What does amigurumi means?
The word Amigurumi comes from Japanese. The Japanese call handicrafts knitted with crochet and needle as Ami. The Japanese call the toys that are filled with objects such as fibers or cotton as Nuigurumi. The word Amigurumi is derived as a combination of these two words.

Let’s move on to knitting:
Legs: 2 pieces
1p: dark brown thread, ka 6sbn (6p)
2p: pr * 6 (12p)
3p: no changes (12p)
4p: (2sbn, ub) * 3 (9p), change the thread to beige.
5p: no changes (9p)
6p: 4sbn, pr, 4sbn (10p)
7p: 5sbn, pr, 4sbn (11p)
8p: 5sbn, pr, 5sbn (12p)
9p: 6sbn, pr, 5sbn (13p)
10r: 6sbn, pr, 6sbn (14p)
11p: 7sbn, pr, 6sbn (15p)
12p: 7sbn, pr, 7sbn (16p)
13r: 8sbn, pr, 7sbn (17p)
14r: 8sbn, pr, 8sbn (18p)
15r: 9sbn, pr, 8sbn (19p)
16r: 9sbn, pr, 9sbn (20p)
17r: 10sbn, pr, 9sbn (21p)
18p: 10sbn, pr, 10sbn (22p), fasten and cut the thread.
For the second leg, repeat everything from 1p to 18p, but do not cut the thread, but continue to knit.
19p: we knit a chain of 4vp and attach the second with a connecting loop leg.
We tie in a circle 52sc (= 22 + 4 + 22 + 4).
At this stage, you can fill the legs a little with padding polyester:
20p-29r: no change (52p)
Further, we do all the decreases exactly on the sides. In the photo, I showed the marking, from
which the whole scheme is calculated. You don’t have to strictly follow the pattern,
the main thing is to make two uniform decreases from the sides:
30r: 11sbn, ub, 24sbn, ub, 13sb (50p)
31r: no change (50p)
32p: 11sbn, ub, 23sbn, ub, 12sbn (48p)
33p: no change (48p)
34r: 11sbn, ub, 22sbn, ub, 11sbn (46p)
35r: 10sbn, ub, 21sbn, ub, 11sbn (44p)
36r: 10sbn, ub, 20sbn, ub, 10sbn (42p)
37r: 10sbn, ub, 19sbn, ub, 9sbn (40p)
38r: 9sbn, ub, 18sbn, ub, 9sbn (38p)
39r: 9sbn, ub, 17sbn, ub, 8sbn (36p)
40r: 9sbn, ub, 16sbn, ub, 7sbn (34p)
41r: 8sbn, ub, 15sbn, ub, 7sbn (32p)
42r: 8sbn, ub, 14sbn, ub, 6sbn (30p)
43r: 8sbn ub, 13sbn, ub, 5sbn (28p)
44r: 7sbn, ub, 12sbn, ub, 5sbn (26p)
45r: 7sbn, ub, 11sbn, ub, 4sbn (24p)
46r: 7sbn, ub, 10sbn, ub, 3sbn (22p)
Do not forget to fill.
50r-58r: no change (16p)
59r: 7sbn, pr, 7sbn, pr (18p)
60r: 8sbn, pr, 8sbn, pr (20p)
61r: 8sbn, pr, 9sbn, pr, 1sbn (22p)
62r: 8sbn, pr, 10sbn, pr, 2sbn (24p)
63r: 9sbn, pr, 11sbn, pr, 2sbn (26p)
64r-68r: no changes (26p), we tie 10sc to the side, we fill
the resulting detail and sew.
Cut off a piece of wire, 14cm long (if you use other
materials, length may vary). We insert in the places where they will be
The ends of the wire can be bent so that later it does not break the knitted
the canvas, then we wrap it with the main thread in two layers.
1p: dark brown thread, ka 6sbn (6p)
2p: for the back. loop wall, unchanged (6p)
3p: no changes (6p)
4p: change the thread to beige, no changes (6p)
5p-9p: no change (6p)
10r: pr, 2sbn, pr, 2sbn (8p)
11p-21p: no changes (8p), fasten the thread. Thus, we knit two details and sews to the calf, putting on the wire:
We collect a chain of 3vp and tie it 7sbn. Sews to the corners of the head:
1p: Ka, we knit 7sbn (7p), we knit with a spiral
2p: no changes (7p)
3p-4p: ub, 1sbn, ub, 1sbn, ub, 1sbn, ub, 3sbn, sew to the head.
1p: Ka, 6sbn (6p)
2p: pr * 6 (12p)
3p-4p: no changes (12p)
5p: (1sbn, ub) * 4 (8p)
6p: no changes (8p)
7p: (3sbn, pr) * 2 (10p)
8p: (4sbn, pr) * 2 (12p)
9p: (5sbn, pr) * 2 (14p)
10p: no changes (14p), fill and sew to the head. Don’t forget to embroider nostrils.
I immediately embroidered the eyes, you can glue the eyes, or make your own.
Dial 10vp, and knit 10sbn into the chain. You can sew to the end of the ponytail-
roll some black wool, but I want to leave it that way.
We embroider the mane with a dark brown thread from the crown of the head to the end of the neck.
Since I have a very light thread, I subsequently dyed the giraffe’s mane in the color of the specks.
This stage is the most important and at the same time almost
inexplicable. To give a similar color, I used fabric paints
by Decola. For lack of pure brown, I mixed red and green equally. Then I added some thinner to the same firm to give a lighter shade.
I advise, in order not to practice a lot, tie a separate sample from that
the same yarn of the same color and try to paint spots on it. Do not be afraid!
The spots are chaotic and do not have to be of a certain shape
We take a brush and paint pointwise the upper parts of the paws, painting over each single crochet in a speck. Distance between spots you need to do the same, but depending on their location.
we make it different: on the hands and feet the spots should be small and slightly apart from each other, while on the back and neck they should be much larger and closer together
Leave the belly light.
Paint the horns with a gradient: the top with the main dark color, and then already dilutes the brush in water and lightly blend it all over the horn.
We paint the muzzle with diluted brown paint. The color should be much paler than the color of the spots.
For example, I dipped the brush into water, and then into paint. Then I slightly tinted any of the spots and only after that painted the muzzle Practice on a separate knitted fabric from the same thread.
The tail is stained with a dark brown color at the tip.
Thus, we got the Giraffe:
1p: dial a chain of 27vp, close in a circle, tie 27sc. Without changes tie another 1p at 27sbn. Cut the thread and fix it. Thus, we knit second detail.
3p: we dial 3vp and attach the second leg with a connecting loop, we tie in a circle 60sbn (= 27 + 3 + 27 + 3). If you are using a different yarn, then be sure to try on as you knit.
4p-6p: no change (60p)
7p: 26sbn, 3vp, 1sbn in the third loop from the hook, 30sbn (60p), so we get ponytail window.
8p-12p: no change (60p)
13p: 6sbn, ub, turn knitting
14p: ub, 15sbn, ub (17p), turn knitting
15p: ub, 13sbn, ub (15p), turn knitting
16p: ub, 11sbn, ub (13p), turn knitting
17p: ub, 9sbn, ub (11p), turn knitting
18p: ub, 7sbn, ub (9p), turn knitting
19p-24p: in rotary rows without changes (9p)
25p: we turn knitting, ub, 3sbn, ub (5p)
26p: we turn knitting, ub, 1sbn, ub (3p)
Next, we knit the strap in reverse rows.
27r-52r: no change (3p), thread we fix and sew to the panties.
Attach the thread in 5sc 24 rows.
We repeat all actions from 25p to 52r.
Sew on to the panties. So thus we got two straps beach suit.
1p: ka, 6sbn
2p: no changes (6p)
3p: pr * 6 (12p)
4p-5p: no changes (12p)
6p: (1sbn, pr) * 6 (18p)
7p-8p: no change (18p)
9p: (2sbn, pr) * 6 (24p)
10p-11p: no change (24p)
12p: (3sbn, pr) * 6 (30p)
13p-14p: no change (30p)
15p: (4sbn, pr) * 6 (36p)
16r-42r: no change (36p)
43r: (4sbn, ub) * 6 (30p)
44r: no change (30p)
45r: (3sbn, ub) * 6 (24p)
46p-49p: no changes (24p), fasten the thread, sew the edge so that get a flat surface like a surfboard. You can glue the inside, or sew in the middle to get a flat board.
Next, paint our surfboard with paints on the fabric. If desired you can apply satin stitch embroidery.
