Crochet giraffe

I love this guy! I saw the I Love Buttons By Emma pattern on Pinterest and had to make him.

I went pretty traditional with the colours - I do love pastels - but Emma's are lovely and bright and stripy.

What colour would you do?

P.S. Have you seen the Bill Cunningham New York documentary? It's on Netflix at the moment (I'm watching it right now) and it's wonderful.
