I cherish elephants from the make-believe to the real. Teased for my oversize ears as a child, I identified deeply with Dumbo and Babar, and over the years, I have supported various initiatives for elephant preservation. I watch every elephant special that crosses my screen. I created this mask as both homage and evocation of these beautiful, intelligent cohabitants of our world. Level: Intermediate Time: Approx. 2.5 hours Adult 19"W x 9"L G hook/4 mm 1.1 oz/30 - 34 g worsted weight yarn Gauge 4 rows/5 sc = 1"/2.54 cm Child 15"W x 8.5" L F hook/3.75 mm 0.8 oz/23 - 34 g DK weight yarn Gauge: 6 rows/6 sc = 1" Yarn/Tapestry Needle Optional Stuffing- small amount for trunk Stitch markers Beads, buttons for embellishment Ribbon/ lace for ties Fabric Stiffener In choosing a particular yarn /fiber for the mask, consider how/whether that yarn is sufficiently stiff or how it reacts to your chosen stiffening agent and then subsequently, how does it feel on your face. Depending on the yarn you use, you may not need to stiffen the mask. Shaping and light blocking were sufficient on the cotton, the acrylic (light colored) seemed to require a bit of stiffening.

Long, long ago, far, far away, when the subway cost a quarter and the corner drugstore was also an ice cream parlor where a little girl sipped vanilla egg creams, her mother, who made her wonderful clothes, showed her how to crochet. Her father taught her how to solder and make a tuner.
