Designed for 2016, the Chinese year of the monkey, this little guy is a fun, easy, and quick project.

Tiao Pi the Monkey lives up to his name: Tiao Pi (โ€œPiโ€ is pronounced โ€œpeeโ€, so rhymes with monkey!) means rascally and mischievous in Mandarin - and this little cutie is quite cheeky!

From the top if his head to the tips of his feet he is just under 8 inches tall using worsted weight yarn.

This monkey amigurumi pattern includes detailed instructions and step-by-step photos, plus you can contact me along the way to ask any questions.

It is an easy level pattern that involves starting with a magic ring, single crochet, increasing, decreasing, attaching pieces, changing colours, and working through both loops and back loop only.

Materials you will need:

  • E US (3.5 mm) hook
  • worsted weight yarn, approximately: 50 yrds (46 m) main colour; 12 yrds (11 m) contrasting colour
  • yarn/tapestry needle
  • removable stitch markers
  • two 15 mm plastic safety eyes
  • polyester fiberfill stuffing

Note: If you are making this amigurumi for someone under 3 yrs, I recommend crocheting or embroidering the eyes instead of using the plastic safety eyes.
