Just finished these last night---for me! I think this will become my favorite pattern for variegated sock yarn. This is Blue Moon Fiber Arts Silkie in the "Lunasea" colorway -- yarn I picked up this past October at Stitches East, here in Baltimore. Needle: size 1 (2.50mm) 16" inch KnitpPicks Harmony -- 2 circulars method.

I believe it's called "Monkey" because the designer couldn't/wouldn't rest until she had worked out this pattern. She had to get this "monkey" off her back. :wink:

The pattern sure looks interesting with that verigated yarn doesn't it? I was wondering about the name, too, as I see others were!

DH was trying to talk me into trying my hand at sock knitting earlier today... Soon maybe....

Thanks everyone! it's an easy pattern - and a great "first lace" pattern for anyone who wants to try it. Hey, redheadrachel, if you are out there, pick another sock pattern, so I can copy you! :)

Oooooo - I really like that pattern! I'm doing an eyelet pattern sock for my DD right now & I was going to frog the foot part to do St st (save on yarn) but now that I see this I might just have to frog the entire thing & change to Monkey Socks. :figureditout:

Those are cool, they sort of zig and zag don't they? It does work very well with the variegated yarn. But why are they called Monkey Socks? I was expecting the big red heel that becomes the mouth on a sock monkey. :-)
