- DK yarn
- 3.5mm crochet hook
Making: The completed monkey should measure about 25cm in height. The yarn recommended for this pattern is WoolBox UK Imagine Classic Anti-Pilling DK.

Milo The Monkey
Uses: Meet Milo the Monkey, a playful creature with unwavering charm and warmth. Its adorable presence welcomes smiles, while the intricate details add a unique appeal that stirs admiration in people of all ages.
- DK yarn
- 3.5mm crochet hook
Making: The body is initiated through a magical circle encompassing six single crochets, growing progressively with each round by a precise sequence of stitches and increases. As the body forms, rounds of single crochets resonate to build the desired length, with later rounds seeing systematic decreases until the shape is complete. Transitioning to the head, the same magical beginning unfolds, with color changes subtly woven into the mix to give Milo that distinct visage. Accurate increases mirrored in this segment, followed by rounds kept in constancy for a smooth, rounded cranium. As the head culminates, decreases are methodically placed to taper to a close, ready to be filled with plush stuffing, giving Milo a huggable form.
Uses: Perfect for sharing hugs, decorating rooms, and bringing smiles, this adorable monkey has something special for everyone, young and old.
- Super bulky yarn
- 3.5mm crochet hook
Making: Start with a chain of 2 stitches with light brown yarn. Increase stitches each round to create the basic shape. Switch to dark brown yarn after a specific number of rounds. Like the legs, begin with a chain of 2 using light brown yarn. After several rounds, switch to the dark brown yarn. This is made as one piece, starting with dark brown yarn. The dimensions gradually increase, then decrease, mimicking a monkey’s body and head anatomy. Regular stuffing is recommended to maintain the desired shape. The monkey comes together by sewing all the pieces to the body. The eye patches, muzzle, arms, legs, ears, and tail are all carefully positioned and attached to the body, yielding a delightfully cuddly plush monkey.
Uses: The Buddy Monkey is your go-everywhere pal! It’s wonderful for those who love to keep a token of happiness nearby, whether on their workstation or by the bedside.
- DK yarn
- 2.5mm crochet hook
Making: Like with most amigurumi designs, the head and body of the Buddy Monkey are created as a single piece. The shape is achieved by increasing and decreasing stitches as required. Arms (Make 2) and Legs (Make 2): These are made separately! Each starts with a small number of stitches and is gradually increased to form a rounded shape. All the parts are then sewn together to form the endearing Buddy Monkey.
Penelope The Purple Monkey
Uses: This little gem is not just a display piece! Its soft structure also doubles as an adorable pillow for afternoon naps. From its usefulness in fostering imaginative play to making your interior a tad more whimsical, Penelope embraces various roles and shines in each.
- Worsted yarn
- 5mm crochet hook
Making: Penelope's head, body, arms, legs, and tail are all created using a continuous round pattern. The head and body are constructed separately, then carefully sewn together to give shape to Penelope. The head starts with a magic circle, and as you work in rounds, there are instructions for increasing (2 sc into next st) and decreasing (sc dec over next 2 sts) to form the shape. Once the head is formed and stuffed, the monkey face, safety eyes, and embroidered nose are attached. The body construction follows a similar pattern, with increases in the beginning and decreases towards the end to form its shape. The tummy is a simple circle worked in rounds. Once you have all the parts of Penelope ready, they are carefully stitched together, beginning with the attachment of the head to the body.
Uses: Made from a soft yarn, the Rainbow Monkey is excellent for cuddles and can serve as a gentle sleep companion. Whether for playtime adventures or brightening up a room, the Rainbow Monkey is the perfect choice.
- Red Heart Yarn
- 3.25mm crochet hook
Making: You begin with white yarn and make 5 identical pieces, which serve as the arms, legs, and tail. You start with 10 chain stitches (ch), then work single crochet (sc) in each stitch. After this, a single crochet is only done in the back loop for several rounds. After attaching colored yarn, you work evenly around, creating a tube. You fill this piece with stuffing and leave a long tail at the end for sewing. The body begins with a chain of 4 stitches (ch 4) that joined together to form a ring. From here on, there are rounds where you make two single crochets (2sc) in each stitch, effectively doubling the number of stitches. Certain rounds are merely repeated with a single crochet in each stitch. Gradually, 'single crochet decrease' (sc dec) stitches are introduced to taper off the body shape. You stuff the body and sew it shut. A chain of 3 stitches generates the ears joined together. Various rounds of single crochet and increases form the ear shape, then sewn onto the head. The final assembly involves meticulously sewing all the created pieces, such as the arms, legs, tail, and head, onto the body to complete the Rainbow Monkey.
