Mr Ziggy

After completing Jason's Ribbed Socks, I had some leftover yarn, and since I love the colors and the look of these socks, what would be better then knitting a sock monkey with it? So now the boyfriend has a monkey friend to match his socks. I decided to call him Mr Ziggy, and I find him absolutely adorable!

Mr Ziggy:
Yarn:  Patons Kroy Socks Ragg Shades in Grey Brown Marl
Needle Size: US Size 3 (3.25mm) DPNs
Pattern Source:  A New Sock Monkey from the book Itty-Bitty Toys

I did not follow the pattern for the hair, and instead made him a mohawk, which seemed more suitable for his personality. This was a great, quick knit, which yielded great results. You can really customize the monkey, and give it some personality.


  1. Hi - I"m wondering how long this took you to knit? I'm not a super fast knitter but hoping I can complete over the weekend.... LOVE the colors!


    1. I am sorry it took so long for me to answer! It took me a day to knit this up - not long at all. If you are a fast knitter and have some time, I don't think this should be a problem to do in a weekend.
