Crochet Giraffe Amigurumi Pattern
This Crochet Giraffe Pattern uses US stitch abbreviation. Learn about US to UK stitch conversions here.
I always wanted to crochet a Giraffe, however, when I finally did make one, it was totally by accident. I was trying to make something else. I was toying around with it (it was going to be a green succulent) and I realised I had made 4 legs and a long neck. I made the same pattern in yellow and folded it up the way pictures below will show you. Vola! My very own Crochet Giraffe. I love it so much, it even ended up on my Crochet Giraffe based on Cuteness competition. :D
Crochet Hook size 1.25 mm
Crochet yarn: Yellow 2 ply, purple 4 ply, white 100 % cotton, dark green 2 ply, brown felt.

Even though this crochet giraffe pattern started as a succulent plant, I have to say, it is pretty clever. All crochet cleverness is welcome, even though it was a complete accident!
