My make this week is this cute little Giraffe Tanoshi Doll from Tatyana Korobkova’s book Knitted Toys.

A lot of the pieces are knitted in rounds on four double-ended needles, which made some of the smaller bits quite fiddly to do. I did, however, learn to knit an i-cord!

In the book, the face doesn’t have a nose or mouth, and the patches are made from felt and glued to the body.   Mine looked a bit weird with just the eyes so I embroidered the other features, and as I didn’t have any felt, I embroidered the patches with wool.

I didn’t get the stuffing right either as my giraffe’s head was very wobbly when finished and I had to push a piece of dowel up through the body and into the head to keep it upright!
