My friend is having a baby soon and she decorated with a jungle theme. I made her this little baby monkey man for her shower. I didn't have a pattern, just sort of winged it. What do you guys think?



Close up of face:



Thanks!

***PATTERN***

Ok, well, here's a pattern of sorts:
HEAD:
I used 2 tones of brown for the head, I didn't write out the exact details. Basically do a few rounds (probably 5 or so), where ever you want the top of the face to begin, then do 3 sts in the lighter color. Finish around in the darker color, when you come back to the lighter color do 5 sts centered beneath the 3 in the lighter color. Do this until the face is as wide as you would like and then taper it back down. Once finished go around the lighter color with slip stiches to give it the finished look. Here is the pattern for just a regular single color head (you add in the lighter color as directed):
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first chain. Mark first st for beg of rnd; move marker up each rnd.
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around 12 sc.
Rnd 3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * around 18 sc.
Rnd 4: *2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * around 24 sc.
Rnd 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * around 30 sc.
Rnds 6-10: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 11: *Sc2tog, sc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * around 24 sts.
Rnd 12: *Sc2tog, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * around 18 sts.
Rnd 13: *Sc2tog, sc in next sc; repeat from * around 12 sts.
Rnd 14: *Sc2tog* around - 6 sts.

BODY:
Note: Body is worked beginning at lbottom
ch 2.
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first chain. Mark first st for beg of rnd; move marker up every rnd.
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around 12 sc.
Rnd 3: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; repeat from * around 18 sc.
Rnd 4: *2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * around 24 sc.
Rnd 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * around 30 sc.
Rnds 6-8: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 9: *Sc2tog, sc in each of next 3 sc; repeat from * around 24 sts.
Rnds 10 and 11: Sc in each sc around.
Begin stuffing firmly, add stuffing as work progresses.
Rnd 12: *Sc2tog, sc in each of next 2 sc; repeat from * around 18 sts.
Rnds 13-15: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 16: *Sc2tog, sc in next sc; repeat from * around 12 sts .
Rnd 17: Sc in each sc around.

LEGS:
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first chain.
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around 12 sts.
Rnd 3: Sc in each sc around.
Rnds 4 and 5: Sc in each sc around.
Stuff firmly.
Rnds 6-? (make as long as you'd like): Sc2tog around 6 sts.

ARMS:
ch 2.
Rnd 1: Work 6 sc in first chain.
Rnd 2: *Sc in first st, 2sc in next* around - 9sts
Rnd 3: Sc around
Rnd 4: bobble stitch for thumb (I think I did 3 or 4 hdc) and sc around
Rnd 5: sc around
Rnd 5: *Sc in first, sc2tog* around - 6sts
Rnds 6-? (make as long as you'd like): sc around

TAIL:
ch 2
Rnd 1: Work 6 Sc in first chain.
Rnds 2-? (make as long as you'd like): sc around - 6 sts

EARS:
I don't really remember quite what I did here... I think I just ch 2 and sc 4 around, then 2sc in each (making 8 sts), then increased until they were the size i wanted. It will make a circle shape but you can sort of pull it into a "D" shape.

Let me know if you have any questions!

I think it's lovely. I always find it hard to get the expression right on monkeys' faces, and your simple approach works really well.
