Crochet Little Monkey Reviewed by Mariana on 2012-09-05 *****
I made this as my first animal project and it came out amazing!! The pattern is easy and very simple to follow! :) I love how it came out! I actually gave it to my big brother because he said "this is badass!" he really loved it and its in his room as decoration.
