(reference only, not used in this project) 1. Make a slipknot on the hook. 2. Yarn over, through the loop on hook. 3. Make a row or chain.

Increase: SC twice in one stitch. Decrease: Join 2 SC stitches into one. Whip stitch: Insert needle (hook) through 2 pieces, and looping around the edges
of 2 pieces. For connecting parts.

Slip Stitch: Insert hook to next stitch, pull yarn through stitch , and your current
the loop on your hook at the same time. Best for closing off or binding off.

This is a picture of major parts:

Connecting /Assembling Tips:


1. Hair: A: Brown yarn to yarn needle. B: Needle into the hole of center of top, and out from side ( picture # 1 ). C: Repeatedly apply to the front as bangs ( # 2, 3, 4 ). Fullness and length as your choice.

2. Assembling ears: use hook to draw 2 tails from ears inside hat, and tie together, then reinforce the ears to hat with yarn or thread as your choice.

3. Insert yarn tail to yarn needle, then nd the desired spots to sew body to hat. Then, arms, and legs to body. Tuck extra yarn tail in. 4. Put head into hat, stitch around to stabilize if you preferred. 5. Use thread/tapestry/embroidery needle and thread to embroidery mouth. Tip for mouth: Step Step Step Step 1-needle with threads in: A. 2- Pull needle out from : B, until threads in totally. 3- Needle back to : A, leave threads loosely. 4- Needle out from: C, cross over threads, into: C, and out again. B (out) <--------------A (in) C 6. You always can adjust shape. ( A-> C, cross over)

7. Use whip stitch to sew 2 parts together. Or, you just use your own way to stitch 2 parts together. 8. Cut monkey face out from cream color felt, and glue/sew on hat. Then glue eyes on. 9. Have fun with embellishment, such as yarn around neck, and tie a bow for more nished look.
