Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should know how to knit and purl before attempting this pattern

Pattern Description:

Who can resist a cute little monkey? Cheeky Little Monkeys make great cat toys, ornaments, keyrings, stocking stuffers or even finger puppets. These sweet, felted fellows are a quick knit - just in time for last minute gift giving!

This pattern includes instructions for knitting it flat AND in the round.


16 sts and 22 rows= 4" (10cm) in Stockinette Stitch, before felting.

If you would prefer not to
felt your Cheeky, knitting with a tighter gauge --with either bulkier yarn or smaller needles--will produce a fi rmer fabric.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Body circumference: 3.5" (9cm)
  • Body length (head to toe): 7" (18cm)


  • 1 skein (about 160 yd/146m) of worsted weight 100% wool yarn - Dark Brown
  • Small amounts of worsted weight 100% wool yarn - White
  • Note: Often, white yarn has been bleached and can not be easily felted. Make sure that the yarn you purchase is indeed feltable.
  • For Knitting in the Round: One set of four or fi ve US #9/5.5 mm double pointed needles (I recommend 5" Brittany Needles because they're less fi dgety)
  • For Knitting Flat: One set(s) US #9/5.5 mm straight needles and Two US #9/5.5 mm double pointed needles for making i-cord (DPNs with point protectors can also be used instead of straight needles)

You Will Also Need:

  • Tapestry needle
  • Split ring stitch markers or pieces of scrap yarn
  • Needle felting needles (optional)
  • Small amount of fi berfi ll or wool roving for stuffi ng
  • Beads or small eyes (optional)
  • Embroidery thread and needle (optional)
  • Washing machine
  • Pillowcase for felting in washing machine
