The Giraffes are part of my Shelf Sitters Collection. The Shelf Sitters never stay in one place for long here though. My kids are just too fascinated by them and love to play with them. :) Easy and fast to crochet, and a real eye-catcher on every shelf. The perfect present, birthday gift or just for fun. :) With this pattern you can crochet several Giraffes. Depending on where you position the head on the body, and how long you make the neck, a new Giraffe comes to life. *** US crochet terms language: English (German patterns available in my shops on Etsy & DaWanda) *** Copyright: The pattern is mine.

Hello! I'm from Germany, in my middle 30s and a mom of two. I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me started on it. :) My patterns are for beginners and experienced crocheters alike. They are packed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). My patterns range from cute to weird: I have lots of patterns for children, many decorative items and some special things like the Dead Frog most people probably find just plain weird. :D Just have a look around my shop and find out more. - Steph :)
