Little Monkey Pattern

Two patterns in one week?! Yes! I'm feeling so productive! This is an amigurumi pattern for a monkey plush toy! There's a lot of sewing in this pattern, but I think it's still relatively beginner friendly, just make sure you have plenty of pins ready!



A while back I was commissioned to make a monkey plush, and while that isn’t an animal I can say I’d make on my own time, I decided to make it. Coming up with a unique pattern was quite a challenge for a few reasons. Firstly, there are so many monkey patterns available already (and quite a few that I think are much cuter than my final product) that I knew it would be hard to make it look unique. Secondly, to be blunt, I just don’t really think monkeys are that cute and I’ve had a healthy fear of monkeys since I was a small child. And lastly, it wasn’t intended to be super cutesy like some of my other toys, so I just really didn’t end up loving the end result. Since making the original prototype and the final toy for my customer I’ve changed a couple of things, and now I’m quite a bit happier with the finished result.


For this pattern, I recommend using a main color and an accent color. You can definitely do it all in one color if you prefer though! I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in “Cafe Latte” for the main color and “Buff” for the accent color. I’m interested in seeing what color combinations you guys use though because I think this pattern could look super cool in fun colors!


I hope you guys enjoy this pattern! If you love it, please consider pinning it to your Pinterest so more people can see it! Thanks and lets get to crocheting!

**Follow the pictures below to see how I assemble and attach the face, starting with the eyes and then moving on to the mouth. Add the safety eyes to the eye pieces before sewing them down! Before attaching the mouth would be a great time to embroider the face, but I unfortunately forgot to do that before this step, so I’ll be going back and adding it later. I did however mark it out so you can see how I visualize what I'm about to embroider!




Ears (2):

** I couldn’t decide if I wanted to do the ears in an accent color or not, so if you end up doing them in an accent color, please let me know! I’m curious to see how it would turn out! :D
