Bloomsbury is a cuddly elephant with a big trunk.

PLEASE NOTE: The price is for the knitting patterns so you can knit your own elephant; you are not buying a finished toy.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the elephant, photos, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the tail which is i-cord knitted on two double pointed needles (DPNs). You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams. This pattern incorporates short rows, and instructions on how to work short rows are included in the pattern.

- A pair of straight 3.5mm knitting needles (US 4)
- Two 3.5mm DPNs (US 4) to knit the tail
- Double knitting yarns (DK or light worsted weight) in grey and white; less than 60g in each colour
- Black beads for the eyes
- Toy filling

FINISHED SIZE: The finished elephant is 16.5cm tall (sitting).

DELIVERY: The patterns are available as an instant download after payment, or just send me a note if you would like a pdf copy sent by email too. For more details about instant downloads on Etsy visit

MULTI-BUY DISCOUNT: If you buy two or more of my patterns you can get 20% off your purchase if you enter the discount code KNITME at the Etsy checkout.

I want to make toy making easier for newbie knitters, and each listing will specify the different knitting techniques needed to make each toy. To help you, every pattern has:

- row numbers for every instruction so you won't lose your place,
- instructions on the knitting abbreviations used,
- a list of materials,
- photos of the finished toy, and
- instructions of the construction process
- plus, some patterns include tutorials of specific knitting techniques and construction

And I am ready to answer any questions as you make your toy, either through Etsy messaging or email.
All my patterns are knitted flat, but most can be converted to knitting in the round. I know a lot of people hate seaming, but I wanted beginner knitters to enjoy my patterns, and knitting in the round can be tricky for newbie knitters.
I have no objection if you wish to sell finished toys made from my knitting patterns, provided I am given credit as the pattern designer. These patterns are intended for personal use, so you are not authorised to sell the pattern itself. I encourage items knitted from my patterns to be sold for charity fundraising purposes.
My Etsy store only stocks my most popular patterns, but all of my designs are available to download from Ravelry at
If you need help finding a pattern, just send me a message and I will be happy to help.
I am sorry but I am not taking custom orders at the moment.
