*PLEASE NOTE - THIS LISTING IS FOR A CROCHET PATTERN NOT THE FINISHED ITEM.*
Baby elephants are so adorable, with their stubby trunks that they're just learning to use, and their oversized ears. When I designed this pattern I wanted to come up with something realistic, but still quite simple. I also wanted to reduce the amount of sewing, so the legs are worked as you go along. This means that you don't have to worry about where to position them, and they form a more natural shape with the body.
The pattern is quite straightforward and suitable for beginner/intermediate crocheters. The instructions are detailed and easy to follow if you know the basic stitches and techniques used to make amigurumi, with photos to help you. They are written in English using US crochet terms, and the list of abbreviations includes the UK alternatives. The pattern is a downloadable PDF file and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have as you are making it.
You will need:
Approx 25g double knitting (dk) weight yarn in grey or blue, or any colour you choose. Worsted weight is a little thicker than DK but can easily be substituted and the pattern will still be in proportion, though you may need to use a little more and go up a hook size.
1 pair 7.5 mm black safety eyes.
3.5mm hook (US E hook).
Finished size: approximately 8 cm (3") tall, 13 cm (5") long.
