ASSEMBLY OF THE GIRAFFE

You will need dots also, they are 6 sc in a magic ring and slip stitch in the first stitch. Make 6 of them.s

Finishing the head, sew on the two horns and the two ears. Isew my ears in row 25, 23 stitches away. Also the horns are on the same row. After adding the ears and horn to the head we have to do the ridge. Just in the middle of the head, starting in the middle of the ears adding yarn to each line, all around the head.

After this sew the body to the head.

Sew the legs on to the body on line 7.

Sew the hands on to the body between line 24 and 25.

Add the dots and the Giraffe is ready.
