Gotta Love Cute FOs


I have a feeling this little character could be popping up all over the place. The possibilities are endless.


Now, I want to make more monkeys! The pattern is Jacobus, available through Ravelry (not free, but well worth the price of $5.00US). The yarn is some kind of sock yarn that was in my stash, without a label. The pattern can be made using any weight of yarn; you just have to choose a needle size that will give you a firm fabric. Because I was using sock yarn, I used 2.25 mm needles.

Incidentally, the picture on my iPod is of Trinity and Ethan, who had been eating raspberries right off the bush. It is, essentially, a photo of two monkeys. ;)


  1. Super cute!!! i love all three of those monkeys!!! ;)
    I would so love to have one of those "Sock Yarn Monkeys" tho!! Hint, hint, wink, wink!!!

  2. Love the little monkey. Not sure if I would have the patience. I seem to lose interest when working with stuffed critters. :)

    That lace weight wool, you might consider knitting it into place mats, napkin holders, sachet pockets to give as gifts to friends. Things that are easy to make, useful, but not worn next to the skin. :) Just a thought.

    Have a great day.
