This took a while for me to finish. Prior to doing it, I only had practice working in spirals because that's what you did with amigurumi. This one required working in joined rounds. Since I haven't perfected that yet, you'll see the part at the back of the hat where I joined. Oh well. My monkey is clueless as to his hat's many imperfections.
I also had to unravel so many times before getting the size right. Here's my 2nd attempt. Too small. Sigh.
I didn't think counting my stitches was important. It's important! Here's a photo of my hat in progress (the one where I counted) -
A friend pointed out that Monkey Boy looks like Monchichi here -
I quickly Googled who this Monchichi is, and it turns out, he's right! Down to the part where my monkey sucks his thumb.
