2016 in the Chinese calendar marks the year of the fire monkey. And I thought it would be fun to create a free monkey crochet pattern to celebrate this year!
As I started playing around with pattern ideas. And I was struggling to visualise my monkey’s face…
Chinese new year falls on February 8th this year. So I’ve got these Year of Monkey printable hong baos or ‘red’ packets on #designisyay.com ???????? bit.ly/yearofmonkey16 #yearofthemonkey #chinesenewyear #chinesenewyear2016 #printable #freeprintable #diyay_printable #buzzfeeddiy #flatlay #flatlayforever
It also happens the I’ll be missing Wita’s baby shower next week 🙁 which sparked another idea! The free monkey crochet pattern is in honor of all the little monkeys born in the next lunar year. This will run from 8 Feb 2016 – 27 Jan 2017!
Double celebrations! Yay! So excited I could pop! ???? (pun intended!)
Do you know anyone who’s having a baby this year? Why not crochet them a little monkey?
And no toy ever leaves the studio without being tested 😀
I won’t lie I’m a little sad to see him go but I know he’s going to a great home where he’ll be loved forever!
Notes on my Free Monkey Crochet Pattern:
- To work this pattern you should be comfortable changing colour. And familiar with the basics of 3D construction and Amigurumi.
- The pattern’s written using abbreviated American English Crochet Terminology.
- Gauge / Tension is not important for this pattern. Remember you can change the size of your hook and thickness of your yarn to make a bigger or smaller monkey 🙂
