Gitta is a bit tired from exploring the savanna today, so she likes to rest with you and listen to your stories. Maybe, if you listen carefully, she'll tell you a story, too! This is an easy pattern which uses basic increases and decreases as well as knit in the rounds. This pattern is knit in the round with legs, nose, horns and ears knit separately and sewn on later or, if you prefer, you can pick up the stitches for those along the body and knit directly from there to save some sewing on later. Pattern for personal use only! Pattern and items made from it may not be sold. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit in the round simple decreases and increases stranded knitting (optional) SUGGESTED YARN 60 yards of DK weight

Supplies Needed

  • approx 40g of cotton (DK weight) yarn
  • 5 double pointed needles
  • fiberfill

I'm addicted to cute toys and colourful small knits, so I can't stop making and designing them. You'll find a range of my little knits here that will be perfect for eating through your left over stash, since everything is small and doesn't require a lot of yarn. You can buy finished products and patterns here: Most of my patterns are suitable for beginners, but if you ever have a question please don't hesitate to contact me.
