Crochet Amigurumi Monkey.

So quite recently I found a passion for crocheting. I think I caught the ‘crocheting bug’ from my Mom as she is constantly making baby blankets, hats or anything that she can think of. I started off by making simple blankets to get into it but I got quite bored of the same old square pattern coming out. I then decided that I would look to see how difficult it is to make amigurumi. I started off by copying patterns off Pinterest to get into the hang of making different shapes.

I then decided that I wanted to combine most of the things I have learned to created something different. There were a number of different combinations I used to create this monkey, I used ears that were from a giraffe, legs that were from a bear, face hat was from a dog and body that was from a frog. I posted a picture of this a while back and I had a few people comment saying that I was ‘talented’ or that the monkey was ‘incredible’. I decided to share the pattern so anybody is able to have a go at making them.
