 hook size larger on the child size version :)
