The Monkey, master climber, vine swinger and always ready for fun and mischief. The crocheted monkey belongs to a especially cuddly kind and is very popular with the young and old, as plushy toy, keychain or just to lazily lay around.

This Crochet Monkey is exclusively crocheted with chain stitches, slip stitches and single crochet stitches in spiral rounds and is therefore perfectly suitable for beginners.

The depicted Amigurumi Monkey has been crocheted with the “Schachenmayr Catania” yarn with a 2.5 mm crochet hook and has sitting a height of 4.5 cm. Due to its small size, the monkey is also perfect as a pendant for bags and backpacks or simply as a cuddly toy for young and old.
