    Sock Monkey Pattern?

    So I have a five-year-old neice. She's been seeing Paul Frank merch. everywhere and has recently discovered the amazingly entertaining sock monkey. I wanted to make her one for her birthday this next month and I was wandering if anyone had a good pattern? I know it's a simple project but me without directions is a dangerous thing.Thanks guys!

    I made 11 of the little stinkers for my Christmas tree, in Dec. Would have been 12, but #12 was sacrificed to the Greater Good of his Bretheren. I screwed up and had to canibalize him. Mine were baby/toddler size socks from a kit, my mom found for me. Finished size was about 4". What's more fun than a tree full of Monkeys?

    I just saw at Walmart, they have the full size kits. If you em me,I can send you the directions....try on a non- Monkey pair first!

    Here are two online tutorials I found by googling "sock monkey pattern."

    Looks pretty fun... maybe I'll make a sock monkey myself!

    Yes, what craftytricks posted above is what I believe also comes with the Rockford red heeled socks too. My mom and dad own a 'vaca' home in Vermont and there is a store my mom picked the socks up in and in the package comes the directions.

    My husband thinks it's just an awful thing to do to such great work socks--lol.

    Hopefully, I'll get to making mine too!
