Product description

Rainy days call for blanket forts and card games and a playful pullover with a cozy shawl collar. Inspired by the lovable toy, Sock Monkey uses two strands of Loft held together for a marled effect and a plump fabric. If you don’t wish to nod to the classic nursery companion, substitute colors and you’ve got a simply timeless sportswear garment. The body and sleeves are worked in the round to the armholes; the yoke is completed flat to the shoulders and seamed to the set-in sleeves. The ribbing is worked with a smaller needle and a single strand of yarn. Generous cuffs are easily turned up or down to allow for an extra year’s wear.
