Hello! I didn’t abandon you, promise! Our family increased by one in April and we’ve been taking some time to get to know our little baby bundle. Normality is slowly resuming and I’m getting small chunks of free time here and there again. I’m looking forward to getting back to my crafty projects and posting about them here on the blog.
One of the projects I finished shortly before baby came along is this super cute crochet amigurumi elephant. I’ve wanted to share him with you for a while now. I love this pattern and I’m really pleased with how he turned out.
I originally intended to make much smaller versions of this elephant for a mobile for the nursery, but when I made a tester elephant I realised that they were going to crochet up too big. So I decided to make this supersize elephant instead.
Isn’t he great?! This is such a fun pattern and the construction is very clever too. You crochet the body first then re-join the yarn to make the trunk, legs and belly. Only the ears and tail have to be made separately and attached.
The original pattern was designed by Japanese artist Chisachi Kushima and the English translation can be found at All About Ami.
