Welcome to another “Made it Monday” post! When we were on our road trip the week before last, we were able to stop in Tennessee to see D’s family. We don’t ever miss a chance to cuddle and play with our 4-month-old nephew. I also don’t like coming empty-handed. So, I finished some crochet monkey tiebacks for the curtains in his nursery!

Right before he was born, my sister-in-law asked me if I could do them. I got one finished in short order. The second kept getting pushed to the back burner, though. Once I finished them and put them up, I was so pleased with the outcome!

I purchased the pattern from ThoresbyCottage for only $5. I used Loops & Threads Impeccable yarn in Soft Taupe for the body instead of the grey color. These take a little detail as you are crocheting each body part separately, stuffing them with poly-fil and then stitching all the body parts together. They look a little odd when they aren’t attached to the curtains because the arms are so long. Don’t let this worry you; they look adorable once they are attached to the curtains!

I’m sure these little guys will provide endless entertainment for our sweet nephew. If you’re looking for nursery embellishment, I would highly recommend this pattern. It was easy to read and so worth the effort putting together.

    • Thanks! The arms are big enough, it would easily wrap around your neck. My husband tried it on like that and it looked like he was carrying a cute little monkey on his back! 🙂

  • Oh my goodness these are so adorable! I’m going to try and make one for my son, he’s obsessed with monkeys at the moment haha & I know he wouldn’t let it hang on the curtain for very long 🙂

    • Thanks! You’ll have to let me know if you make one! I’d love to see it! My nephew likes staring at them…or trying to eat them. Ha!

  • These are just a cuteness overload and I’m so impressed with your skills! The monkeys are so precious and will keep your sweet little nephew entertained for years to come – he can even cuddle them!

  • Oh wow!! These are super cute. I’ve seen similar earlier in Pinterest and I fell in love with those cutie pie monkeys straight away. It’s crazy that you’ve been able to make those little fellas yourself, they look super nice. You sure are very talented! 🙂
