What do you get when you mix a little bit of leftover sock yarn, size 1 dpn sock needles, a funky monkey pattern, and a few extra hours?
A little sock yarn monkey.
I’ve been wanting to make this pattern for a long time but just haven’t gotten around to it. Yesterday afternoon I was kinda “trapped” in my room, waiting for the freshly cleaned carpets in the house to dry, so it was just easier for me to stay in my room and knit. My current project was downstairs, so I decided to work on this monkey instead.
This was such a fun little clever knit that only required minimal seaming. The legs, tail and mouth were all worked on the body using waste yarn holders that you then unpick to work those sections after working the main body. You can get the pattern for the Funky Sock Monkey here.
