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.

So here’s poor Clive enduring winter, so chilly that he’s turned blue, trying to keep warm in his red scarf. Let’s hope the scarf keeps him from getting a cold - with a neck that long, a sore throat would not be fun!

Making Clive and his scarf involves both knitting and a little bit of crochet.

The knitting is done both flat and in the round on double-pointed needles, with the stitches knit, purl, right lifted increase and knit/purl 2 together. A little bit of I-cord knitting is also used for his horns and the pattern includes brief instructions for how to do that.

Clive’s spots are crocheted using the stitches chain, single crochet and slip stitch.

The PDF pattern includes many pictures and easy to follow, row-for-row instructions.
