Pattern Description:

In my quest to supply entertainment for my grandson I designed a mini monkey. He loves him as he's totally flexible and easy to carry around.

Mini the Monkey is a petite monkey, measuring 30cm/12 inches from head to toe. His tummy measures 25cm/10 inches. His body and legs are knitted as one piece with knee and elbow joints to make him completely flexible.

He can be knitted with any worsted weight/Aran yarns. I have tried eyelash, boa, fleecy yarns such as Snowflake and Pipsqueak, or soft chenille.

He is knitted flat and assembled.

This pattern includes a detailed step-by-step guide; full of photos and tips to help you assemble your monkey. Print warning: It may be best to print just the knitting directions and save the step-by-step guide to refer to as and when necessary on screen or it will drink your printer ink and eat your paper!!
