Micky the Monkey is having a banana snack! Designed by Amanda Berry @fluffandfuzz, Micky is knitted in acrylic DK yarns on single pointed needles (not in the round), and the arms, legs, tail and banana are i-cord pieces worked on two DPNs. The face incorporates intarsia colour-work. For confident beginners and above, other techniques used include casting on and off, knits, purls, increases and decreases, and seaming to finish.
