Pattern Description:

Create your own jungle (or desert or Hawaiian luau or tropical paradise) complete with monkey's swinging through palm trees eating bananas!

Perfect for a baby's room or theme'd party!

That's right. This pattern includes instructions to make an 8 foot tree, a monkey with hands that can really grip and a delicious banana to eat.

CROCHET MONKEY
Tail or no tail? Smooth belly or hairy? Black, orange or brown?

No matter. This pattern includes all sorts of variations for creating your favorite furry little monkey.

The hands and feet really grip because there are fuzzy sticks crocheted inside. (Edges can be sharp, so don't include fuzzy sticks in toys made for babies or small children).

The arms and legs have elbow and knee joints making these furry creatures even more fun to play with.

CROCHET BANANA
Make a bunch cause these delicous crocheted fruits are easy and quick to make. THey make the perfect accessory to every monkey.

CROCHET PALM TREE
At 8 foot tall, your friends are sure to be impressed with your crochet skills.

It's the details that make this so realistic. The crocodile stitches at the top of the tree resemble cut palm branches. The loop stitch grass looks like grass. Even the trunk has fun details created with various size stitches.

The palm tree is very mobile....perfect for decorating a party or baby room. The base is a Christmas tree stand and the trunk is a 3" drainage pipe. These and other materials can be found at your local hardware store.
