The Not-So-Itty-Bitty Giraffe

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I like the little girly color, and I think I did a good job of capturing the character of Susan's design. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use the alternative cast-on method, it's less confusing...and redo the face as many times as you need to get it just the right way. Susan is right, the face makes all the difference. I took out my eyes completely after the first completion, then did the nose, then restitched the eyes, doing one of them twice again. Not that big of a deal, and it was worth the redo. Oh! And I used a simple wooden ruler to wrap the pom-poms.

What you will need

  • Spud & Chloe Sweater (Worsted 55% Woof/45% Organic Cotton) 2 hanks main color 1 hank accent color.

That's one of the most adorable animals I've seen. It looks huge! I'm sure your granddaughter will love it.

Wow. Thanks, so much! I really appreciate that! It's really just about 14 inches tall sitting down.
