Little Giraffe is published in Making No. 3 / Dots, a compilation of knitting, crocheting, sewing, quilting, embroidering patterns as well as cooking recipes.  Little Giraffe is not only a super-sweet knit toy but it is also a clever new toy construction where the limbs, horns, and ears are knit first. The body is started at the bottom and then the arms and legs are knit in as you go! There is absolutely no guesswork for placement and everything is neat and tidy and super-secure. The only seam in the entire toy is to attach the head to the body with a quick whipstitch.

Kit includes Making No. 3 / Dots (pattern inside) and selected colors which include 1 full Skein MC, 1 Mini Skein of 100 yds in CC, black embroidery floss for eyes, fiberfill.  Does not include optional material for scarf.
