Hi again!  Well here we go…let me just say that the blanket itself is a Granny Square!  I made my square about 15 x15 which includes the border.

Ok, next I am sharing a link for the Elephant and the a link for the Banana. I can’t post those directions for the banana since it’s from a magazine.
So here are the Links – This one is for the Blankets with all the different ones you can make http://brittasami.blogspot.se/2012/03/baby-blanket.html and the next one is where I found the banana http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sock-monkey-cuddle-blanket  If you have any problems with them let me know.

Baby Girl Monkey 2So now for my directions for the monkey’s facial features:  I’ve never written a pattern so I’m going to do the best I can. They are pretty basic and easy I hope! Now you know we all have a different tension and I tend to crochet tight.

I used a size G Crochet Hook for all the features of the Monkey including ears and arms.

For the Head I used a size F hook.  This combo worked for me.  You’ll just have to play around and see what works for you after you make the Head.

MC = Magic Circle I like this method but you can do whichever method you like best.
SC = Single Crochet
SS = Slip Stitch
Ch = chain
FO = Finish Off
Stitch Markers

We are working in rounds

Eyes: Make 2
MC, ch 1

Rd 1 – 6 sc in MC, ss to 1st sc ch 1 (6sc)
Rd 2 – 2 sc in each sc around ss in 1st sc to join (12 sc) FO Leave a tail of yarn for sewing to the mouth

Mouth –
Rd 1 – Ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook in next 5, 2 sc in last stitch – working on the other-side (bottom loops of your chain) sc in next 6 stitches across (14 sc) FO Leave a long tail for sewing to the head.

Inner Ears – Make 2 – MC, ch 1
Rd 1 – 6 sc in MC, ss to 1st sc ch 1 (6sc)
Rd 2 – 2 sc in each sc around ss in 1st sc to join (12 sc)Rd 3- 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next st, repeat then join (18sc) FO

Outer Ear – Make 2 – MC, Ch 1
REPEAT Round 1 – 3 from Inner Ear
Rd 4 – sc in each sc around, sl st to 1st (18 sc)
Rd 5 – Holding Inner ear and Outer Ear wrong sides together sc in each around (18 sc) FO  Leave a tail of yarn for sewing to the head.

Arms – Make 2 – MC, ch 1 (start w/the lighter color) I also worked in the round so you’ll need a stitch marker

Rd 1 – 6 sc in MC, – (6 sc) Mark the 1st stitch in this round with a stitch marker
Rd 2 – 1 sc in next stitch, 2 sc in next around – (9sc)
Rd 3 – sc in each (9 sc) change colors
Rd 4 – 12 Repeat round 3 –  SS to 1st sc leave a long tail of yarn for sewing later. FO
That’s all I did – I sure hope it’s understandable but if you have any questions please feel free post a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
Thanks for talking the time to stop by!

Happy Craftin’,
