TOFT Primates Magazine

TOFT’s special edition Primate magazine contains a curated selection of animal crochet patterns. We have picked fifteen of our favourite primates, bringing you some of the rarest and most endangered monkeys and apes found around the world for you to make. Designed by Kerry Lord to be made in TOFT’s luxury wool with an array of patterns to suit every age and ability ranging in skill level from complete beginner to more advanced amigurumi techniques. You're sure to find the perfect project for the monkey lover in your life.

Inside this 36 page special issue alongside thirteen of our older favourites you will find two brand new patterns for Leah the Marmoset and Zeus the Mandrill. The fifteen primate patterns included are:

Joan the Bonobo
Keith the Proboscis Monkey
Franklin the Colobus Monkey
Declan the Slow Loris
Lionel the Ring Tailed Lemur
Gerard the Emperor Tamarin
Charlotte the Silver Leaf Monkey
Leah the Marmoset
Abel the Howler Monkey
Isla the Douc Langur
Yvonne the Lion Tailed Macaque
Balthazar the Golden Lion Tamarin
Kimberley the Japanese Macaque
Gordon the Golden Snub-Nosed Monkey
Zeus the Mandrill


MEASUREMENTS: All of the patterns inside are made in TOFT pure wool Double Knitting (DK) using a 3mm hook. The resulting average primate sits around 18cm in height. Each primate takes between 100g and 150g of TOFT DK wool to make. It is very easy to make larger primates - just use exactly the same patterns but swap your yarn for TOFT ARAN and a 5mm hook for a primate that is around 24cm tall or TOFT CHUNKY and an 8mm hook for a animal that is around 34cm tall.

YOU WILL NEED: 3mm crochet hook, toy stuffing, a wool needle and a length of black thread for the eyes to finish off any of the primate patterns within the special edition magazine.

All 15 Primate pattens are in the magazine.

All orders are hand-picked and packed by our team in Warwickshire into our fully recyclable and reusable packaging.
