Pattern Description:

Monkeys and children go naturally together - and Uakari makes it easy to have a suit for your own little monkey. Uakari is knit in pieces and seamed, then the hood is picked up and knit, with short row shaping so it won't fall off while climbing and hanging.

This pattern can be used as a basic template for many different animals by changing the colors and the ears. Quick instructions for bear, mouse, and rabbit ears are included.
