Do you have the monkey pattern converted to a toe up pattern? I'm wanting to knit them toe up. BTW...it's look great! I'm hooked on toe-ups.

I have the same question as Deborah. I've seen toe up Monkeys that take out the purl stitches and toe up Monkeys that are upside down, but is your version true to the pattern? That's what I'm looking for...

They look fantastic!

I did the toes ups and i just followed the pattern ... it was upside down .. hee hee ..used the turkish cast on for the toes .. then i just started with the pattern from 1 to 11rows .. for the foot i did 5 repeats .. then i did the short row heal .. then think 7 or 9 repeats for the leg .. then the k1 p1 shown on the pattern for bout 2 1/2 inches sorry took so long to reply
