Sock Monkey Sock KAL!

The Fun is On!

Join us for some fun summer knitting, and you might even win a prize!  grey-back.jpg

Description: Around here, we LUV all things Sock Monkey!  Any item with the eponymous color theme is an instant favorite for us.  This design is our take on the original sock style.  We start at the cuff with striped ribbing, and then work down the leg in a comfortably stylish, and crazy simple slipped-stitch rib pattern.  The heel features a fun, mini-gusset, shadow-wrapped short row combo that fits nicely and accommodates the contrasting color theme.  To finish the sock, the contrast colors make a final appearance on the toe.  You can even add some eyes if you like!

The pattern is written for four sizes:

  • Women's Narrow Width:  6.5 - 7.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Women's Medium Width:  7.5 - 9.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Women's Wide Width:  8.5 - 10.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Men's Width:  9.5 - 11.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • And the foot length is determined by the knitter.
