This crochet pattern is a cute and cuddly amigurumi monkey called Micky. (You can call your monkey whatever you like :) )
Gauge is not essential for this project; however it is important to check your hook and yarn choices result in tight even stitches to make sure the stuffing doesn’t show.
Micky’s eyes, tummy and inner ears are made using felt and are sewn on. A template is provided at the end of the pattern, where you will also find a link to a tutorial on my blog. As these shapes are circular you could easily make them bigger or smaller or change the shape. You could even crochet little circles or use safety eyes. The choice is yours!
When stuffing your teddy make sure to stuff firmly but don’t overstuff.
This pattern is worked in continuous spirals and does not need to be joined in the round.
Any aran weight yarn will do to make this pattern, I prefer the chosen yarn for its broad colour options and its softness.
You could even make your Micky in a different weight yarn to make him bigger or smaller, just be sure to change the size of the felt shapes to fit your monkey!
