    I am in the process of making the giraff. The material I am using is very soft and larger than you recommend. I was wondering if you have a trick to holding up the head? I find it is too heavy for the body!
    If you let me know I would really appreciate it.
    I try to make these so that children can’t hurt themselves!

    1. Sorry for the late reply!!!
      I think you should put a straw in the middle of the neck, cover it with cotton stuffing.
      Thank you for loving my pattern!

    1. Sorry for the late reply!!!
      Yes, you’re right. In this pattern, we will work in spiral so that no slip stitch or chain at the end of each round.
      Do not work in row.
