I am very much a visual learner, and color is the most important art element to me. I always notice color first. I am an elementary school Visual Arts teacher, K-8. I paint, illustrate, knit, and design knitting patterns in my free time. There in lies the reason I call myself "Snow Day Artist" - I'm always looking for 'free time'. My studio is in a 200 year old farm house I share with my husband, and there's always a few chickens roaming the yard. I have a quirky streak that comes out in my knitting and illustrating, it's a fun world to live in.

This quick project makes Fingerless Monkey Mittens that are soft, very stretchy, and fun. You'll love them!
The pattern is 6 pages of easy to follow directions with 12 instructional photos and charts for stitching the face. A gallery of photos show all sizes up close. Final measurements are given and suggested yarns. You'll be making these for everyone!
Basic knitting skills are all that's needed - these are easy to make.
These mittens are either knit with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together and knitted as if one strand (any Worsted Weight yarn will do) - or, a single strand of Bulky or Roving weight yarn - instructions are for either. There are no side seams - these monkeys are knit on a set of double pointed needles. Do up a pair over the weekend!
Do you or someone you know need a little Sock Monkey love? - Here is your answer!
Yardage and yarns used depend on size and choice of yarn.
Yardage for each size mitten are in the pattern.
Yarn in photo is: Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride Worsted Weight: Grey Heather & Peace Fleece Worsted Weight: Negotiation Gray.
