Free Crochet Pattern (Part 1/3): Monkey Plush from A Korean Odyssey 화유기

“I was in the area and wanted to drop something off,” he says. “What?” she asks. He replies, “It doesn’t look like you want my company (for lunch). You should eat with this guy at least.”

Keen to crochet along with me? I will upload part of his pattern every week, starting from today. You can tag me on my IG and/or FB to share your work-in-progress pictures and I may repost them to encourage others to give it a try too.

Should you encounter any issues, you can email me at myartpetite@gmail.com and I will try to reply as soon as possible.

Let’s start with his body this week. It should take you about two hours to complete.
