New Pattern: Baby Sock Monkey

I was asked some time ago to make a miniature baby sock monkey.
I LOOOVE sock monkeys!!
Even if I have never had one I think that they are so funny.
The customer was so happy with her new baby sock monkey, that I thought I could make a pattern out of it.
The one I made was smaaaaaller than the one of the new pattern, but as you know I am insane when I challenge myself in going smaller and smaller.
This one is crocheted with a 0.8mm hook and #12 cotton thread and is very easy to make (or so I suppose).
The worst part of making it was taking pictures!
It's a week since we have fog here and even if outside there's a nice light, taking pictures inside is a nightmare!
Finally here is what I came up with:


  1. Es un monito maravilloso, me encanta!!

    1. Thank you so much for asking. As I previous said it is on sale in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/66185831/pdf-pattern-amigurumi-crochet-tutorial
      If you are new to crochet you could try to work it with worsted weight yarn and a bigger hook and then go smaller and smaller.


Long overdue post!!
