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.
