Amigurumi for Africa: Monkey
I gave this particular Monkey away last year, but I will crochet another like it. It will be made of acrylic yarn, polyester fiberfill, and plastic safety eyes.
I used this pattern, and revisions, from the Planet M Files. I also added a tail. It's a monkey, after all, not an ape. To make a tail, join yarn at the bum. Chain to a length that you like, then sc back along the chains. Fasten off when you get back to the body. It's easy, and curls nicely on its own.
