An Elephant for a new little baby boy - JustinMy grandson Patrick has a new little nephew - namely Justin. Patrick asked if I would knit a hoodie or sweater for Justin and I decided I would add a little elephant toy for him as well. Sweaters are in the works and should be done shortly.
The elephant I did after seeing a course to make "Wee Ones" on Craftsy. I bought the program and thoroughly enjoyed working along making this little elephant. You can watch or follow the pattern on your own or both - whatever works for you.
I have done a few of the courses on www.craftsy.com and although it is hand knitting I have learned all kinds of things that I either had forgotten or never knew anything about! Such fun to have a hand knit project on hand when just sitting watching TV or waiting around while hubby has a doctor's appointment...
Here are some photos of this little fellow/gal - you can also make a hippo or a bunny with this same pattern - that's three different heads that fit on the same body - just the tails and heads are different but lots of fun to make and super fast.
Side with eyes!
Ready for his/her new home!
