Morris the monkey

Posted by

Just to prove that old adage that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, I give you Morris, the crochet sock monkey.

You’ll find the pattern here on the Craft Passion site

For those puzzled with the reference to ‘sock monkey’ this fella is the shape of a monkey you would normally make out of a single sock, like this one, also from the Craft Passion site.

It is the perfect beginners crochet pattern although probably not one I shall be repeating due to its monotony!
At 18 inches tall, I think he is larger than I envisaged. Too large for favourite toy for a newborn. My friend’s baby is due in the first week of November. I wonder if I could possibly find it in myself to crochet a smaller version to go with him?

Or I might just make a real sock monkey!

Back on the hook tonight. After 3 busy nights of no crochet my fingers are beginning to twitch.

Love, Lucie xx


  1. If you don’t fancy making a smaller one, I think this would still be a great gift for a newborn as it would make brilliant nursery dΓ©cor until he or she is old enough to play with it.


  2. Oh my goodness! I absolutely love your sock monkey! I’m expecting and have been trying to decide if I want to make more than baby afghans. I think I might have to make a little stuffed animal also!
