Mango is a lovely huggable giraffe. He is just waiting to be made for the child in your life. Have fun and enjoy!
Mango can be made with just about any color combination. He has a moss stitch muzzle and hoofs. The pattern includes instructions for hearts and square spots.
Mango is about 22 inches tall and is knit in the round using stitches such as:
m1, k2tog, moss stitch, kfb, p2tog, and ssk
You will need three colors of yarn. I used less then one skein of each color.
24 stitches and 30 rows = 4 inches in st st in the round
