The original sock monkeys were created out of knit socks, so it is no surprise that there are more sock monkey knitting patterns than crochet patterns. There is no reason to stick to tradition, and crocheting small stuffed toys is more common than knitting them. In this lens, you will find multiple free crochet sock monkey patterns.
Free Stuffed Sock Monkey Crochet Patterns
When the platform Squidoo existed, ChemKnits did multiple focused free knitting and crochet pattern searches. These "lenses" were migrated to Hubpages at the end of 2014, but the Hubpages platform does not like Hubs that contain multiple links, especially if these links go to the same site (such as Ravelry.) I am reposting the search here on ChemKnits. I did all of the searching to find this list myself, and the descriptions are of my own writing unless otherwise noted. Please let me know if any of the links are broken, I am working to migrate many pattern searches at once and may have missed one.
