The Elephant pattern was not only very to make, but also a lot of fun. Thank you so much for the pattern.
I enjoy making these elephants and my family really loves them. I found the pattern to be easy to follow and the elephant turns out really well. The only problem I have with understanding is the drawing the string up on the arms for the toes...doesn't really work out or I don't know how to do it but I use yarn and then have to tie a know and stuff it in but doesn't give that pulled effect very well. Otherwise its a great toy for a free pattern.
Directions were really hard to follow on this - I would say this would be for a person that is advanced in crochet. I didn't end up finishing it because the directions just didn't make sense. A video to follow along would have made this much better.
Hi Laura, I'm sorry you found this pattern tricky. If you would've emailed me as you were having trouble I would have been happy to help you figure it out. :)
I'm currently working on her using Bernat Blanket. Not done yet, but it looks so fluffy! I love it!
