This is a simple sweater I designed for my son’s sock monkey, which was wearing out in the tummy. It provides a little extra protection for the bits that have been loved off. You may need to adjust the pattern to your own sock monkey’s measurements.

The pattern has a funky collar (sock monkeys’ shoulders are slightly above their mouths), long sleeves, and an opening for the tail, of course.

This is my first attempt at posting a design on Ravelry. I’ve designed patterns in the past but never shared one, so I thought a sock monkey sweater would be a nice, non-threatening way to start! If all goes well, I’ll post other stuff.
