I just finished this giraffe for my friends daughter. She'll be two next week and her birthday party theme is "safari/jungle". I'd been eyeing this giraffe pattern for a while and had just the right colors in my stash to make it. It was super easy, fun and fast. I love projects that I can finish in less than a week. Also, my friend's little girl is apparently very into giraffes right now. So, it was all around a great project.
I used the pattern on the Lion Brand Yarn website. It is free if you register with the site. They have TONS of free patterns available.
My favorite part is the head/face. The horns and ears are so dang cute!
