Both pig and monkey stand about 10cm high, I got them both out of one ball of the patterned yarn and a small amount of contrasting colour.

I used Sirdar snuggly baby Crofter (shade 0159). You will need a little bit of contrasting colour for the face and feet/hands of monkey (I used Sirdar Snuggly shade 0344)

You’ll also need:

  • Some position markers (I use hair grips a.k.a. kirby grips/bobby pins)
  • A pair of scissors
  • Some stuffing stuff
  • monkey sits better with some poly pellets in the base - a walnut sized amount tied loosely into a stocking.
  • A blunt needle for sewing bits together
  • Safety eyes - I used 9mm black
