My daughter (37) asked for pink lips and eyelashes. I gave her the option of striped spots or circles, and she chose circles. I used Size 4 Needles for the Iced Mint, and Size 5 Needles for the Candy Baby Multi-colored which is slightly thinner.

I also used Make Ones instead of Knit Front and Back on this giraffe. I used kfb on the Wee Ones Elephant and didn't like the bars it made, so I changed it to make 1s for the giraffe.

The circles were made by casting on 24 sts. 8 stitches on each of 3 double-pointed needles. Join round. Row 1 = k24 Row 2 = (k2, k2tog) 6 times (18 sts left, 6 sts per needle Row 3 = k18 Row 4 = (k2tog) 9 times (9 sts left, 3 sts per needle Cut the yarn, pull through the remaining sts, and gather up tight to close.
