Wooo hooo!!!! They're at it again! The Monkees are going to tour again this summer in the U.S. and possibly move on to Europe in the fall! http://www.monkees.net/monkees-announce-2013-full-tour-dates/ If their last tour was any indication, better be quick to order your hat and rock out Monkee style!
Inspired by the hat worn by Mike Nesmith of the Monkees! Thanks so much to Peter Tork for sitting with an adorable young lady modeling the hat I made for her!
Looking for the pattern for this awesome retro hat? Just head on over here! https://www.etsy.com/listing/125238950/knitting-pattern-mike-nesmith-inspired
9-1/2" (24.13cm) long from the top of the hat to the bottom edge
Stretches18" up to 23" (45.7cm -58.4cm) and will fit most head sizes
The hat will pull down over your ears without a brim folded up and sit slightly above your ears as pictured above with the brim folded up - JUST LIKE MIKE :-) Check out the picture for a picture of Mike wearing the "original."
PLEASE NOTE: This hat is designed to fit snugly ABOVE your ears as shown in the first photo when folded with a brim. My mannequin's head is a little on the smallish side and this hat is designed to fit like the one on my live model.
A special thanks to Rod of the band “Les P’tits Bonzhommes” for graciously participating as my live model (a bit different yarn but illustrates the fit). Be sure to catch a show if you're in or around Montreal, Canada.
Rather have the Royal Blue one Mike also wore? Want acrylic and not wool? Want a chunky yarn not worsted weight? Send me a message and that can happen as well. Just click on the "contact" button in the right column to send that message.
