Description: Around here, we just LUV us some Sock Monkeys, and we believe that all beverages should be decorated. So bringing the two together was a no brainer! Worked in the eponymous color scheme, these koozies are easy to make, and loads of fun to use or give as gifts. The quick-knits are worked in the round, and feature attached ears, a mouth appliqué, and button eyes. With four pattern sizes available, we’ve got most of your beverages covered - literally!

Sock-aholic® Brewski is dyed by hand at our brewery using a wonderfully soft 4-ply Luxury Worsted Yarn made from 100% Fine Merino Superwash. Each skein contains 190 yards, and knits at a gauge of 5-6 stitches per inch using size 5-7 needles. This yarn is soft as a cloud, yet durable enough to make fabulous garments that you’ll want to wear right next to your skin.

This yarn may be machine washed in cool water using a gentle cycle and mild detergent. Roll in a towel to remove excess water (do not twist or wring), and lay flat to dry away from direct sunlight.
