Giraffe, #11 Amigurumi

Blogged under amigurumi by Tammy on Monday 11 March 2013 at 6:15 am

Here is addition #11 to the amigurumi charity collection. It is a project from Crocheted Softies: 18 Adorable Animals from Around the World, and the pattern is called Stretch the Giraffe. He turned out pretty good, and it took me (working on him on and off) about 6 days to make. I altered the pattern a tad because it has you using a technique where you have both the yellow and brown yarn going at the same time. I did this same technique when I made my Franken-Raccoon, and it can suck up a fair amount of yarn, which normally would not be an issue. However, I only had a small amount of the brown yarn and wanted to use it up. So I made the entire body in the main color (yellow), and then I made the spots separately and randomly stitched them on.

Check out the cute tail on this guy! I’m very tempted to make another one. I still have a lot of yellow yarn, and I’m sure I have some tan or something similar I could use for the spots. We’ll see. I keep telling myself I am going to make another teddy bear, and then I get distracted because there are so many patterns I haven’t made yet.
