This is a knitted stuffed monkey that I made for my partner Chris for his birthday.

I used this pattern – although, I diverged from it a LOT. The yarn for the body is an all-silk chenille, and the face and hands are made from a silk chainette. I used a part-silk stuffing material, and stitched the mouth and nose with my hand-reeled silk. A very, very silky monkey!
I’m pretty pleased with the way the face came out; I wasn’t sure, as I was working on it. It seems like the head should be bigger; it’s a time and a quarter as many stitches around as the belly, but the belly is quite a bit wider. It seems like the face would have fitted easier if the head was a little wider.
And for your edification, Monkey demonstrates the Four Poses of Monkey Morality:
See No Evil
Hear No Evil
Speak No Evil
and… Git Yer Hands Off That
Here’s Chris with his monkey.
