Timmy the Sock Monkey Crochet Pattern

Updated: Jul 18

Did you have a sock monkey growing up? Sock monkeys are generally made from knit socks, but I just thought it'd be WAYYY cuter to make then using crochet instead. I also love the original kawaii Amigurumi styles like chibi's--so I ended up designing this little bobble head sock monkey.


Timmy the Sock Monkey is ready to play and needs a buddy! He's not shy and he loves to make you laugh with his funny antics. Let's make Timmy and if you're up for it, make his friends too, using different colors!
