Monkeys. The symbol of new 2016 year
The finished monkeys are approximately 5,9 ’’ ( 15cm ) tall.
• 4 double-pointed needles in a size suitable for the yarn weight you are using. I recommend using needles a size or two smaller than the yarn calls for, to produce a firm fabric. İ used size US 2½ (3mm) and US 1½ (2,5mm) needles.
• Any colors of yarn for monkeys. I used DMC Wooly / 100% cotton; 50gr – 155m. /
• Stuffing of your choice
• Yarn needle
• Stitch holder
• 2 Pair of black plastic eyes ( 2mm beads )
All rows are worked in the round, this helps avoid ugly seams .
