People using Rios used needles from a 3 to a 5. Guess that makes me a 3 for starters.

Stuffing the Monkey

Suggestion for different order of knitting

From Ericamay: I had so much trouble picking up the ear placement stitches on my first monkey, so I made sure to knit those stitches loosely this time. It still wasn’t easy, but definitely not as difficult as before.

Comment about Intarsia Face: Used DPN’s to start this. I put all contrast color stitches on one needle and therefore did not have to slip those stitches to right needle (just keep on that one needle and turn ~ very simple). After the color work, switch to 40 inch circular.
