At this stage, you can stuff the legs slightly with polyester fiberfill. 

Body – Surfer Giraffe: 

20-29: Work even (52 sts). 

Continue all decreases evenly on both sides. In the photo, I showed the markings from which the entire scheme is calculated. You do not necessarily have to strictly follow the scheme; the main thing is to make two even decreases on the sides: 

30: Sc 11, dec, sc 24, dec, sc 13 (50 sts). 

31: Work even (50 sts). 

32: Sc 11, dec, sc 23, dec, sc 12 (48 sts).

Do not forget to stuff. 

Neck: 

Rnd 50-58: Work even (16 sts). 

Head – Surfer Giraffe:

61: Sc 8, inc, sc 9, inc, sc 1 (22 sts). 

62: Sc 8, inc, sc 10, inc, sc 2 (24 sts). 

63: Sc 9, inc, sc 11, inc, sc 2 (26 sts). 

64-68: Work even (26 sts), finish stuffing the piece and sew closed. 

Arms – Surfer Giraffe: 

Cut a piece of wire, 14 cm long (length may vary depending on materials). Insert where arms will look natural. 

Fold the ends of the wire to prevent it from tearing the knitted fabric, then wrap with the main yarn in two layers. 

1: With dark brown yarn, make 6 sc in magic ring (6 sts). 

2: Work into back loops only, work even (6 sts). 

3: Work even (6 sts). 

4: Change yarn to beige, work even (6 sts). 

5-9: Work even (6 sts). 

10: Inc, sc 2, inc, sc 2 (8 sts). 

11-21: Work even (8 sts), fasten off. Crochet two pieces and sew to the body, placing over wire. 

Ears: 2 parts – Surfer Giraffe

Make a chain of 3 ch and work 7 sc into it. Sew to the corners of the head. 

Horns: 2 parts – Surfer Giraffe

1: Make a magic ring, crochet 7 sc (7 sts), work in a spiral. 

2: Work even (7 sts). 

3-4: Dec, sc 1, dec, sc 1, dec, sc 1, dec, sc 3, sew to head. 

Muzzle – Surfer Giraffe: 

1: Make a magic ring, crochet 6 sc (6 sts). 

2: Inc around (12 sts). 

3-4: Work even (12 sts). 

5: (Sc 1, dec) repeat 4 times (8 sts). 

6: Work even (8 sts). 

7: (Sc 3, inc) repeat 2 times (10 sts). 

8: (Sc 4, inc) repeat 2 times (12 sts). 

9: (Sc 5, inc) repeat 2 times (14 sts). 

10: Work even (14 sts), stuff and sew to head. Do not forget to embroider nostrils. 

I embroidered eyes right away, but you can glue or make your own. 

Tail: 

Chain 10, then work 10 single crochet (sc) into the chain. You can sew or attach a bit of black yarn at the end of the tail, but I prefer to leave it as is. 

Mane: 

Embroider the mane with dark brown thread from the top of the head to the end of the neck. 

Coloring: 

This stage is the most important and simultaneously almost inexplicable. To achieve a similar color, I used fabric paints from Decola. Since I didn’t have pure brown, I mixed equal parts of red and green colors. Then I added a bit of the same brand’s thinner to lighten the shade. 

I recommend practicing by crocheting a separate sample with the same yarn and trying to paint spots on it. Don’t be afraid! The spots are random and don’t have to be a specific shape. 

Take a brush and dot the upper parts of the legs, coloring each stitch without yarn overs that fall into the spot. Keep the distance between spots consistent but vary it depending on their location. Make the spots different sizes: small and spaced apart on the arms and legs, much larger and closer together on the back and neck. 

Leave the belly light. 

Horns: 

Color the horns with a gradient: dark brown at the tips and then use a water-diluted brush to lightly blend it over the entire horn. 

Face: 

Color the muzzle with diluted brown paint. The color should be much lighter than the spots. For example, dip the brush in water, then in paint. Then lightly touch up any of the spots and only after that paint the muzzle. Practice on a separate crocheted fabric from the same yarn. 

Tail – Surfer Giraffe: 

Color the tip of the tail dark brown. 

This completes our giraffe. 

Surfer’s Swimsuit: 

Pants: 

1: Chain 27, join into a circle, work 27 sc. Repeat 1 with another 27 sc. Cut the yarn and fasten off. Continue working the second part. 

3: Chain 3 and join the second pants with a slip stitch, work around with 60 sc (27+3+27+3). If you use different yarn, be sure to try it on as you work. 

4-6: Continue without changes (60 sts). 

7: 26 sc, chain 3, 1 sc in the third stitch from the hook, 30 sc (60 sts), creating a window for the tail. 

8-12: Continue without changes (60 sts). 

13: 6 sc, decrease, turn the work. 

14: Decrease, 15 sc, decrease (17 sts), turn the work. 

15: Decrease, 13 sc, decrease (15 sts), turn the work. 

16: Decrease, 11 sc, decrease (13 sts), turn the work. 

17: Decrease, 9 sc, decrease (11 sts), turn the work. 

18: Decrease, 7 sc, decrease (9 sts), turn the work. 

19-24: Continue with turning without changes (9 sts). 

25: Turn the work, decrease, 3 sc, decrease (5 sts). 

26: Turn the work, decrease, 1 sc, decrease (3 sts). 

Next, crochet the strap with reverse rows. 

27-52: Continue without changes (3 sts), fasten off and sew to the pants. 

Attach the yarn at the 5th sc of 24. Repeat all steps from 25 to 52. Sew to the pants. This creates two straps for the beach costume. 

Surfboard: 

1: Magic circle, 6 sc. 

2: Continue without changes (6 sts). 

3: Increase in each stitch around (12 sts). 

4-5: Continue without changes (12 sts). 

6: (1 sc, increase) around (18 sts). 

7-8: Continue without changes (18 sts). 

9: (2 sc, increase) around (24 sts). 

10-11: Continue without changes (24 sts). 

12: (3 sc, increase) around (30 sts). 

13-14: Continue without changes (30 sts). 

15: (4 sc, increase) around (36 sts). 

16-42: Continue without changes (36 sts). 

43: (4 sc, decrease) around (30 sts). 

44: Continue without changes (30 sts). 

45: (3 sc, decrease) around (24 sts). 

46-49: Continue without changes (24 sts). Fasten off the yarn, sew the edge to get a flat surface like a surfboard. You can glue or sew inside to get a flat board. 

Next, paint the fabric with fabric paints on our surfboard. If desired, embroidery can be applied. 

Happy crocheting!
