Gigi giraffe

Many weeks ago I promised to share the finished crochet of my youngest daughter. She crocheted this cute giraffe for her best friend’s baby girl. 
My daughter is left-handed and she wanted me to teach her how to crochet. 
She learned crocheting right-handed, I'm a very proud mum!
We both crocheted the same pattern. My giraffe is for another babygirl, born last week. It’s the new granddaughter of my sister in law.
Here you see our giraffes side by side. We didn’t use the same yarn, so mine is slightly taller.
We had to adapt the tails to make it safe for a baby, our solutions were different.
I found the pattern for Gigi giraffe on Ravelry.

  2. What a fun project for you and your daughter; she did a great job working with her right hand. Good thinking, making the tails 'baby safe'.

    1. Thanks, Margaret. No it wasn't easy for her. I told her she could crochet lefthanded with the help of YouTube videos, but she wanted me to help her.
