Monkey wearing Monkeys

Monkey Partner Richard in Monkey Jungle Hat

Worked in Vellan's Yarn w/a big knotty stitch for texture and i-cord cast off edge

All the work was done by Vellan, not me, to make this hat look good. I'm using every last skerrick of yarn -- the last of the ball will go onto a pair of hand cosies

Don't tell fibs! You've really brought out the best in that yarn. Excellent work, petal.

Nahhh. It knitted itself, I swear. R looks so great in it, but he refuses to wear green. *Marge Simpson Grunt*

The photos doesn't show the blue/green blend at the crown very well.

Tech - used 5.5mm, 5.0mm, and 4.50mm needles as I worked my way down the hat. I forgot to weigh the wool before I knitted it.
