Mango is a lovely huggable giraffe. He is just waiting to be made for the child in your life. Have fun and enjoy!

Mango can be made with just about any color combination. He has a moss stitch muzzle and hoofs. The pattern available here includes instructions for hearts and square spots.

Mango is also available at Knit Picks as a kit. The pattern at Knit Picks only has the instructions for the hearts.

Mango is about 22 inches tall and is knit in the round using stitches such as:
m1, k2tog, moss stitch, kfb, p2tog, and ssk
