Peter the Pachyderm

Project Description

Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/user/25217/pattern-store What advice would you give someone starting this project? When completed, it measures 15" from tip of tail to trunk and 10" from top of back to bottom of feet! This stuffed elephant is soft, squishy, sweet and looking for a child to love! The big floppy ears and foot pads will be so special with the addition of your fabric choice. Coordinate it with a blanket and make it truly one of a kind. If you are a crocheter as well, and have my Crocheted Reversible Baby Blanket Pattern http://www.etsy.com/listing/83346172/crochet-reversible-baby-blanket-pattern knit up this Precious Pachyderm to coordinate. For baby or toddler in the bed, crib, stroller, car or just for play. Great one of a kind shower gift, birthday present or for any special child in your life! Any worsted weight (4) acrylic yarn will work for easy care and washing. Holding up to lots of hugs and kisses. Make him or her as firm or squishy as you like!I would suggest washing just like any stuffed toy...in a pillowcase, tumble dry.

What you will need

  • Worsted weight yarn and fiberfil

Kind of a tease, don't ya think... showing the product and no pattern... :-( Hope you have it available soon...
Sheila Zachariae answered:
If you scroll up to the source box at the top of the page (2nd gray box) the Etsy link is there to purchase the pattern. The comment above was in 2011 and I did knot have the pattern written up at that time. You can also find it right here on Craftsy in my pattern store here http://www.craftsy.com/user/25217/pattern-store I'm also on Ravelry as Creative Designs or Sheila Zachariae. Thanks for the note, I'll update the page.
