M is for Monkey: Crochet Monkey Applique
Here is Day 13 of my 26 Days of Crochet Animal Alphabet Appliques! M is for Monkey
I'm bananas over this silly, smiling monkey! I think he looks a little like Curious-George and could even be more like the cartoon character if you added bigger eyes and a full smile. Crochet 5 of these and you got yourself a 5-little-monkeys-jumping-on-the-bed interactive story. So much you could do with this one!
- Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in beige and honey (You guys know how much I LOVE Vanna's Choice Honey!) and a little bit of black for the face.
- Size G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqué and vice versa)
- Tapestry needle
Abbreviations: Magic Ring Tutorial Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
Monkey Applique Pattern: Starting with beige yarn
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 6 SC in ring, join, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around (12 SC)
Round 3: 2 SC in each stitch around (24 SC)
Round 4: 2 SC in first, SC in next, repeat around, join, chain 1 (36 SC)
Round 5: Skip one stitch and make 6 DC all in next stitch, skip one stitch, make a SC in next two, skip a stitch, 6 DC all in one, skip a stitch, join with sl st.
Change to brown yarn
SC in each stitch around making DC in the stitches between the humps on top. Join to first SC. To make the ears:
Attach yarn to one side of head, chain 1 and skip a stitch, make 6 DC all in next stitch, join w slip stitch in next. Fasten off
On other side of head attach yarn and do the same. Fasten off and weave in ends.
Stitch on eyes, nose and half smile with tapestry and black yarn.
Sorry guys, I didn't have a chance to make a step-by-step picture tutorial for this one. But I think this one is pretty simple since it works in rounds and the stitches look clear in the main picture. If there is any confusion I am happy to add a picture tutorial in later :)
