Description: Whimsical sock monkeys naturally bring out the entertainer in anyone! Around here, they are particularly fond of lip syncing to disco music. These quick knits start with a long ribbed section that is accented with sporty stripes. The pattern then uses the shadow-wrapped short row technique to form the two-color mouth and subsequent head shaping. Ears, a pom pom, a pair of buttons, and some brain stuffing add the finishing touches to your new friend.
