Crocheted Amigurumi Giraffe


 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.

  2. I think you did a great job! I like toys that are understuffed because they are 'squishier' and kids like that.
    In the top photo, there's a sequence of stitches that are purple, white, yellow. I think the eye on that side would be cute in the white area. With the other eye matching on the other side, of course!
    BTW, love that tail!
