Approx. 30 x 25 cm (12x10 inches) tall using the materials stated in the pattern.

Crochet in rounds
Single crochet
Slip stitch

- Body: any smooth yarn, preferably not very stretchy. I use Pehorka Camel Hair (65% camel wool, 35% acrylic; 600 m/100 g) two strands together. If you choose other yarn, look for Sport or DK yarn (300 m/100 g). You will need 2 skeins.
- Tusks: any cotton lace yarn. I use Vita Pelican (100% mercerized cotton, 330 m/50 g) – 3993 Ivory. You can make tusks with polymer clay.
- Toenails: any smooth cotton or microfiber lace yarn. I use Alize Diva (100% microfiber, 350 m/100 g) – 368 Beige.

You can use any lace cotton yarn. I use Vita Pelican (100% mercerized cotton, 350 m/50 g).
To make the disc you will need a nylon cord (60 m/1200 tex).

Wool yarn to make grass. I use Taiga Classic Scottish Tweed (360 m/100 g).
To make the river I suggest using Alize Diva of any color you want. This yarn has a very nice silky color and fine waves. I use multicolor Batik, color 3282.

Any cotton yarn. Make sure you use rather thick yarn to make the hat and cover keep the shape. I use Vita Rose (100% mercerized cotton, 150 m/50 g) of wine red color to make roofs of the town.
- Stuffing polyester
- Small metal granules – it is necessary to use granules for hind legs! You will need about 100 g.
- about 6 m of 1.0-1.5 mm copper wire. You can buy this wire in a craft shop, but I suggest buying it in an electronic goods store. There you can buy a 3*1.5 cord. Before buying the cord, make sure that the wire inside it is whole and does not consist of several thin wires. With a paper-knife, remove the insulation. The cable inside consists of three copper wire cords, so having bought just a meter of cord you will have three meters of copper wire.
- white fabric plaster or insulation tape
- a pair of toy eyes, size 12
- transparent glue
- a small golden bell to decorate the hat
- a small bead or a bell to make the well bucket
- strong sewing thread the color of the elephant’s body
- strong thread to form the body

- 1.75 mm crochet hook (elephant, disc, cape, hat), 1.0 mm crochet hook (town)
Choose the hook according to the yarn you use to make even fabric without holes.
- wirecutter
- scissors
- sewing needle
- tapestry needle

I am so happy with this pattern so far. The body is finished, and it looks so real. I have started the head, I can't wait to see it finished, also I am using clay for the tusks. So pleased I purchased your pattern.

This is, indeed, for experts, so since I'm getting it done, I guess I'm an expert!! The pattern is well written and has many valuable pictures and tips. Some pieces (tusks, truck) involved intricate, small stitches which challenged my abilities, which in return made me feel even more accomplished. The details are impressive. This isn't your typical amigurumi elephant for kids.

I thought the pattern looked great. But it seemed unnecessarily complicated because I lacked experience I couldn't even get past the top of the legs. So I gave up. I wrote to the creater and she was kind enough to explain some things. So I'm now about half way done and I love it. It's a challenge but that's part of the fun and it breaks up the monotony.
