Do you mean like a toy giraffe?  I don't recall seeing any, but maybe you could modify one of the toy patterns on knittingpatterncentral.com?

hmmm...the book World of Knitted Toys might have one. It isn't very expensive either. Maybe 10-12 dollars from Amazon.com. Check the table of contents using the 'look inside' feature before purchasing, though.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley

YOu might contact the author of this blog to see where she got this super cute giraffe pattern:

It doesn't look that hard to do....

And this person modified a knitted llama pattern:

That's another option, to find another 4 legged animal and make its neck even longer....Good luck.  I can't wait to see the results!

OMG, nevermind me, for some reason I thought I was in the stuffie section.  Roll Eyes


What kind..realistic? Or cute?

Marmota-b has a giraffe stuffie pattern which I have used a few times now..easy to make and super cute: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=120321.0

Someone else also has some patterns up that include a few giraffes: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=62458.0

I am not sure what these look like, though.

HTH!

The lady on the blog who made the blue and orange giraffe posted this:
Note: for those who have asked or are thinking of asking, the giraffe toy pattern is from Phildar's Tricotez Calin #2 (spring/summer 2002).

If you happen to want a colorwork giraffe then I love this place since I don't have any knitters graph paper, plus its just easier to do on the computer....

you just pop a picture in there and then they give you it on knitters graph, it's better to use it if there isn't a lot of color though
