Free Pattern Fridays

Okay, it's technically Saturday, but since I haven't been to bed yet I'm going to call it Friday. And I'm going to attempt to share some of my favourite free patterns on Fridays. Hopefully I'll remember to keep track of where I find them. As a student on a very tight budget and a self-taught crafter, I'm a huge fan of the free pattern. I've learned a lot from patterns that talented crafters have shared online. And I appreciate crafters who share their patterns. They really don't get anything out of it, other than some joy in knowing that others are out there are enjoying their designs.

Since I'm a sock monkey junkie, and new to crochet, I thought this is a great one to start with:

Crochet Sock Monkeys by Lisa Thoms of Q.D. Patooties. Pretty fantastic, non? I'm going to add these little guys to my queue of projects to do on Ravelry.

i just finished crocheting one of your monkeys. it will be a gift for my granddaughter's birthday. she will be 8 years old. we took her to see Mr. Magorium's Emporium last christmas and she fell in love with the sock monkey in the movie. afterwards she asked to make her one "but not out of socks, grandma. I want you to crochet me one." i have been searching for a pattern ever since. thanks so much for helping to make her wish come true! when i showed my co-workers, i was requested to make 5 more for them. i will give you credit on a hangtag.
