Got an order for some giraffes. Nice easy knitted makes. One order wanted a R initial on the front so rather than cut one out of felt and glue it on I decided to crochet the letter and sew it on. These guys look so good in any combination of colours – I love making them.
Saw this in a magazine and thought I’d give it a go. I don’t do much knitting so when I saw this was for intermediate level I almost didn’t start it. Glad I did though as it wasn’t too difficult, I just had to google what a couple of the abbreviations meant ie ssk obviously means slip slip knit cause it told me that on the instructions but I didn’t know how to slip slip knit and that’s where the world wide web came to the rescue.
I didn’t have the recommended yellow and blue wool to make this little fella so I just used what colours I had in my stash and I think it works quite well. In fact I’m sure you could knit him in whatever colours you like.
