Little Elephant FREE pattern

 LITTLE ELEPHANT  FREE  PATTERN 





This pattern makes a 5th pattern in my series “little buddies”. So far, it is the most detailed and best formatted pattern of mine.
As a doll, this baby can be done in less than an hour, just like all of the other buddies.
They are collectable little dolls everyone loves.
Small children will love them, they will hold them in their little hands, just like toddlers, who can play with all of them at once, this doll can help their imagination. Maybe is a zoo, or a happy family? Let them think of it. Also, teenagers will love them becouse they are small and can be used as a key chain. Adults will aaprecciate your work. Once you make it, they are a friend for a whole life.
I use them when i forget to buy a present, but i have some yarn☺

So, lets start!





LEGS (MAKE 2)

First we make one leg, and then we make the other one, and, without cutting the yarn, continue to the body.

R1: in MR 6sc (6)

R2-R4 : sc all around (6)

 

BODY


R1: SC6, ch1, (in the other leg) sc 6 (13) 

R2: 3sc, dec, 4sc, dec, 2 sc (11)

R3: [sc] all around

R4: 3sc, dec, 4sc, dec (9)

start stuffing the body, keep stuffing as you go

R7:  [sc, dec] x3 (6)

R9: [inc] all around (12)

R10: [sc, inc] all around  (18)

R12& R13: [sc] all around (18)

R14: [sc, dec] all around (12)

Put safety eyes between  R12 an R13, 3 sts apart, so that that hole we made if in the middle

Stuff

R15:[dec] all around (6)






FO, and sew the remaining hole 




ARMS (MAKE 2)

₪For the arms, we will use the i-cord technique, if you are new to this technique, you can find some tutorials, but, if you still need it, you can ask me, I will be happy to help you!

R1: ch3, [put a hook into a loop, YO, pull trough]x2 ( you should have 3 loops on your hook, this step looks like knitting a little bit)

R2&R3: drop 2 loops (hold them thigh, if you let them go, you wouldn’t be able to catch them, and that would be a catastrophe) YO, pull trough, put your hook into 1s1 dropped loop, YO, pull trough, put a hook into2nd dropped loop, YO, pull trough (you should still have 3 loops on your hook)

To fasten off, just YO and pull trough all 3 loops.

Sew it on a doll




TRUNK

attach the yarn to the hole you made in head, and sc 6 ( 2sc in the other side of a ch, sc on the side, dc2 in the scs, sc1 on side) (6)

R1&R2: sc6 (6)

Fasten of, do not sew a hole, leave it open, wave in the end
