Toy Extras: Cold Weather Giraffe

Welcome to our last installment of Toy Extras, where we’ve taken free knit and crochet patterns from our site and added them to the adorable toys in our new books “Cute, Cuter, Cutest: Toys to Love in 3 Sizes“. Today we’re highlighting some cold weather accessories for the cutest crochet giraffe ever!


First, we crocheted the largest size giraffe. For his feet, we used the Mini Stocking Ornament pattern, and knit this cozy pair in Hawthorne Fingering Kettle Dye Yarn in the color Delphinium, with the color Serpent used for the heals and toes. We used size 3 needles to fit the giraffe’s feet, which are about 4.5 inches around. We continued with the Serpent colorway and size 3 needles to complete a pair of mittens from the pattern, “Smitten: A Holiday Garland“.


A cold weather accessory set just wasn’t complete without a scarf, so we used the same colors to complete a tiny one from our Tidings of Joy Holiday Ornaments pattern. This pattern contains so many cute ornaments, but since it’s not free, we extracted the scarf pattern for your giraffe and are offering it to you as a freeby right HERE.  We hope you’ve enjoyed this blog series, and that you might make some great toys from the “Cute, Cuter, Cutest” collection, whether you like to knit or crochet. Start now, and you could make a stuffed friend + accessories for a birthday or holiday gift in future months. There’s someone on your list who would absolutely love them, isn’t there?
