The (Not So) Itty-Bitty Giraffe »
Type of item: Toy
Style: Whimsical, Cute, Funky
What was your inspiration?
My daughter's favorite animal has always been giraffes. When she had a daughter I had lots more time to knit and then up popped this class at Craftsy. Perfect!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If I were to make another I would:
Knit in the spots, as much as I hate intarsia in the round
Make the neck longer
Pick up the legs from the body instead of sewing them on.
Makes for less fiddly finishing.
