Free Pattern Friday: Monkeying Around

This week's Free Pattern Friday link list was compiled by Evin of Spring Stitches.

Monkeys are like us, but without the hindrance of mobile phones and vacuums - which makes them such a barrel of fun! Why we love them, I don't know, but here are a few patterns that make us want to swing from a tree and shout "Free Pattern Friday"!

Monkeys can be girls too, as shown by Molly Monkey from Mmm Crafts (photo below)

Sock Monkeys are classic, goofy, and deserving of their own section of this post:
