Monkeys are curious creatures; they love to play around and spend their free time teasing other animals and catching bugs. Their long arms and tail allow them to swing from tree to tree and grab the most delicious fruits. They are also very social animals; we know that most monkeys live in groups and take care of one another.
There are over 260 known species of monkeys around the globe. Some are so small that they can fit in the palm of a hand; others can be as tall as a 3-year old child. Some monkeys are very colorful, while others are more discreet; some have tails while others don’t; some have fluffy hair while others prefer to wear it short. After all, variety is the spice of life!
These are my 25 favorite little monkey crochet patterns.
