The Blue Giraffe (An Amigurumi Crochet Project)

Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream
Color: Faded Denim
Hook: G
Pattern: (affiliate link) Vanna's Choice: Easy Crochet Critters

I love this pattern book!  It basically uses single crochet -- although you do need to know how to increase or decrease.  (A basic explanation is included in the book.)  Like 99% of crochet patterns out there it is written in "crochet shorthand", but if you aren't familiar with the terms they are easily googled!

I have made a giraffe with this pattern before.  (Check out the full post here.)  This time I used a smaller hook and I think my stitches are a bit tighter.  Of course, this makes the giraffe a little smaller.

Catherine really likes the blue giraffe.  (Although, she has criticized that the head is a little too flopsy.)

Here's one more picture of me with the giraffe.  My talented sister, Sarah, took this picture when I was pregnant with Dominic.  She is the artist behind the camera in all of these shots, actually!  I love that you can see Catherine frolicking in the background.
