Product Description

Description:  Whimsical sock monkeys naturally bring out the entertainer in anyone!  Around here, they are particularly fond of lip syncing to disco music.  These quick knits start with a long ribbed section that is accented with sporty stripes.  The pattern then uses the shadow-wrapped short row technique to form the two-color mouth and subsequent head shaping.  Ears, a pom pom, a pair of buttons, and some brain stuffing add the finishing touches to your new friend.

NOTE:  Sizes are achieved by varying yarn weight and needle size. 

  • The Small and Medium Child sizes are made from fingering weight yarn.  The Child Kit contains sufficient yarn to make two Small-sized Monkey puppets, or one Medium-sized monkey puppet.
  • The Adult size is made from worsted weight yarn.  The Adult Kit contains sufficient yarn to make one Adult-sized monkey puppet. 

Three Sizes:  Small Child (Medium Child, Adult)
