A cheeky chimp! Mick is a pocket sized monkey so you can carry him with you on your adventures.

ABOUT THE PATTERN: The pattern has row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarn. The pattern is 4 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from Mick’s tail which is an i-cord tube knitted on two DPNs. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, intarsia colour-work, and sew seams.


  • A pair of straight 3.25mm knitting needles (US 3)
  • 4 ply yarn in brown and beige
  • Toy filling
  • Toy safety eyes
