For one of our favorite yarnbombs, we turned a preschool gate into a banana forest with a cheeky monkey stealing a banana. She was just too cute not to share, so we worked her up in two sizes: a baby and a mother. You can use any weight yarn for this project. The small monkey uses a small hook, yarn held single, and single crochet stitches throughout. The large monkey uses a larger hook, yarn held double, and half double crochet stitches. You can use this simple trick on almost any pattern where gauge and fit aren't critical. Pattern download: After checkout you'll find a link to immediately download this 2-page pdf file. Sizes: 18 and 30 inches tall. Skill level: Intermediate Required skills: It's about one step up from a beginner's pattern, using single crochet, increase, decrease, and half double crochet stitches. Materials: Any yarn weight and the appropriate hook will work for this project. For worsted weight yarn, you'll need about 600 yards for the small and 1700 yards for the large. You'll also need stuffing and a tapestry needle. No refunds on patterns once patterns have been downloaded.
