The (Not So) Itty-Bitty Giraffe »
InstructionsI followed the instructions pretty closely. This knitting pattern is a real winner!
Type of item: Toy
Style: Whimsical, Cute
Cascade 220 Superwash yarn
What was your inspiration?
A baby gift for my sister in law was the starting point. Several people suggested I get the Itty Bitty Toys book and it seemed like 10 minutes after it arrived the Craftsy class launched. So, it was serendipity.
What are you most proud of?
OOh, I don't know. I think the whole thing is cute. But I guess the face is the one thing that could have really blown the project in the end. So, I like how it came out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just follow Susan's instructions. Also, don't over-stuff - particularly the legs. I think getting the stuffing right is pretty important to the overall look. If you over-stuff, you lose the shape of the body and face and your giraffe looks bloated.
