My friend Caitlin was moving out of her house, getting rid of some stuff, and she donated a bunch of yarn to me. It's a big, big bag - enough to make a blanket, for sure. As a thank you, I made her daughter a giraffe, using some of the yarn she donated.
this pattern from Amigurumi to Go. I love the slight shaping of the head and feet. I free styled different spots though, and left the hair off.
