Sock Piggee 1.1 now available. We revamped the pattern to be simpler. It’s a good project for those who want to start making our sock animals but might be afraid of the involvement. Not to worry if you started with the old version. It can also be found at the link.

Inspired by traditional sock monkeys, this guy is designed to fit in the palm of your hand. Minimal seaming involves attaching the ears and legs only but does involve circular knitting. This is a weekend project but if your fast and with a little practice, one can easily be knitted in one evening.

Yardage and specific yarn requirements are available in the pattern.

Skill Level: Beginner/Intermediate.

Useful techniques
Circular knitting

For stripes, I recommend a self striping yarn. Color changes become tedious as this project progresses.
