Are we in a tropical mood yet?  Let’s just drop everything and go to Hawaii!!!  A little late with the monthly posting but here we go!

Exactly one year ago, we took a family trip to Hawaii for a week, so to remember the fun times I decided to make a Hawaiian monkey amigurumi.  When I got to thinking of what to do for the month of August, nothing came to mind but summery things and warm beachy places….like Hawaii!

Like the coconut + plumeria + leafy headdress?  The coconut was crocheted with a thinner yarn and took a very long time to make.  Lots of work just for one tiny little coconut halve.  Even though it’s small, it doesn’t mean that it’ll be less work.  The plumerias next to the coconut are actually earrings.  The last time we went to Hawaii, we bought them from ABCmart (very cheap and nice by the way).

The plumerias on the grass skirt also came from that store and are actually one bracelet.  I just crocheted the grass skirt and slid the bracelet on afterwards.  Looks nice and festively Hawaiian right?  Mm…a luau sounds really good right now.  :)

And of course my Hawaiian monkey amigurumi needs some friends!  Say hello to coconut amigurumi!  It’s so smiley and happy in the background.  Now I could really use a pina colada.

Ah yes and before I forget, I also crocheted a small coconut palm to go with the Hawaiian monkey.  Such a happy little tropical family~

For this particular monkey, I tried to make it look tanned.  Did you catch on to that?  Well anyway, I used a darker felt for the face, chest, and ears, instead of the usual light colored one.  I figured that if it’s going to be a Hawaiian monkey, why not make it look like it came straight from Hawaii?  Exposed to all the sunlight and warm weather!  It’d be weird if it were a pale monkey right?  It just wouldn’t be genuinely Hawaiian.

  • He’s just adorable! Great job. The little details add a big punch, So I think the coconut was definitely worth the extra time.

  • Naomi

    How do you cut the felt for the faces of your monkey amigurumi? D: It looks so cleanly cut and planned out. *o*

    • It’s actually really easy to do! All I do is cut out a big rectangle, fold it in half, and then cut half a face. That way when I open it again, it’s symmetrical! :)

  • Naomi

    *Facepalm* Why can’t I be smart enough to think of that? D: Thanks for taking your time to answer my question! I love looking through your blog, anticipating your next post of amigurumi goodness. :3

  • Annie

    I love your amigurumi site! I found a book on different amigurumi patterns, so I’ve been trying my hand at it.

    It is so much fun but so much harder than I thought it would be! When I start feeling discouraged, I like to come look at your site. You do such a great job! Keep up the great work!

  • Aww thank you so much for visiting my site! Your comment totally made my day! Don’t give up, just keep trying until you’re happy with your final product. It took me about a month to pick up the concept of amigurumi, and I also started with a book of patterns. Then I started trying to make R2D2 for my bro on my own (because I’m a cheapo and didn’t want to buy anything for his bday hehe), which was a good start since R2 is an easy shape to create. The possibilities are endless with amigurumi, so hang in there! I’m sure you’ll be a pro in no time! ;)

  • OMG! I would love to make one and put it onmy blog! Will you ever write a pattern?
