The (Not So) Itty-Bitty Giraffe

with Susan B. Anderson
It's no stretch to knit the cutest toy giraffe ever. Make a big, soft friend and expand your circular knitting skills to double-pointed needles.

Susan B. Anderson, author of "Itty-Bitty Toys," shares her secrets for fun and easy toy creation. The included giraffe pattern is shaped with simple increases and decreases and finished with a sweet hand-stitched face, perky horns and pompom mane and tail. He measures 20" (50 cm) from horns to hooves – the perfect size for snuggling – and knits up fast and seamless in just a few hours. Because you stuff and stitch together as you go, when you're done, you're done! Finish with a soft and sturdy handmade toy to be treasured for a lifetime.
