17 Free Monkey Patterns to Knit and Crochet

Today is Monkey Day! This unofficial holiday celebrates monkeys around the world. This collection of patterns to knit and crochet from Yarnspirations is full of monkey-related projects to love, including knit and crochet monkeys to cuddle, monkey hats, and more.

Many of these projects are based off of sock monkeys, which were traditionally made using gray and white athletic socks, stuffed with filling and sewn together. The name is now used for many similar styles of toy stuffed monkeys. These versions are knit and crocheted for a similar look. Plus, there are other monkey patterns too!
