Pattern Description:

Tatianna, my grand-daughter asked me to knit her an elephant. However, being superstitious I did not want to make one with the trunk down. It had to be one with the trunk upward so I designed my own pattern.
This is a relatively simple pattern to knit and when you discover the trick to making the trunk stand high and curved, you will want to make a herd!
Elephants are a fascinating animal and I am sure many will want to make a pair for someone you love...or even for yourself.. as we all should love ourselves first!
