Micro Monkeys......................by special request!



My son put in a special request for these, well he fetched the KPPPM and demanded a pair of Monkey's after seeing the pair finished for my MSS3 pal. :) I did have to downsize the pattern to fit the smaller socks and it was more sucessful than I thought possible. :)

EDIT: 25th Sept
The pattern was rewritten as follows
I used 12 stitches instead of 16.
Row 1 knit all
row 2 purl3 knit6 purl3
row 3 purl2 k2tog knit2 YO/YO
knit 2 SSK purl 2
row 4 purl2 knit8 purl2
row 5 purl1 k2tog knit2 YO knit2
YO knit2 SSK purl1
Row 6 purl1 knit 10 purl 1
row 7 Knit2tog knit2 YO knit4
YO knit2 SSK
row 8 Knit all

The rest of the pattern is knit the same as the original Cookie A pattern but uses 12/12/12/12 instead of 16 etc. :)

Wow, how cute. And your son has extremely good taste in yarns. What size is the sock? Any chance I could have the resized pattern? I'd love to knit them for my nephew. It's his birthday in October.
