A crochet monkey, a vintage curtain and ginko leaves

Crochet monkey wip
Even though monkey is only partly finished
I thought he would enjoy going outside to
enjoy a beautiful autumn day.
Although monkey and I have spent only
a little time together, he and I have bonded.
Maybe it's because we have similar tastes..
obviously he likes vintage fabrics and
we are both fascinated by ginko trees.

But he is more impatient than I am.
I'm enjoying watching how his shape unfolds
as I make changes here and there.
But he is constantly rushing me to finish,
not concerned whether his legs curve
slightly inward, 
or if his shirt should be striped or plain.
But I forgive his restlessness,
for he is young.

I absolutely love how you finished his body... I'm following the same pattern and adapting from it myself. Did you simply increase with stitches and then continue without doing the decrease steps they placed in the pattern? It looks so smooth. I'd love to know how you did it. :)

Thanks you OhhaiSuNsHiiN3,
It's been a while since I made him so let me find my notes tonight and I'll get back to you.
cheers suki

I found my notes so here is basically what I did for his body.
I added another increase after round 6.

Rounds 12, 14, 18, 22,
I decreased 6 stitches each round.
Rounds 22, 24,
I decreased 4 st.
I had a total of 25 rounds.
For any round that I didn't mention I worked evenly.
I think I ended up with 18 st but not positive.

See if that works for you...I stuffed it partially so that I could see how the shape looked as I worked.
Does that make sense to you?
