Monkeys and children go naturally together - and Uakari makes it easy to have a suit for your own little monkey. Uakari is knit in pieces and seamed, then the hood is picked up and knit, with short row shaping so it won't fall off while climbing and hanging. This pattern can be used as a basic template for many different animals by changing the colors and the ears. Quick instructions for bear, mouse, and rabbit ears are included.

I've dabbled in most crafts, but now, I mostly I design knitwear. Always pushing to be more imaginative and innovative, I combine thoughtful details and techniques to create a beautiful product that is a joy to wear. I specialize in creating stitch patterns and inspiring modification. All my life I have been a maker and used my hands to create. Knitting was one of the earliest crafts I was taught. I was four when my mother showed me the basics. I have grown to love knitting for it's variety - it can be simple and meditative, geometric and challenging, sculptural, fashionable, or any and all of the above in the same garment at different stages.
