I have to admit, that this is my first and probably the last crocheted giraffe :D. I’m a very patient person, but this animal has so many small pieces to crochet, that it was too much for me :). Starting from the beginning – in summer Victoria lost her favorite giraffe. Since that she constantly asks me to crochet similar one for her. I found very interesting pattern (unfortunately it’s not free so I can publish the link to it only) from Kristel Droog, who is amazingly talented. You can remember her name from my blog post with crocheted zebra, because the crochet pattern comes from her as well. I would like invite you to view the pictures of my giraffe. She has a small mini photo session 😉
What is needed?
- Crochet pattern from MyKrissieDolls you can buy it via etsy
- Yarn, here YarnArt Jeans in colors: yellow, creamy, brown and pink
- Safety eyes
- Hook, I used the size of 2 mm
- Comb to brush the mane and and tail
The biggest challenge was to crochet and sew lots of giraffe’s patches. Recommended for patient person 🙂

I have been passionate about DIY since my childhood, and my innate patience and accuracy make the whole process of creation a lot easier for me and that gives me a lot of satisfaction and pleasure. During my first pregnancy I learnt how to sew, what resulted with few tutorials about sewing clothes for kids on the blog. In the beginning of my second maternity leave, I have learned how to crochet amigurumi from yt. I found out, that I really love it, that’s why so many blog posts describe my crochet creatures.
