One my goals for March was to finish Lily’s in-production-for-an-absurdly-long-time crocheted monkey. This poor monkey’s ear-less head sat in my craft bucket for a very long time, and I’m glad she is getting plenty of love to make up for the long wait for the rest of her body!
Loads of kisses,
Plenty of cuddles,
And a nice dose of adventure thrown in for good measure!
Here she is with the rest of our monkey family, all made from the pattern in Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet. I’m not sure how Lily and Emma’s monkeys wound up looking so different since they were made using the exact same set of instructions, but I rarely follow patterns exactly – with all three of these monkeys I only crocheted through the front (I think?) loop, instead of both loops, and that definitely changes the shape. And since I taught myself how to crochet, using my questionable ability to follow written instructions, I never know if I’m doing it “right”. But does it really matter, when they look cute and my kids love them?
