Act one. Making the front limbs. Our giraffe will be unusual in that it will look more like a person who has arms and legs than a regular beast.Therefore, its forelimbs will be slightly smaller than the hind ones. In order to tie the “arms”, we need to link two initial loops, which are called air loops. Next, you need to gradually add loops, when it will be connected 1.5 cm, it is important to switch to the pink color of the thread, you only need to link 7 different-colored motifs 2 cm each. This is what you end up with.

Act two. The body. The body of our giraffe is made in a similar way as the arms. Also recruited two air loops, then their volume increases. We start with a yellow thread, only the size of the colored multicolored parts is no longer 2 cm, but 3.5 cm. The product also uses 7 multi-colored motifs. Knitting is considerably narrowed down to the arm and neck area, as shown below.

Act three. Lower limbs. The lower limbs are bound in the same way as the upper ones. The motives are the same. However, now the height of each motive reaches 2.5 cm. Having made two legs of the future toy,we get such a blank.

Next, we need to fill our product with filler, and sew upper and lower limbs to the trunk. But this does not need to hurry. We will postpone what we have done, to the side and continue to work further. Act four. Head: The head of the future giraffe is done as follows: we take the red threads, bind together the two loops, called air, we start actively adding loops. So we knit 5 cm, then we cut the loops, we knit 2 more rows, and then we turn to the yellow thread. After 2 rows of yellow color we add loops. After another 3 cm we finish knitting. It turns out that this is the head of a toy.  rainbow giraffe
Next, we connect the ears of a giraffe with a red thread. To do this, we knit 12 air loops, then seal them and make ears. Also, the giraffe needs yellow horns. We do them as follows: we knit the upper circle and lead the wall down. The size of such a horn is 5 cm.

Fifth action.Tail. There is no giraffe without a tail, you can, of course, leave your toy tailless, but it's better to make a tail for it. Moreover, to make it easy. We take several multicolored threads and associate air loops with them (approximately 25 VP). We close the loops, add a bow and tail is ready.

The wire needs to be wrapped around with adhesive tape so that its sharp edges can not hurt anyone.  rainbow giraffe Then neatlywe insert the upper limbs into the upper wire and sew them to the toy’s body.
