As if life wasn't busy enough with a newborn baby and a two and a half year old, i found myself offering to make my big boy his own giraffe to stop him making off with his new brother's giraffe comforter. An orange one. Ah well, at least I was canny enough to select a crochet pattern rather than knit, so it was something I could do mostly with one hand while the baby slept on me and his brother was in nursery.
I decided to do the smaller giraffe available from this designer but using dk rather than 4 ply to make it the perfect size for little toddler hands.
It was a good pattern to follow even for a newcomer to amigurumi and the designer quickly answered my question on the only part that confused me - which was down to my inexperience. My little boy loves it too.
And the baby's comforter is safe once more!
