Funky Sock Monkey


Designed by Debbi Stone, aka Cockeyed the sockateer

Sock monkeys land on Blue Moon! The air is a little thinner here and the traditional sock monkey has mutated into this ever so wild and funky monkey. Knit in true sock form, with afterthought mouth and bottom and with your choice of double-points, two circs, or Magic Loop. Never before has a sock become so multidimensionally charming.

You will not be able to knit just one!
