I am knitting a sock monkey and am trying to make it fuzzy with fun fur. Not having any issues with dropped stitches, but is there a special way to get the majority of the fur on the outside? I am knitting in the round on DPNs.

I have tried using a crochet hook to pull the fur out, but it takes forever and I can't get it even. I also tried pulling each stitch way out and then tightening it again, but minimal success there as well.

Thanks!

Yes. I knitted a webcomic.

I know that single crochet in the round is fuzzier on the wrong side.

Maybe reverse stocking stitch is fuzzier? Otherwise, rubbing it with a bit of velcro (The hook part) might bring some of the fuzz to the right side?
