Amigurumi crochet monkey pattern

Amigurumi crochet monkey pattern

Presenting to your attention a set of friendly monkeys! The crochet monkey is pretty small – just 10 cm tall.
You can make different fruits for it or come up with interesting clothing, even a skirt made of palm leaves – that would be fun!

If you crochet a monkey for a child under three years old, it is better not to use small plastic parts, such as beads and buttons. Instead of them you can embroider the desired details.

Materials:

  • YarnArt Baby (100% acryl, 50 g/ 150 m) of brown colour
  • 100% cotton yarn (100 g/ 430 m) of beige colour for muzzle
  • 2.0 and 2.5 mm crochet hooks
  • Polyfill
  • Beads for eyes
  • Needle for sewing

Stuff the leg. Cut off the yarn, draw the stitches together.

Cut the yarn leaving 130 cm. Put the yarn in the sewing needle. Sew 2 pairs of stitches between the legs of the monkey. You should have a circle of 8 stitches. Crochet the second leg from the rest of the yarn. Stuff the leg and draw the stitches together.
