Amiani - Tembo the Elephant
This is a crochet pattern for Tembo the Elephant, a cute little sitting elephant amigurumi - Part of the Amiani range from Hooked On Patterns, a collection of amigurumi animals.
Written instructions using US terms, includes chart to convert into UK terms. Photographs included throughout.
This pattern can be made with any yarn size. The yarn size you choose will determine the size of your finished elephant. As a guide, using DK yarn with 4mm hook will produce an elephant approximately 8cm tall, I used 14mm safety eyes for this size. Using UK chunky yarn and 5mm hook produced an elephant approximately 12cm tall, I used 16mm safety eyes. The elephant photographed for this pattern has been made using UK Chunky (US Bulky).
You will need: Grey yarn (or chosen colour) - less than a ball/skein used Black yarn - small amount just for the tail White yarn - optional, for tusks and toe details A pair of safety eyes Toy stuffing (polyester fibre filling) A yarn needle and scissors
