My Knit Giraffes pattern offers you choices... two sizes (10" or 12", sitting) and styles, using two different size needles and yarns (super bulky or worsted weight)...all included in one pattern! So you could create the giraffe of your choice: big or small, striped or spotted! The smaller giraffe is a "grab-'n'-go" little guy. The larger giraffe is perfect for cuddling. So there's one to fit every need.


Gauge is not critical for this project. Work
tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
