I have always referred to my children as “my little monkeys” because they love to act like curious, mischievous little monkeys. It was only a matter of time before I used my yarn and skills to bring my monkeys to life! Since my littlest girl is a Princess Monkey at heart, I knew that she would have to have bows on her jacket. This jacket is wonderfully versatile and can easily be changed to fit your boy or girl monkeys simply by either adding or removing the bows in order to fit the next child.
