I made this little elephant for my sister she loved it i will be making more for my grand children now they have seen it. And i love making them it is a good easy pattern.
Elephant is my next task, been busy on Thank You teddies. Love studio dk yarn, so beautifully soft.
Sweet little elephant
It need not take long to make and be fun to do. It should be easy to knit as an African elephant, perhaps by adding 2 rows to the outer edge of the ears.
I have still to use the patterns but have no doubt that it will be an easy to follow pattern like the others I have purchased from Deramore.
