I have another pattern for you! A really cheeky little crochet monkey square. How cute would this be for a blanket in a jungle themed kid’s room? You could add in a monkey curtain tie back and a monkey rattle too to complete the monkey madness. Adorable! This pattern uses double knit (light worsted) yarn and finished up as a 12 x 12 cm square, if using the recommended hook size. (Although you can absolutely play with different hooks and yarn with this versatile pattern). This is perfect for themed cushions, blankets or other decor items.
Want more animal squares*? You can find this crochet monkey square pattern in any of my online stores. Browse through the other animal squares and crochet patterns currently available (free and premium) on the patterns and tutorials page of this website. You can also head directly to the shops portal. There will be more animal squares released over the next few months, so watch this space! (or sign up to my newsletter to hear about new releases: Newsletter sign up). All the animal squares (including this crochet monkey square) that you find on Thoresby Cottage are the same size which makes them great for mix and match type projects.
Also to say that, in collaboration with Allcrochetpatterns.net I’ve got 5 really special (and dear to my heart) animals squares coming out in 2019 – a lion, zebra, hippo, giraffe and elephant. These will be published in a book alongside granny square designs by 30 other amazing designers. If you love granny squares, then this is a book that you really want to have on your bookshelf. You can see some sneak peeks of my squares on Instagram.
Until next time!
Yours in craft, Caitie x
*I do charge a small fee for the square patterns. This covers the costs of bringing the patterns to you (website hosting, yarn etc), so I really do appreciate the support!
