Monkey’s come in a wide range of colors and characteristics. Some have tails (Golden Lugar) and some do not (orangutan). Some have hairy chests and some have smooth bellies. Swap out the copper fun fur for black and now you’ve got yourself a chimpanzee!
This monkey has knee and elbow joints. The hands and feet have fuzzy sticks crocheted inside so they can grab palm branches and bananas!
This is quick and easy to crochet. The banana is crocheted in the round while the peel is crocheted in rows to give it a more ridged look. Make a bunch, your little monkey is bound to be hungry.
This large crochet project is sure to impress. Perfect for a themed baby room or luau party. And it’s completely mobile.
The details make this palm tree very realistic. The trunk is crocheted with varying stitches to give it a ridged and wavy look. The crocodile stitches and fun fur at the top make it look like cut palms. The leaves crocheted in various shades of green make it look like the sun is casting shadows. And the loop stitch base makes wonderful grass!
You’ll be surprised to learn that the structure is held together with easy to find parts like a christmas tree stand and 3” drainage pipe, etc.
