This morning I finished up another amigurumi project…an Elephant!
This is not the first time I’ve used this pattern. To date I’ve now used it three times, each one being a little bit different. I can’t remember if I wrote about the first one here on the blog…I’m pretty certain I only mentioned it, without a photo, because it was a surprise for someone at the time.
While I almost always use free patterns, I must note this one is NOT free (but well worth the cost, which isn’t a whole lot at all!).
For this most recent elephant, I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in the color Dusty Gray, as well as a little bit of Big Twist Value yarn in the color Medium Rose for the little bow. To make the bow I just made a small tube, closed up the end, then wrapped yarn around the middle to get it’s bow shape. I would’ve used the bow from the pattern, but I needed to make it much smaller to sit beside the ear, rather than at the neck for a bow tie. The toe lines I stitched on using Red Heart Super Saver in the color Charcoal. I also used a 4 mm crochet hook and 15 mm plastic safety eyes.
