Stitch Instructions
k:knit CO: Cast On
ybwd: Move working yarn to back yfwd: Bring working yarn in front
p:purl BO: Bind off
DPN(s): Double pointed needle(s) unwkd: unworked
rem: remain(s), remaining sl: slip st purl-wise from left needle to right needle.
st(s): stitch(es)
Turkish Cast on: Tie a slip-knot in the yarn, hold DPN horizontally with the circular needle below it. Place the slip-knot onto both
needles & tighten with working yarn hanging down. Wrap yarn counterclockwise towards the right until you have half the number of
wraps as CO sts (pattern says “CO 32”, you should have 16 wraps.) yfwd between the two needles. Slide circular needle towards the
right, positioning the nylon cable in the bottom half of loops with the tips dangling. Insert a third needle purl-wise into the first loop &
purl a stitch & slide it off the left needle as you would do with regular sts. Repeat this step for the appropriate number of loops on the
left needle. You now have the proper number of stitches. Half on 1 needle and half on the other.
p enc (purl encroachment): sl 1, pick up 1 st below next st, p2tog
k enc (knit encroachment): sl 1, pick up 1 st below next st, k2tog.
Consolidation: Divide stitches evenly onto two needles. While holding them horizontal & parallel to each other, insert a third needle
knit-wise into the first stitch on your front needle then insert the needle knit-wise into the first stitch on the back needle. k2tog.
m1(a): make a backward loop and place it on the right hand needle with the working yarn pointing away from you (You may substitute
your favorite increase stitch if you prefer)
k2tog tbl: insert right needle into two stitches purl-wise through the back loop of each stitch, knit them together. (You may substitute
k2tog if you prefer, I use this method simply for ease.)
I-Cord: Cast on 4 sts using DPNs. Knit, do not turn, slide the sts back to the beginning of the needle and k the row again. Continue in
this manner until you have a short length of knitting, pull down on the cord and the gap at the back will close. Continue until the cord is
the length you desire.
KFB: knit next st, do not slide off the left needle yet. Instead ybwd, insert right needle purl-wise into the back loop of the same stitch
and knit. You now have two sts where you once had one.

not pull tight yet. Finish filling with fiber-fill until you are satisfied with the shape and firmness, pull tight & tie off. Weave in
any loose ends.
Eyes: Using Y1, CO 16 sts, join ends and knit in the round,
Round 1: knit all sts,
Round 2: (k2tog) x 8,
Cut yarn leaving a 6-inch tail and using a tapestry needle thread it through the stitches, removing them from the knitting
needles as you go. Pull tight enough to close any gap, pass the needle from front to back through the center of the eye, then
through the head at the point where you’d like the eyes to be centered. This tacks the eye into place a little so that you can
stitch it into place with a needle and thread.

Using Y2 and the Turkish Cast On Method (see stitch instructions), CO 24, turn *Don’t forget to purl a row. The slip knot does
not count as one of your stitches. Work short rows on 2 DPNs with only 12 sts.

Row 11: Sl 1, k across, do not k enc because you are at the end of the row. Do not turn because you are at the end of the
short rows.
Rounds 1-3: knit all sts,
Divide stitches evenly onto two DP needles, Stuff the ears with a little poly fill and consolidate as you did for the legs and
arms. You now have 12 live stitches. Cut yarn to leave about 12 inches of yarn to secure the ears to the head along the
column of stitches that lead from the edge of the snout to the top of the head. There should be about 14 and you can just
stitch them into place as evenly as possible. *I like to work with two sts at a time. Run the through the first two stitches on the ear, then through
the first two sts on the head. Then just repeat this and tie off.*

Row 61: sl1, p until 2 sts rem, p enc, turn, (1 st rem unwkd)
Row 62: sl1, k until 2 sts rem, k enc, turn, (1 sts rem unwkd)
Row 63: sl1, p rem sts, turn. You now have a double sided fabric point.
Row 64: sl1, k rem sts. Pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (15 sts)
Row 65: p2tog, p rem sts, pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (15 sts)
*Row 66: k2tog, k rem sts, pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (15 sts)
Row 67: p2tog, p rem sts, pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (15 sts)*
Rows 68-89: Repeat from * to * 11 more times.
Row 90: k2tog, k1, k2tog, knit until 4 sts rem, k2tog, k2, pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (13 sts)
Row 91: p2tog, p rem sts, turn, (12 sts)
Row 92: k2tog, k1, k2tog, knit until 4 sts rem, k2tog, k2, pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (11 sts)
Row 93: p2tog, p rem sts, turn, (10 sts)
Row 94: k2tog, k1, k2tog, knit until 4 sts rem, k2tog, k2, pick up 1 st along the bias edge of the first part of the ear. (9 sts)
Row 95: p2tog, p rem sts, turn, (8 sts)
Cut the yarn leaving enough length that you can use it to secure the ear to the head. At the top of the head you’ll see to subtle
lines that formed along the increase decrease lines. Secure each ear along these lines.

Finishing
Use a Basic Chain stitch to embroider on the mouth, eyebrows, and nostrils. Use a Star Stitch to finish the eyes. Voila! You
have your very own Sock Monkee 2.1!
