Isn't this little guy cute? I'm really happy how this Amigurumi Giraffe turned out!
I used some 100% cotton yarn from my stash instead of traditional giraffe colors. I followed the pattern from (this is my affiliate link!) Easy Crochet Critters. I really love this little booklet and highly recommend it.
The pattern is shockingly easy to follow, just make sure that you have something to use as a stitch marker. I did not stuff the giraffe as firmly as I should have--so that is something to keep in mind for next time. I also have yet to add eyes. I just can't quite decide where to place them. The model giraffe's eyes in the book seem too far apart, but putting them closer together doesn't seem right either. I guess for now my poor little giraffe will just be blind.

I love sharing my projects at various parties, including these.
