Adorable little crocheted giraffe

I came across THIS and I just had to make one for my soon to be born grandson.

Oh my goodness is this little giraffe CUTE!!!giraffe 1

I didn’t care for the way the standard SC2tog left the back of the head open, exposed, sloppy.  So I did a search on wonderful YouTube to find THIS GREAT TUTORIAL showing an invisible decrease, and it is a hidden secret to projects turning out so much better :-0

Happy Stitching!

    I have a question, i am making this little one too. But i seem to have a problem with the ears. Yours look te smae inside and outside but the inside of my chrochet work looks like a spiral ( i will include a picture so you can see what i mean) http://i58.tinypic.com/i4fs4l.jpg

    How can i solve this?
    I hope you can help me

    • Hi,
      The inside will actually be inside so you won’t see the spiral. Just keep going the number of rows, I think 9(?), and it will be like a little finger puppet. You pinch the bottom together to give the ears some depth when sewing to head. Let me know how I can help further. I am not sure I explained very well.
