Return of the Pink Sock Monkeys!

October is already here, as is breast cancer awareness month. If you didn’t get around to making a pink sock monkey last year, why not make one now?

The first two pink sock monkeys I made went to women who were undergoing breast cancer treatment. The second set was auctioned to help raise funds for Texas-based breast cancer organizations.

The cool thing about making pink sock monkeys is the special pink Rockford Red Heel socks are sold in 2-pair packages so you can make a sock monkey for yourself and another to give away or donate to a breast cancer charity auction.

Here are step-by-step instructions from last year’s Pink Sock Monkey Craft-along to get you started. It’s as simple as 1-2-3.

  1. Initial Cuts
  2. Assembly
  3. Hair (optional)

If you’re not making a pink sock monkey, what are you doing for breast cancer awareness month?
