Save the knitted garden monkey

DSC_0085Few people have ever seen a knitted garden monkey in captivity, let alone in the wild, but here’s one I spotted in its natural habitat in my Mum and Dad’s back garden. He looks happy enough here, but my parents’ 3 cats and a dog make the garden a treacherous place for such an endangered species. In the end this particular monkey decided to come back to Falmouth, where he’s become an activist monkey and found a lovely new home with a balcony garden. No cats can find him there!

If you’d like to help repopulate your local area with knitted garden monkeys, follow these simple instructions (pdf) . (The pattern is from Knit a Square & Make A Toy which I think is out of print).
