I finally felt I was confident enough in my crochet skills to risk money on a pattern, previous to this I had been learning using free patterns or from youtube. This is the one I chose, please meet Johnny the Monkey!
I am so so so pleased with this. He is super cute and not too difficult for a beginner, but you do need to be familiar with working in a spiral and make sure you have some stitch markers!
I found him here - https://www.etsy.com/listing/105941111/amigurumi-pattern-johnny-the-monkey
My only notes are that the pattern is american and I wasn't sure what 'sport weight' yarn is. I used DK weight and he came out absolutely perfect.
