Pattern: Monkey

Designed by Stephanie Jessica Lau - All About Ami


Extracted from web for members of 4crafter.com

Meet Kiko, our kawaii baby monkey that we designed as a part of our
Chinese New Year series! He is adorably sweet with his poseable tail,
arms and legs, and he is clutching on tightly to his favourite snack of all: a
banana!

Materials:

 lightweight tan yarn, level 3 (I used “Patons Astra” in “Medium tan”)


 lightweight beige yarn, level 3 (I used “Patons Astra” in “Aran”)
 sport weight yellow yarn, level 2 (I used Lion Brand Bonbons in the colour
combo “Beach”)

 2 mm Clover Amour crochet hook
 Clover Bent Tip Tapestry Needles
 Fiberfill
 9 mm safety eyes
 Brown embroidery floss (for nose/mouth and banana)
 Beige felt (for lining of ear)
 Clover lock ring stitch markers
 Optional: Decorative wiring, pink sharpie/paint/blush for cheeks

Note: I worked in continuous rounds (vs. joined rounds). The wiring in


this amigurumi is optional and should be used with caution as it is not safe
for babies and young children. The wiring makes the tail and limbs
poseable but is not necessary.

with all my photos!

BODY

Using tan yarn, begin forming triangular base:

Chain 2 (we will be working in rows for this part).

R1: Starting from second chain from hook, Sc 1 (1 st)

R2: Chain 1, turn. Inc (2 sts)

R3: Chain 1, turn. Inc x 2 (4 sts)

R4: Chain 1, turn. Inc, Sc 2, Inc (6 sts)

R7: Chain 1, turn. Sc 8 (8 sts)

R8: Chain 1, turn. Inc, Sc 6, Inc (10 sts)

R9: Chain 1, turn. Sc 10 (10 sts)

www.4Crafter.com -7-
R10: Crochet counter-clockwise around triangle starting from the red dot
as indicated in diagram above (we will now be working in rounds): 8 sc
down the side, 1 sc at the bottom, 8 sc up the other side, 10 sc across the
top.

R17: Sc 21 (21 sts)

R18: *Sc 5, Dec*, rep 3 times (18 sts)

R19-20: Sc 18 (18 sts)

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. If using wiring, cut at least
15″/38 cm of decorative wiring. Form one end into triangular base that
can fit into bottom of body. Place triangular base into bottom of body
while poking other end of wire out of corner of triangle to form
tail. Secure triangular base by tying each corner with yarn. Bend end of
tail and wrap electrical tape around it to prevent end from protruding out.
Our final tail measured approximately 23 cm/9″ (with end bent).

Form wire arms and legs as shown below, once again wrapping ends with
electrical tape. Our limbs measured approximately 3 cm/1.18″ long after

being bent.. You can also crochet the limbs first to gauge what size you
need to make the wire inserts.

Now stuff and sew body to head. Attach head so that it is tilting
downwards, near where the beige face becomes the brown head.

ARMS (make 2)

Using beige yarn (no need to stuff if using wiring),

R1: 6 sc in Magic Ring (6 sts)

R2: *Sc 2, Inc*, rep 2 times (8 sts)

R3-4: Sc 8 (8 sts)

Switch to tan yarn,

R5-8: Sc 8 (8 sts)

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. Insert onto wire arms and sew
onto body.

LEGS (make 2)

Using beige yarn (no need to stuff if using wiring),

R1: 6 sc in Magic Ring (6 sts)

R2: *Sc 2, Inc*, rep 2 times (8 sts)

R3: *Sc 3, Inc*, rep 2 times (10 sts)

R4: Sc 10 (10 sts)

Switch to tan yarn,

R5-8: Sc 10 (10 sts)

Fasten off and leave long end for sewing. Insert onto wire legs and sew
onto body.

TAIL

Using tan yarn (no need to stuff if using wiring),

R1: 6 sc in Magic Ring (5 sts)

R2-44: Sc 6 (6 sts).

Adjust tail to your desired length (shorter or longer based on your wire
tail). Insert onto wire tail and attach to back of body.

NOTES if not using wiring:

 Stuff arms and legs very lightly.


 Minimally stuff the tail (perhaps just at base where tail joins with body) to
prevent the tail from weighing down the monkey too much. Shorten the tail
length (possibly to half) to minimize weight.
 Do not stuff the body too much- make sure that the triangular base can be
inverted so that your monkey can sit well. If you stuff it too much, the
triangular base will puff out, making it impossible for your monkey to sit and
likely to topple over.

BANANA
