    About

    I've made a classic grey baby elephant this time- I had the added excitement of a game of yarn chicken, which I won this time!! I just had enough yarn to knit the second ear, and still have enough for sewing up.

    As it is an Aran weight yarn, I used 5mm needles which has given me a slightly bigger baby elephant, than when I used DK yarn and 4mm needles. It’s not a big difference but would notice If I lined them all up on parade!

    Needles & Hooks

    • Single Point 5.00mm (US 8) 18cm

    Measurements

    13.5cm /5.25” tall x 18.5cm /6.25” from trunk to t

    Notes: slightly bigger than standard DK baby Elephant but still works fine.
