Crochet Giraffe

I didn't want to do this post until I gave this to my sister. I made this little guy for my new little niece or nephew, and....... it's a girl. Her name is Summer and she was born on the 2/8/12, a week before Ruby is 2. She is just so cute and lovely and I really want another one now. I made this little guy a few weeks ago and he has been waiting, well everyone was really. She was 11 days late, Ruby was 12 days late, we incubate well I think.
Now I didn't follow a pattern as I couldn't find one I liked. I kind of increased and decreased and I am really happy with how he turned out. Actually I would say this has been one of my favourite projects and everyone has loved him. I might have to make one for myself now.
I took quite a few photos...
On my bed
On the shelf
On the couch
Still on the couch
I also made this little guy, it's a rattle.

They look sweet together.
They have a very special person to make happy.

  10. My friend came across your giraffe and fell in love with it. She's asked me to make one for her to give to her oldest daughter, who is expecting their first child. Is there any way I could sweet talk you into emailing me your pattern? Even if it's just a rough one - I'm an experienced crocheter. Just don't have a whole lot of time to design one for myself (will, if I have to). I promise not to sell it or claim it as my own. She just really loves your version!

    My email is shutterbugette@hotmail.com.

    Thanks!

  15. Hey Emma,
    thanks so much for this cute Giraffe and the pattern! I don't know for how long I've been searching the Internet to find someone like him/her :)
    Could you please tell me how big (approximately) the giraffe is going to be, once its finished? Thanks so much!

    With the best wishes from Hannover, Germany :)

  18. Dear Emma, I love your works, everyone is so great. No matter the material or the color is such amazing.
    May I ask you what the brand(model) is you use in "Giraffe" and "Granny square blanket"?
    I will never make any work from your web site in commercial purposes.
    Thank you so much, and answer me to my email: jclin9083@gmail.com please.
