Ruby's Monkey




I like to sail close to the wind when it comes to finishing projects with a deadline, and this monkey has been finished right in the nick of time. You may recognise the pattern as a female version of this monkey, and is an order for a friends little girl as a Christmas gift.
The pattern is available free online here, and is a relatively easy amigurumi project for beginners. I hand embroidered the face and added a button to the top of the legs to make them slightly hinged and moveable. It' s always a bit nerve racking when you crochet an item to order, so I hope it meets all expectations...
