SO cute! Might have to try it out :)

Oh you could totally make him a winking sock monkey - stitch a closed eye? haha

Love it! I'd like to know what yarn you used for the main part as well, Thanks!

He could be a pirate monkey with a quick patch made of black yarn. ; )

I'm going to see if I have some good yarn and work one up tonight for the exchange.

Thank you for this pattern. I had a Sock Monkey baby shower for my daughter in January. This was the favor. I made 42 of them and they were a huge hit!
