Finally the sock monkey amigurumi pattern is here, I can’t wait to show you this after I have finished crochet it. I designed this cuddly sock monkey amigurumi pattern based on the popular sock monkey I have sewed and share the tutorial a few years ago. I have been wanting to come out this sock monkey amigurumi pattern for good because I know that many of you will like it as much as the sock monkey.
Since I have some left over yarns from the Sunburst Granny Square Blanket project I’ve finished a while ago, the yarn colors are perfect for the sock monkey amigurumi. Thus, I picked white, melon red, pistachio green and pastel blue as the color of my monkey. You may adapt the amigurumi pattern with other sizes of stripes or even in solid color.
The monkey measures about 18″ tall, crochet from light worsted acrylic yarn. You may increase the size of the monkey by using higher heavier weight yarn like worsted yarn or 10 ply yarn with an appropriate hook size (click here to determine the correct hook size to use for amigurumi). Same theory applies to a smaller monkey by using lighter weight yarn.
The monkey makes a great soft toy gift for kids especially during the upcoming Christmas. Start crochet it now to make a bundle of them in several sizes as gifts, it is going to be a treasure to keep forever. Click here to check out more pattern on toys to make.
“Aren’t they look like a pair of twin brothers?”
Here are the twin brothers monkey, the sock monkey (left) and the amigurumi monkey. Aren’t they look alike even though they are not identical twins (one sewed from socks and one crochet from yarn). 🙂
