Boy Elephant in a textured sweater
This listing is for an extensive PDF file which contains full instructions for knitting and finishing off a little boy elephant with a textured sweater and shorts.
The file is 14 pages long and contains over 50 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly.
The pattern is for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards. Please note that this project is not a quick or simple knit. It takes me around 14 hours to make and finish each of the animals that I make and just under half of that time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require seaming and sewing. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information and techniques that you need to knit the little elephant pictured.
The sample was knit in Twilleys Freedom Sincere Organic Cotton, Rowan Wool Cotton 4 Ply and BC Garn Allino yarn. Some suggested substitute yarns are shown below.
