  • The patterns to knit the giraffe and zebra

Gerry and Ziggy are the best of friends, and are looking for a new home. If you would like to adopt them, you can knit your own giraffe and zebra pals with this knitting pattern.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the zebra and giraffe, plus 19 photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 12 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, change colour at the end of a row (knit stripes), and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: Gerry is 34cm tall (from feet to top of horns when standing), and Ziggy is 33cm tall (from feet to tips of ears).
