monkey curtain tie back 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.

    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 🙂
