Sock Monkey – Free Crochet Pattern

Free Crochet Pattern Sock Monkey

Sock Monkey

Materials: 5 mm hook, tapestry needle, stuffing, and scissors, and yarn in 4 weight.

Stitches Used: Magic Ring, Sc, Inc, Dec, Ch,

You can make the sock monkey any color, but for this pattern I wrote it in the way where the colors match the traditional sock monkey in white, red, then grey. You can replace these colors πŸ™‚

We start by making the 2 legs. These legs will then create the body, then the body will create the head. We work the arms, tail, and ears separately.

Stuff gradually throughout.


Legs (make 2 they will work into the body)

Row 1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

Row 2: *Inc* all around (12)

Row 3: Repeat *1 sc, inc* all around (18)

Row 4-5: Sc around (18)

Row 6: In red, *sc* around (18)

Row 7-30: In grey, *sc* around (18)

Do the same with the second leg but do NOT finish off and do not remove your stitch marker. We will connect this leg to the other leg and work the body.

Leg continued:

Still on the second leg, Ch 4 and connect with a sc to the first leg. You can connect this anywhere.

Row 1: Sc 17, sc 5 along where we connected the chain, and the chain.

Row 2: Sc 18, sc 4 along chain and sc 1 in the connecting chain, sc 22.

  2. Hi. I’m trying to make this for my daughter and I noticed that there are two Row 32. How does this part go? Thank you.

    1. Hi! Sorry about that, I had a typo it looks like. If you refresh the page I just went ahead and corrected the rounds πŸ™‚ So Rounds 32 and up are corrected. Please feel free to let me know if you have any more questions and I’m happy to help!

      1. Thank you so much for addressing and responding. Now I can finish the monkey for my 18 y/o…..again, thank you.

        1. Of course! I hope she loves the monkey you make her! Thanks so much for letting me know about the error as well πŸ™‚

      2. hi! i’m newer to crochet & am pretty confused on how to connect the legs together!!? any input would be appreciated! thank you!

  3. Is there a PDF for this? It is super cute!

    1. I don’t have a PDF for this pattern, sorry about that! I didn’t make them for my older patterns LOL I will try to get around to making this in a PDF πŸ™‚ ❀️

  4. Hi there.. I’m having trouble with rows 27-29.. when it says sc last 6 stitches, I have 8 stitches from my last decrease. The last Dec row, row 7 worked out perfectly for me not sure why I have 2 leftover stitches. Any advice of where I went wrong?

    1. I just put a Dec in those last 2 stitches for 27 and 28… at 29 and after the number of stitches works out….

  5. I am new to crocheting. Finishing up body. No mention of putting eyes on. How to place the mouth, ears and arms. Also disappointed that the number of stitches was not mentioned after each round. Helps me to know if I am doing it right. Can I get more detailed instructions.??

    1. Im the same way stuck when you join the legs to the body

    2. I crochet a lot and and almost never count my stitches! so you should be fine, I just recommend learning to estimate the stitches

  6. hi! i’m newer to crochet & am pretty confused on how to connect the legs together!!? any input would be appreciated! thank you!

  7. Hi Im working on a crochet business, and I would like to know if i can use this as a inspiration? some sites dont like that so I feel I should ask.
