PATTERN RATING: Star Rating. Patterns given are primarily for the clothing that goes on the sock dolls. They are simple, but marked with measurements to help cut out the simple forms to be sewn together. There is a good variety of different sock toys, including the beloved red-heeled sock monkey that has now been around for 50 years!

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating. Instructions are clear for making up the toys, and have lots of illustration to go with them so you know how to cut up the socks and put them together again.

SUMMARY:I believe this is where the sock monkey began. There are over 50 toys in this book, all made from socks.
