Tiny Gina

I got a request this week for a Gina Giraffe rattle worked in the 4-6" tall size range.  The pattern yields a giraffe that is about 10-12" tall, so I wasn't sure if I could miniaturize it.  However, after an afternoon of crocheting I came up with this guy:

He turned out so cute!  Just barely big enough to fit a rattle inside.

I have made enough of the original pattern that I knew the general shape of each of the pieces, so I simply stopped increasing a few rounds early and followed the shaping in the pattern.  I still used worsted weight yarn so he's nice and durable.   Hopefully he'll get a lot of love for years to come!
