April was a fun month of attempting a crochet along where crocheters didn’t know exactly what they were making. For some crocheters, they were anxious to move through the clues and guessing continued for four weeks.
The most stunning array of completed crochet giraffes were received after all the clues were given out. In fact, this was the highest number of entries for any crochet challenge for The Crochet Crowd. A whopping 1351 giraffes were entered. See the Flickr page of all the entries.
Diva Dan and I were exceptionally impressed that many people decided, even after all the clues were given, to not follow the typical colours of a giraffe. Many crocheters hooked up giraffes for kids, charity and just because they were excited about the concept. You cannot help but fall in love with the poses and expressions of the giraffes.
Like all of our crochet challenges, we always use a random generator to give us a final name. It’s anyone’s opportunity to win. We would like to congratulate Donna Kust of Chesapeake Virginia for being selected to win the fully loaded Red Heart Yarn Bag with Crochet Crowd Gifts.
Thank you to everyone for you enthusiasm and excitement for the giraffes.
We know that not everyone wasn’t able to finish. Even though our challenge is done, we will still accept giraffes to our gallery.
We’ve decided to run with another Mystery Challenge. We are working on the details now. Stay tuned for further announcements on The Crochet Crowd.
