El the Elephant


Knitting Instructions simple and quick to knit but you do need to be comfortable changing yarn colors within a row


Children will have hours of fun playing with El the Elephant.  Knitted in DK yarn on smaller needles to keep the weave tighter so that no stuffing can be seen nor pulled out by small fingers. Also great to make gifts and fair products to sell. Knitted flat with 3.5mm (US #5) knitting needles to give that tight weave

A quick knit elephant with a rug on its back and either water or grass from its trunk.  The body is worked in purl and garter stitch, with an easy to follow, Step by Step instructions. An adorable and durable elephant toy that will be forever cherished and your memory will live on

Best of all no need to weave in the yarn tails as it all can be used as part of the stuffing!
