with Susan B. Anderson
Susan B. Anderson's adorable knit toys have been featured in magazines, on websites and in her best-selling books, Itty-Bitty Toys, Itty-Bitty Nursery and Spud & Chloe at the Farm. Now knit along with Susan on Craftsy as she shows you how to make this darling giraffe, the most popular project from Itty-Bitty Toys.
Using the included free pattern, you will learn how to pick the perfect yarn and knit in the round on double-pointed needles, using simple increases and decreases to shape the body and head. Along the way, Susan shares toy knitting tips you can use to create a whole menagerie - details like a pompom mane, perky horns, sweet hand-stitched face, and stuffing secrets to make your giraffe perfectly huggable. You'll finish with a soft and sturdy handmade toy to be treasured for a lifetime.
Sign up today for The (Not So) Itty-Bitty Giraffe and knit a new friend for the child in your life - or for yourself! We promise not to tell.
