It’s time for the Monkey of the Month, and this month I’ve made an Easter Monkey Amigurumi!  What else would you think of for the month of April?  I was actually thinking of a rainy themed monkey, because “April showers bring May flowers” but Easter is just too cute to pass up!

What makes this Easter Monkey Amigurumi, well, Easter-y, is the nest of eggs on its head.  The nest is just a small cap-like shape, and the eggs I crocheted out of that super thin yarn I got from Taiwan (the same yarn I used to make the baby whale amigurumis).  My sister and I trialed with so many different types of eggs before we settled with that nest of eggs!  We first tried a felt plushie egg, but despite stuffing it, it still didn’t quite look three dimensional enough to look like an egg.  Then we thought about crocheting a big egg with worsted weight yarn, but found it hard to make the Easter Monkey Amigurumi pose with such a large egg!  So, finally my sister suggested I crochet three small eggs and put them in a nest on the Easter Monkey Amigurumi’s head.  I was hesitant at first, because that’s a lot of work!!  It doesn’t look like it, because they’re so small, but it’s actually a lot of stitches…just to crochet some eggs…BUT it did work out the best, so I shouldn’t have been so lazy heh.

Can you guess what else makes this Easter Monkey Amigurumi so special??  You probably can’t tell from the pictures so far, but…

TADA!  It stands!!  All on its own…awww…kinda like seeing your baby stand for the first time, huh?  Haha not quite, but something like that.

As you can see, it relies solely on the garden wire stuffed in its tail to stand, which is amazing to me because this Easter Monkey Amigurumi sure is mighty plump!  I used my original pattern to crochet the body, and after I finished I realized that the body is way too big for a standing monkey.  Future note to self, if monkey is to stand, give it lipo…

And, just for kicks, let’s make the Easter Monkey Amigurumi look like Godzilla!

I told my sister to take nice pictures of the Easter Monkey Amigurumi for me because she usually takes really good pictures.  I was thinking white picket fence, grass, nice sky blue backdrop, some flowers…I got most of what I asked for, but somehow I also got small buildings that make the Easter Monkey Amigurumi look more like King Kong than a cute Easter-themed monkey…what can I say, she always likes to put her own little “cute but dangerous” twist on things <slaps forehead and rolls eyes>…

Although, after looking at them for a while, they are nice pictures after all.  As I say this, I just know she’s rolling her eyes at me too and thinking that I have “such common taste” with that all too familiar disgusted look on her face haha!

Nice houses too.  The house on the left was a birthday present from my mom, and the one on the right was a souvenir from San Francisco.  So random that we have these things lying around the house!

The Easter Monkey Amigurumi is available for purchase at my Etsy.  That’s it for now!  Thanks for looking~!
