Woolly Monkey Amigurumi
With this pattern you can make yourself an adorable Woolly Monkey in two different ways. Either use a mohair-based yarn to make a lovely furry one, or use ordinary yarn to make a smooth one. When you choose your yarn, try to find one with a bit of texture and perhaps a mix of colours for interest.
The pattern is quite straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi, with photos to help you.
Use double knitting (dk) weight yarn. This is equivalent to light worsted, although worsted weight should work just fine, as long as you use the same weight of yarn throughout.

- alternatively, approx 60g mohair mix or similar type of yarn, equivalent to double knitting weight.
Yarn for face, ears, paws and feet: Approx 20g yarn, double knitting weight.
