It is by far the most boring crochet I have undertaken in a long time but I’m sure the monkey-mad mother-to-be will love it.
I remember the amazing knitted clown I received from the very same person when Freya was born 14 years ago and now it is her turn. Freya’s dad and I had painstakingly decorated the nursery as the inside of a circus tent; bright red and yellow circus tent stripes. The clown was a perfect addition although unfortunately it is packed away in the loft in my bag of Freya treasures. If I’m up there at the weekend (always a task I try and put off, going into the loft!) I’ll get a photo.
I came across the monkey pattern on Pinterest; leading me to a site called Craft Passion, a site full of free tutorials.
The pattern advised around 12 hours of crochet. ‘I’ll blast this’, I thought.
12 hours later and I have two little ears to crochet and then I’m done.
Love, Lucie xx
