Crochet Giraffe Amigurumi

Free Giraffe Amigurumi Pattern

For some reason, I had this image in my head of a Giraffe wearing a tutu dress and pink booties! This meant of course that I had to make it into a reality. This pattern has been an ongoing project since Christmas and it is now July. For some reason, it took forever to finish. It is the biggest Amigurumi piece I have ever made. I think I will stick to smaller patterns for a while. I did love making it though, and I could finally use up the doll hair I had laying around. The curly doll hair is the icing of this cute giraffe. I also love the fake eyelashes. The head will need to be leaning on something to stay up as the long neck can’t stay upright on its own. The Giraffe is great as a decoration for your home, so give it a go.
