The tall roll brim hat patterns were created to decorate my sock monkey dolls in holiday attire. To keep it simple I just started off with the basic roll brim hat pattern and kept on knitting. Now you can make all sorts of crazy tall hats.
Roll brim hats are featured because the original sock monkeys that were made with the vintage sock monkey pattern, crafted a hat made from the toe of one of the Red Heel socks.
This was done by cutting off the toe of the sock, leaving ½ inch of brown to roll for a brim.
So I thought it was fitting to knit sock monkey hats with a roll brim.
