Polka Dot Cottage: Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees

Hey, hey, we’re the Monkees

Hey, hey, we're the Monkees

I was commissioned to make a pair of Mike Nesmith-inspired wool hats recently, after somebody saw the one I made for Aidan last year.  So here they are.  I like these a lot better than Aidan’s, actually, which was done on a loom, and totally improvised.

I improvised these, too, but I’ve got more experience under my belt and had better ideas for how to achieve the look I wanted.  So here are the details, in case you have a Monkees lover in your midst:

Yarn: Berroco Vintage Chunky in Douglas Fir, exactly 1 skein

Needle: 16-inch #9 circular

Pattern: co 80 st in the round, k1 p1 until you have knit for 11 inches, gather bo, make & attach 2-inch pom-pom

P.S. you should still be able to do this with a loom, if you want to.  I’d use the yellow one, and do the k1 p1 rib for 11 inches.  You might need to double the yarn, given the larger gauge of the loom, though.  (The original one I made for Aidan used the knit stitch throughout, worsted weight yarn (doubled), and the green loom, but it really was on the small side, and I think it would have looked better in a rib.)
