TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. The pattern incorporates intarsia colour-work to make the monkey’s head, and short rows to make the bananas. Instructions on how to work short rows are also included in the pattern.

FINISHED SIZE: The monkey is approximately 31cm tall, and the banana 12cm long.
