This is my original “Charlie the Monkey” cushion, which was designed to be knitted with a yarn kit that was sold with Let’s Get Crafting magazine. I knitted my monkey in single row stripes, but you can knit your cushion in one colour if you prefer.

To knit Charlie you will need:

  • Chunky weight acrylic yarns.
  • A pair of 5.5mm (US9) straight knitting needles
  • Polyester toy stuffing
  • Sew on wobbly toy eyes
  • Black DK yarn to embroider the mouth
