This pattern is written in English only.

This PDF pattern contains full instructions for knitting and finishing off a little monkey boy with a patterned sweater and shorts. Included are 2 options for the sweater - the first uses stranded/Fair Isle technique and 2 colours on each row, the second uses slipped stitches and rows of alternating colour to create the pattern.

The file is 17 pages long and contains 50 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly.

The pattern is for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards. Please note that this project is not a quick or simple knit. It takes me around 14 hours to knit and finish each of the animals that I make and just under half of that time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require seaming and sewing and if you are looking for something fast and easy you would probably be better off finding a different pattern. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information and techniques that you need to knit the little monkey pictured.
