The Giraffe when using bulky or chunky yarn you will need 2 skeins of yellow and 1 skein of medium brown or tan yarn. It is a larger stuffed animal. This is an intermediate level pattern due to certain techniques that are used in this pattern. The hardest part of the pattern is the head, and the body to neck change in the body. Otherwise the pattern isn't too difficult. Lots of sewing is involved as well. This is a wonderfully cute pattern that a child will just love. When you purchase this pattern you will also get a link to a private youtube tutorial about how to do the pattern for those who need visuals.
