Introducing Clive the Chilly Giraffe

turquoise and teal knitted and crocheted giraffe by Morrgan Bored of the heat and eager to see more exotic surroundings, Clive the giraffe left the savannah and traveled north to temperate forests. At first everything was just as he'd dreamed - plenty of trees to nibble on, pleasantly warm without being hot.

Then it got a bit colder. Then all the leaves fell down. And then it got absolutely freezing.

Clive is available as a pattern via Ravelry (or click here to buy now - no Ravelry account needed) and from my Etsy shop.

Clive is very cute! (Especially when he has his "arms" crossed.) :)

I agree with Brenda. The crossed arms make him look human and so strong minded!
