This is my variation on the Wee Ones Elephant. I knit the body to look like a leotard and added the tutu. Wee Ones is a great course - small projects that give quick results!

I can see you picked up the stitches on the body but could you tell me how to did the tutu.

I love your idea of the tutu! I may have to do a variation when I make the hippo. Wouldn't that be cute?

So cute! Love the creativity!

MarianaNa I picked up 40 stitches around the body - 10 per needle. Then knit 1 round and next round increased in in every other stitch, knit 1 round and increased again. It was more a feel as to how to increase. To pick up the stitches I used Susan's idea of one leg of the knit stitch. Hope this helps.

Love the tutu! You actually answered a question I had been mulling over about clothing them without separate pieces. I'm new at this and having so much fun.

Glad I answered a question for you. Creating small projects is a lot of fun and making all three Wee Ones was a blast!
