Crochet Monkey Free Pattern

Want to make yourself a colorful friend? Below is the pattern for Geir, the longlegged colorful monkey.
I made Geir using Alize Diva Batik acrylic (100g/350m) and a 2.0mm hook. You can use any yarn you’d like, just adjust the yarn to fit the gauge of your yarn. The size of your final toy will depend on yarn/hook used.

Work in spirals. US terms.
Inc = increase, I recommend invisible increase
Dec = decrease, I recommend invisible decrease
MR= magic ring or magic loop (link to youtube video if you’re not familiar with the technique)
