Amigurumi Giraffe English Pattern

Do you like my Giraffe Amigurumi?

Giraffe amigurumi

Looking online amigurumi pattern I found a very nice amigurumi giraffe, but the pattern was not for sale. 

In this other blog, I think a Dutch one, there was a giraffe pattern very similar. From what I understood  the girl who had posted the pattern had been the same that I did: she saw the giraffe and she made a similar giraffe. Well, my amigurumi giraffe  is made with the pattern of this blog, combined with this other pattern in English, and adding some changes to make it more like the original giraffe.

Actually, the neck is much longer than it looks in the picture. If you like a longer body or a narrower neck  is very easy to modify the pattern.

Finally, sew the pieces together. When sewing the legs and tail we have to ensure stability.
