Giraffe Applique {Free Crochet Pattern}

This giraffe applique is the same one that I used for my Giraffe Stethoscope Cozy.

It is a fun little applique pattern that can be used for a variety of projects. You can make the pattern smaller, simply by going down a couple of hook sizes. You can keep the F hook the same, but an I hook would be perfect to replace the K hook.

What will you use this giraffe applique for?
