I'm learning to knit at the moment - and for the longest time I could ony manage squares (or rectangles) - nothing that required shaping of any kind. The little guys/girls below are the product of this period (all made as presents for different people) and were made from a basic pattern which I modified a bit  Smiley

First we have Eco-Monkey - made for my dad who has a huge passion for environmental issues and is a bit of an all-round hippy  Cheesy His ears are supposed to look like leaves  :



Next is Music Monkey, made for someone who teaches piano (he has music notes sewn all over and a mini piano stitched onto his behind)!



Then Chic-y Monkey, made for a fan of the Shabby Chic style:



Money-Love made for a tennis fan:



And lastly - Monk Tee, made for a golfer - Monk Tee comes with a little pocket on his back to carry around golf tees, and his own miniature golf clubs (for playing minature golf of course) :





Thanks for looking - there are a few others out there but these are the ones I have pictures of  Smiley

Now I need to progress to making things that don't just involve knitting squares  Smiley

Too cute!  I love how you individualized them for each person.  The leaves as ears on Eco-Monkey are really cute!
