Gerald the Giraffe
A very special little dude turned one yesterday, and I knitted him this little wool giraffe. I don't know what his name is actually going to be, but it was Gerald during his time with me.
I used this pattern, but with worsted weight wool on size 3 needles. There are several minor errors in the pattern, like stitch and row counts being off, but otherwise it knitted up easily. I used two new-to-me cast ons: provisional and Turkish. More knitterly details are on Ravelry, if you're so inclined.
I can't decide what I love more, his little potbelly...
Or his tail.
