Crochet Monkey Two!

September 3rd, 2008 · 4 Comments

I made another crochet monkey for my daughter and I tested my pattern out.  I didn’t find any errors, but I did change something, and I think the monkey looks better with this change.

On the instructions for the Head, Number 7 is changed, and Number 8 is eliminated.  These changes make the neck less skinny and I like the look better!

  1. With color B, chain 2.
  2. 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Mark first st for beginning of round and move marker up for each round.
  3. 2 sc in each sc around – 12 sc.
  4. *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc* around – 18 sc
  5. sc around for three rounds – 18 sc each round.
  6. *sc dec, sc* around – 12 sc
  7. sc dec around – 6 sc Instead I did  *sc dec, sc* around – 8 sc
  8. *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc* around – 8 sc Eliminate this row. It is not necessary with change.
  9. At end of last round work a slip stitch and finish off leaving a long tail for sewing onto body during assembly.
  10. I stuff head later, after sewing on snout.
I also gave this monkey a smile, instead of a straight stitch for the mouth!
Here is a photo of the revised monkey:
