This pattern I have called Baboon/Mandrill, although I think to be accurate he is a Mandrill. Apart from his soulful deep eyes, I do hope you notice his prominent brow and his brilliant bright bottom. This toy is not an easy knit. Well actually that isn't true. The knitting is really quite straight forward, but there is some sewing up. But the pattern has photographs and diagrams to help you. I have recommended a wool: Sirdar Escape DK, and although any other DoubleKnit wool will work, I think the texture and colour changes of this wool works really well. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Knitting Sewing Up SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished Baboon is approx 22cm long PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Sirdar Escape DK COLORWAY Shade 181

Recommended with this pattern

The inspiration for my knitting patterns often comes from nature. I love little knitting projects, and try my hardest to be realistic with my plant and animal designs. Often my projects start from something very personal: my own house or my husband's first car. Then I develop them into something that I think will be appealing. I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school. My own children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
