Monkey See, Monkey Do


For a while now, I’ve had the desire to make knitted monkeys. There are a couple of great monkey patterns online, like Mr. Dangly or Tucker the Monkey. In Kath Dalmeny’s World of Knitted Toys, there are three species of primates, and I have a small amount of burnt orange yarn in my stash that’d make a great orangutan.


But then I saw puchitomato’s crocheted amigurumi tropical monkeys and I just had to make one (and I’m not alone). The pattern is my own concoction with some heavy reverse engineering based on the pics.

This little guy is made of worsted weight yarn with two craft eyes, polyester filling and peas, a pipe cleaner inside the tail, and a pink bead for belly button. He measures about 17 cm (6.5") sitting down.
