Monkey See, Monkey Do

 I finished Lakin’s mini-Monkey socks last night and she tried them on today and pronounced them “perfect”. 🙂

These socks are modified from the Monkey pattern by Cookie A. I made my own and Lakin wanted a matching pair. I had enough yarn but knew that I’d have to change the pattern. The original Monkey chart is 16 stitches across and Lakin’s socks needed to be 48 stitches around, so I centered the charts on the front and back and added 8 knit stitches to the sides. Add in the picot top edge and I think they look pretty darn cool! 🙂

Pattern: modified Monkey by Cookie A (see above for details)
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns – Spring colorway
Needles: size 3 Addi Turbos
