Monkey Hat Crochet Pattern

One of my customers asked if I could make up a monkey hat pattern.  It took me a while, but I have finished it and it is available for sale on etsy here.  It is a great beginner pattern, and includes step by step pictures to make the hat, ears, and the flower! Enjoy!

TUTORIAL: Apple Cozy

Materials Needed:
-Size H Crochet Hook
-Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Peaches & Creme 4 Ply 100% Cotton Yarn)
-Wooden Button
-Sharp Needle to sew the button on
Notes:
-Be sure to crochet over your loose ends as you go along so you won't have as many to weave in when you are finished.
-Gauge: 6 sts and 5 rows = 2" (5 cm) If your gauge is not right, go up or down a size crochet hook in order to get the right gauge.
-All apples are a different size, this pattern is written for an average size apple. If you have a very small, or very large apple, you can move up or down a crochet hook size so that your cozy will fit your apple.
