By Janet Carrillo "damn it Janet, let's crochet!"
A pig-monkey pokémon of the fighting type. It's known for its superior footwork and it packs a powerful punch.

SIZE/MEASUREMENTS
approx. 3"height x 3.5"length

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size: 3.5mm (E)
*Worsted Weight Yarn: Cream (37yds), Brown (6yds) & Light Pink (1yd)
*Fiberfill
*Felt: Black
*Stitch Markers to mark your rounds
*Tapestry Needle
*Matching Thread
*Hot Glue
*Pipe Cleaner

PATTERN NOTES - must read...
 Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round/row indicate the total number of stitches.
 Always use stitch markers to mark your rounds.
 There's no need to sl st and/or ch when going to the next round unless stated to do so.
 Always do the 1st stitch where you slip stitch from the previous round.
 The chain, in the beginning, does NOT count as one stitch unless stated otherwise.
 You slip stitch on the first sc, not on top of the chain 1.
Although Mankey is usually calm, it does have a bad temper. Once Mankey beings to thrash, stopping it is impossible.

ASSEMBLE
    I recommend pinning the pieces in place before sewing them to make sure you have them in the position you like best before sewing. (Most people like to use the yarn at the end of the finished pieces to sew them in place, but I personally like to use matching thread).
    TIP...For anything that I’m going to be using felt, I like to first sketch it out on a white paper and make a stencil of what I need. Then cut it out. Then tape the stencil to the felt and cut it out.
     EARS...there's no need to stuff them, simply flatten them out. Place them on round 4 and 8.
     INNER EARS...place them on top of the ears we just sew.
     FEET...if you haven't already stuff them lightly. Place them between round 14 and 16; approx 1.25" apart.
     ARMS...no need to stuff them. Align them to the feet and place them on round 11 and 12.
     TAIL...place it in round 17 over on the back of the body, try to find the middle. Once it has been sewn in place, bent it in the position you like best.
     NOSE...try to find the middle of the face and place it on round 10 and 12.
     NOSTRILS...using black thread or embroidery floss make 2 tiny diagonal lines on the nose.
     EYES...using black felt make 2 small circles and place them on round 9 and 10.
