Sock Monkey hat

I happened across a cute pattern the other day for a sock monkey hat and knew I had to make one.
Now I think I've been roped into making 7 more for a family photo. At least they work up quickly.

I used this tutorial and made it my own.  I used a larger hook (K) since I tend to have a pretty tight crochet stitch.   I wanted to get the mottled monkey look, so I used a strand of brown and a strand of white yarn together.  I also used double strands for the top portion by pulling from both ends of the skein on the red and off-white.  My next task is to try adding ear flaps.  I'll add a tutorial if I can figure that out.
