This banded creature is unlike any you’ll find in the wild, as crocheted stripes are substituted for spots of color. Stripe’s skinny legs and neck are easy for small hands to hold and hug. This baby toy would look extra charming in a multitude of colors. Suggested materials include 4/medium (worsted) yarn, size F-5 (3.75mm) crochet hook, and polyester stuffing. Finished giraffe measure 16 1/2" (42cm) tall.
