Sock Monkey items have become a passion for me. I have dug out my mothers hand written pattern for making the Newfoundland or what we call Caper Mittens and have decided to make them in the sock monkey colours. So much fun!... The whole thing is to try to decifer the handwriting and her assumption that you can figure out the pattern.. hahahaha. She made then many moons ago and basically just wrote down the Readers digest condensed version for her own use. Now it is up to me to figure out what she is trying to say in the pattern.. I Spent a few days figuring it out and writing it down so I can make the pattern for resale. Done.. Now I am making a mitten to make sure that what I have written down is actually going to work out!. I am up to the thumb part now, so it is time to take a break and have some lunch and then settle back down to complete the pattern.
Here is a picture of what I have done so far
The thumb will be solid grey as well as the top of the mitten
I will be putting the pattern up for sale as soon as it is tested
