Sorry for the poor pic quality! These were taken with my cell phone. She didn't take very long to knit after I finally figured out the body pattern.

Thanks everyone! If you look closely, I didn't do a great job whip stitching the head to the body...and I didn't seam my loose ends very well either. I'm so lazy when it comes to finishing things off. :oops: I should really go back and do a better job so she doesn't look like a franken-ele!

You did a wonderful job! And have inspired me to try the pattern. Did you stuff it like the pattern said -- with pellets and fiberfil?

I love the elephant, have saved the pattern. I was wondering if you use cascade 220 is that a 100% wool and would it felt up if washed. quite fancy making a felted toy for my daughter. wonder if it would work.

Thank you! I just used fiberfil. I was going to use pellets too but Joann's only sold it in these HUGE bags!! I would have never gone through it all. If it wasn't so expensive, I probably would have bought it, but it was $20! And I was just going to use a handful of it!

That settles it for me! I can knit the elephant without buying anything! Yours is just as cute -- cuter, really -- than the one pictured with the pattern.

That is just too cute for words!! What a great job you did! I really like the colors you used, instead of the bright ones from the picture with the pattern.
