Pattern: http://www.knitty.com/issuewinter06/PATTmonkey.html by Cookie A.
Yarn: 100% Superwash Merino Wool from Etsy
Needles: Size 2 DPNS
Notes: Um...I love them! I knit the purls just because I like the way it looks better. It gives them a cleaner look and makes the pattern stand out more.

I loooooooove them. The yarn is so great. :heart:

Those are really pretty, love the pattern and the yarn. Thanks for posting the link! Could you, please, explain to me what you meant by "I knit the purls"? Don't have a clue as to that.

TIA!

Wow, those are beautiful! I love the colorway you chose. I'm working on a pair of Monkeys right now, and hope they turn out half as lovely as yours. I may try no-purl Monkeys next time, just to see how it compares.

Thanks!! The yarn is so great, it was love at first sight.

As for the knitting the purls, the pattern calls for purl stitches in rows 2-9 but instead of purling them, I just knit the whole thing.

Yours will be lovely! I also found that no purling made it go by much quicker.
