This pattern is written in English only. This PDF pattern contains full instructions for knitting and finishing off a little monkey in a spotty dress. The pattern includes 2 dress options, the first is worked in stranded/Fair Isle technique with two colours on some rows and the second is worked in a single colour with textured purl dots.

Finished size:
approx 23cm (9 inches) from the tip of the toes to the top of the head

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

The pattern is written 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 that you need to knit the little monkey pictured
