These adorable socks are cast on at the cuff and include a ‘clean’ stripe plus a turning round in the ribbing. For the traditional sock monkey look, 3 colours of Briggs & Little ‘Tuffy“ are required, but there will be lots of red mix and ecru left over! (For the main colour, Granite, I used about 65% of the skein for my ladies’ small socks.)

Sizes are based on multiples of 4 sts. For sizes that are smaller than 36 sts, you may prefer a heel that uses 60-70% of the total sock sts.

Please note that this free pattern does not include complete heel instructions. You will need to purchase my Sock Science Too pattern for complete short row heel information (that includes suggestions for high insteps and a checklist for stitch and row counts …and a Summer Sockies pattern and Mock Cable sock pattern). Alternative garter stitch short row heel patterns can likely be substituted.
