Oddball Sock Monkey #T721
Oddball Sock Monkey
This little sock monkey can be knit from odd balls of leftover sock yarn. Change colors to create a beanie, mittens, pants, sweater, and socks. A garter stitch scarf and rolled-brim hat can be added to complete the wardrobe.
The 10" monkey is knit in the round from the feet to the head; and arms, ears, and tail are sewn on. Designed for fingering weight yarns, it can be knit in traditional colors or non-traditional for a real oddball.
Great for both the young and young-at-heart, this monkey is not suitable for infants since the small sewn parts could be choking hazards.
