Pattern Details

NOTE: SO SORRY, BUT DUE TO EU VAT and AUSTRALIAN GST, THIS PATTERN WILL NO LONGER BE AVAILABLE TO COUNTRIES IN THE EU or AUSTRALIA from this Craftsy site. My patterns may be purchased here: I received a request for a knitted elephant. I decided to design my elephant as a baby elephant, complete with chubby cheeks and belly. Knit in-the-round, the front legs and body are all one piece. Sitting approx. 10" tall, Baby Elephant is worked in worsted wt. (Aran/10-ply) yarn, using approx. 300 yds. Baby Elephant has a sweet innocence that will capture the heart of a special someone. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY K (knit), P (purl), M1 (make 1 increase), K2tog (knit two together decrease), SSK (slip, slip, knit, decrease), Cast-on, Bind-off GAUGE Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tight enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Sits approx. 10" tall The resulting size will be determined by the type of yarn, size needles, and your personal tension. SUGGESTED YARN 300 yards of Worsted weight
