Whoa! You can't buy your own item.

  • Digital download
  • Digital file type(s): 1 PDF

Please note: This listing is for the digital KNITTING PATTERN to make the pictured toy and NOT FOR A FINISHED ITEM

This pattern is written in English.
Finished size: approx 23cm (9 inches) from the tip of the toes to the top of the head
The pattern is supplied as an instantly downloadable digital PDF file, so you will need a PDF reader such as Adobe Reader to open, print and save the file. Once paid for it will available to download and is also always accessible from your Etsy purchase history. A receipt will be emailed to your Etsy contact email (please ensure that this is up to date).

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 and gives you two choices for making the shorts - stripey or plain. It is less of a knitting pattern and more of a 'how to' manual.

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 and if you are looking for something fast and easy you would probably be better off finding a different pattern. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information and techniques that you need to knit the little elephant pictured.

What you will need:

M a t e r i a l s:
• DK cotton yarn (approx 85m): Yarn A
• 4ply weight yarn in 2 or 3 contrasting colours for the clothing: Yarn B, Yarn C, (Yarn D optional)
• Scraps of black yarn, DK or 4ply for the eyes
• Toy stuffing
• A tiny button

N o t i o n s:
• Knitting needles: A pair each of 3mm and 2.75mm
• Tapestry needle

This was the first knitting pattern I ever purchased. I was nervous to buy a pattern, thinking I might get stuck with something too difficult and that I wouldn’t know how to do complicated stitches. It was no problem! Everything is described so perfectly. All special stitches are stated in the beginning of the pattern with a short how-to and links to more detailed descriptions and videos. I am so pleased with how these patterns are written! Now I have also bought the cat and bunny girls. Makes a great baby shower gift and very customizable. I’ve already had requests from friends and family to make them one. Many of the patterns come with alternate faces (like a Siamese for the cat patterns). Thanks so much Julie for doing such a great job writing out the directions and taking such clear pictures!

I’m fairly new to knitting, but I loved this pattern. It did take me some time to complete, but worth it.
