Wow! Isn't that cool?!
Is that seed stitch throughout? OMG! No WONDER you didn't enjoy it!

I'm always interested in elephant knitting patterns. They just look neat.

Thank you all, yes it is seed stitch, but that's not what made me not like it... the pattern is not well written at all. And that was frustrating...

I didn't put any cellophane in it, so no crinkle crinkle, I was having a hard time finding it when I was ready to stuff it, I also didn't find a sweeker, but I did find a little thing that plays "Over the Rainbow", I thought that was cute and it has 2 bells in it.

HA ha at first I forgot to ad the ears, I keep looking at it thinking something was wrong, then it hit me... glad that I didn't send it before...

THey are both very cute, but my favorite has to be the little Jester. Where is the patterns from?

Oh my goodness! They are both adorable! You did a great job!

I was just looking at a book at Borders yesterday called Knitted Amigurami Because Crocheters Shouldn't Have All the Fun (or something like that) but most of the things in it weren't very cuddly - things like squid and spiders. They were cool, and the praying mantis was amazing, but I wasn't inspired to make them. I'd love to do one or both of these little dolls though! Are the patterns available online?
