Meet Ellie, she is my new elephant design, I have designed an elephant previously, but I wasn’t too excited about the overall shape, so I thought about it for quite a while and then came up with new design. I have knitted her in an aran weight wool with 4mm needles. She is knitted flat with increasing and decreasing, a fairly easy pattern. The tusks are knitted as i-cords and the eyes are needle felted on.
Her height is 5 inches and 7 inches from trunk to tail.
I have also knitted this pattern in a thicker chunky wool and she knits up twice the size!
Ellie’s pattern is avaliable on my Mamma4earth Etsy Shop for sale.
I am giving away 2 Ellie elephant patterns to 2 readers, just leave a comment below and make sure to check back here on Tuesday to see if you have won:)
thanks for the chance at your giveaway!
Hope you are having a peaceful Sunday.
