Best of Friends


I was asked to knit a monkey and a rabbit as a gift for twin boys, so here we have Max and Ben!


I put cream markings on the rabbit to match the ears and mouth of the monkey. They are knitted in DK with the monkey measuring 15″ (he does have long skinny legs and arms) and the rabbit from tips of ears to toes is 11″


Max is from a pattern from Ala and Ela but I changed the clothes so he would match the rabbits outfit.


I put both characters in the same little jumper and baggy overalls but used different colours, so they are bright and colourful to liven up the nursery!

I have knitted the monkey before but as a girl monkey and I do think they go well together, certainly be a cute gift for boy and girl twins.


Well there’s another project!
