Crochet monkey curtain tie back crochet pattern

I’m really excited to publish my first crochet pattern: a cheeky monkey curtain tie back! My husband and I are expecting our first child in a few weeks and I’ve been having a huge amount of fun working on decorating the nursery.

I’m going for a woodland / animal theme in blues and greys. We don’t know if bub will be a boy or a girl, but either way, some little monkeys holding back the curtains will be super cute! I love the fact the cheeky monkey curtain tie back is a cute toy that is also functional.

This is also the perfect opportunity to use up some wool that has been lurking in my cupboard for a few years… (craft hoarding is a real problem as I’m sure many of you creatives know!).  This crochet monkey curtain tie back is such a cute pattern and it’s really easy to make.

  1. I love this pattern it’s simple and quick but what are poppers for holding the hands together? The monkey is the one I made.would like to leave u a picture of it but don’t know how to do that.

    • Hello! Thanks for getting in touch. The “Poppers” are also known as press studs, although they are not essential if you can’t find them. The arms are long enough to simply tie around the curtain. I’d love to see a picture of your monkey! You can either tag me in your picture on Instagram (@thoresbycottage), or email a picture (thoresbycottage[at] x

  2. Olá. Como fazer para conseguir receita ou tutorial do Monkey de cortina? Quero fazer para meu bisneto que está a chegar. Muito obrigada.

  3. I purchased the pattern and am in the process of making it now. It would have been helpful to know how big this is supposed to be. There was no stitch guide, so I’m not sure if it will be too small, or too big.

    • Hello! Using the hook size and yarn weight suggested, the monkey should be approximately 18 – 20cm tall (excluding the tail). Hope that helps 🙂

  4. These look so great on the nursery curtains! The pattern is detailed, friendly and easy to follow.

    Thanks Caitie!
