Grey monkey hats for gorgeous little boys

Navy and Grey monkey hatLook at this pair of blue and grey monkey hats!  Cheeky or what? :)

I recently received an inquiry to ask if I would make a grey and blue sock monkey hat in the same style as the grey and red sock monkey hats - they wanted something just the same but with navy blue rather than red trim and detail for a little boy who was just 6 days old! The red and grey monkey hat is a Ruby and Custard design that I have been doing for a long while now and I loved the idea of trying the design out with blue rather than red!

So, off I went to buy more grey yarn and discovered that very sadly the yarn color has been discontinued! Normally I make all my hats in 100% cotton or cotton blend yarn but there was nothing in a nice grey. Cotton is lovely to work with and is available in beautiful colors which is why I tend to use it but there was just nothing available. So, I took a bit of a gamble and bought some merino wool mix from a brand that I’ve not used before and thought I would give it a go and see what happened. And I was really pleased!  The yarn was beautifully soft and cuddly, had plenty of stretch and looked great!
