View Full Version : FO:Elephant for baby shower

11-05-2009, 12:38 PM
Last month I threw a baby shower for my SIL. About a week before the shower I realized I hadn't knit a thing for my niece to give at the shower. Thank goodness for quick knit toys! The pattern is Nellie the Elephant (http://esunbeams.com/knittycat/patterns/NellietheElephantPeepPattern.pdf). It took me about 2 nights to knit.
I used Bernat baby stretch yarn colorway skipping rope.
My mods were making the trunk a bit longer and using a pipe cleaner to stuff the trunk to make it poseable.
