My aunt loves sock monkeys, and since her birthday is coming up, I thought this would be a great present. However, in order to get a sock monkey pattern, I had to pay for it. Instead, I just made my own! Bare in mind that I’m still in my first month of crocheting, and this is my FIRST pattern. *Crochet at your own risk* And since this is my first pattern, there might be some errors in this pattern. If you find any mistakes please let me know so I can fix them. J Happy Crocheting! J

Sew ends together with big eye needle. If you want to make the tail curly, skip about ½ an inch or an inch in between every stitch.
Stuff (I used a pencil to shove stuffing down the tail)
Attach to the body.
*Be sure to add the tail, or the monkey won’t be able to sit up on its own. You might have to adjust the tail a bit to make it stand up, but it should work perfectly.

First let me say your "sock monkey" is adorable! It totally resembles a sock critter! Great job!
Second if you want to make a sock critter there's a list of free online tutorials and patterns here:

I love the colors of the yarn you used! And the face and mouth is so perfect!

This is sooooo cute. It is unbelieveable that this is your first pattern, WOW!! You should enter it into a contest or something...maybe that "Crochet Pattern a Day" desk top calender...they have a place to submit patterns, and maybe you could get it into next years calender! I think they are very popular again, I have been seeing them around lately...sock monkeys. I love them and hope to be able to make one too!! My friend has a daughter who she is trying to get interested in crocheting. I found a sock monkey pattern book for her, but it is too complicated. So this will be a good one for her to use. Thanks!

So cute! :) And a great little size too. Sometimes those sock animal kinds of patterns are for big critters. He's small enough to perch anywhere. I"m sure he'll be loved!
