Elsie the Elephant »
InstructionsDon't be afraid to make creative adjustments to the pattern. If you don't like how something looks, don't hesitate to start over or redo your work. And have fun!
Also, if you haven't done so already I highly recommend taking Stacey Trock's amigurumi class (Woodland Animals) on Craftsy. She teaches great techniques that you can use to make this adorable elephant.

A friend of mine requested an orange amigurumi elephant. So I went on a search for the perfect pattern and found it with "Elsie the Elephant". :-D
What are you most proud of?
That I finished her in only 4 days and she turned out very cute indeed!
