Love it! Made it for my grand-daughter. She is almost 2. This monkey is big. So I scaled him down some. I also changed his eyes. Now he is getting hugs!


awesome! i love it!

I made the Soft Plush Sock Monkey. It was really easy and only took me about twoweeks, but I wasn't workingon it consistently or it could have taken less time, probably just a couple of days for a slow crocheter. But if you change the colors, it is just so adorable. I posted a picture of it on Facebook's All Free Crochet. Go take a look. It's so easy.
