So it's the first week of December and I've not made any Christmas gifts yet. Slightly worrying. However, I have crocheted this cute giraffe for the boyfriend's new niece who should be arriving any day now! It's the same free pattern as this one, which I made earlier in the year, this time in a grey and white colour scheme picked by the Mum-to-be to match their newly decorated nursery.
You can find the pattern on ravelry here, it's free and easy to follow. You can also take a look at some beginner crochet amigurumi tips I wrote up the first time around. Practice really does make perfect though and I finished this one in a little over a week (although the looming 'gifts to make' list might also have had an effect on my speed).
I can't wait to present him to his new owner!
Which colour scheme do you prefer grey and white or the traditional yellow and brown used last time?
