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!! Please note this listing is for an instant downloadable knitting pattern, not a physical item.

Huggable Bears
I learnt the art of knitting when I was about 5 years old. Even at that age I was never happy to follow a pattern, always wanting to try something different. After a shoulder injury I found I couldn't knit anything heavy and out of sheer boredom I found myself knitting a bear. I didn't like the finished bear and thought I could do better myself so after a lot of frustrating frogging Huggable Bear was born. I love creating these bears and other animals, or should I say watching them create themselves, no two are ever alike.
