Happy Sunday Evening everyone! It’s that time again! I have completed another adorable amigurumi from my ever growing collection of crochet kits. Introducing…Gilbert the Giraffe!
This lovely amigurumi is yet another one from the Aldi ‘So Crafty’ range of crochet kits. I really should start to mix and match and try some other brand crochet kits, expand my horizons, so to speak! Now, this kit, much like all the others I have completed came with everything that you needed to complete the amigurumi. It came with all the yarn needed, including an abundance of the two shades of grey, enough to probably make another cute giraffe, a hook, darning needle and toy stuffing. This kit, unlike the others I have previously mentioned, came with a simple metal crochet hook and a metal darning needle as opposed to the plastic ones. I could have quite happily used the supplied hook but I did end up substituting it for one of my preferred comfy grip ones. I know, I know…hook favouritism at play here! But hey, we have all got a favourite!
This giraffe is definitely one of my favourite amigurumi projects that I have completed recently. He was fairly easy to hook and worked up very quickly. I found no fault in the actual pattern, other than a few printed repeats of a few rounds as the page was turned. I think this was just a test to see if I was paying attention! I really enjoyed sewing on all the cute little polka dot details onto the giraffe and I feel that this was a very cute addition to his adorable character.
I have put the pattern into my pattern folder and I intend (at some point in the future) to make Gilbert some friends and family!
As a finished amigurumi, I may be biased, but I think he’s rather adorable! I hope you think he’s as cute as I do!
Happy Crafting Everyone!
