Monkeying Around

Another opportunity to make a monkey---missed! Instead, another pair of my favorite brown monkey socks were born. If they fit my grandson, they will be his.
Yarn: Järbo Garn Mini Raggi - 75% wool, 25% Nylon, colorway 68074, brown.
Pattern: Improvised, using the Band Heel spreadsheet. No gusset!
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments: The Band Heel seems to fit just fine. You might not even notice the difference between it and a regular flap. But it sure is nice not to have to do the gusset thing. Give it a try on your next pair of socks!

That heel looks great! If I ever get back to socks, I'm going to give it a try!
