This baby elephant, with a curved trunk and big floppy ears, is ready for Nursery cuddles and naps.
Baby elephant’s body, head and trunk is knitted as a single piece of garter stitch (knit every row) and assembled with very few seams and some interesting, but not complicated folding. I have included photos to help you make up your elephant baby.
Garter stitch is very stretchy, and it is this property which makes this Elephant pattern work!
All the curves of the elephant will emerge as you sew and stuff your toy.
Some short rows are used for the head and trunk shaping- every row is written in full and the short row technique is very simple- a beginner knitter would be able to successfully tackle this project.
This baby elephant can be successfully knitted in alternative weights of yarn. For alternate yarns use the manufacturers recommended needle size.
Thicker yarn will give a bigger baby, thinner yarn will give a smaller Baby!
