Description from book:
“I can put them on a cat and I can put them on a hat.” That’s what Robert Lopshire wrote about spots in Put Me in the Zoo. I can and have put spots on just about everything I knit, and here I’ve used them on a friendly giraffe. It’s big -- more than 20 inches tall! That size gives it a substantial, snuggly feel.

There are many fun details in the design, including appliqué spots, and a pom-pom mane. With this project, you can do it all or pick and choose what you to add. I suggest taking the time to do every last spot; it will be well worth your while.

Suggested Colors: 2 skeins in Daffodil #821, 1 skein in Orange #825
