I LOVE Amigurumi animals! When my mother-in-law came to me wanting an elephant, I jumped at the chance. I based this pattern off of my Amigurumi Pig pattern for the body and legs. The best part about stuffed animals is that you can make them look the way YOU want. Change the color, the length of the legs, etc. to personalize the elephant to your own liking.

The yarn weight and hook size will determine the final size of the elephant.
