Giraffe Amigurumi

I’m terrible at French knots for eyes and even when I do succeed I find they point in different directions. I finally gave up after much frustration and yanked out my thickest yarn. Snipping off about 4 inches, I looped a knot multiple times, threaded ends into the head, and simply tied a knot in there. I was so happy to have easily matched eyes for once. This giraffe is for a newborn, so it’s ideal to use yarn rather than plastic for the eyes.

The pattern comes from a Japanese Tawashi (washing scrubbie) book. ISBN-10: 4834764206 / ISBN-13: 978-4834764208.

    Is there any way you could post a pattern for this in English? I can’t read Japanese and have fallen in love with this. If you don’t want to, as you bought the pattern yourself, I understand. But making this would complete my year.
