Crochet Elephant in Progress

image

 

Yesterday I found this adorable elephant pattern from Petite Maille while surfing Pinterest. What interests me most is the lack of seams; most of my amugurumi creations involve a lot of sewing. The elephant has all four legs attached through an interesting series of chains pictured above – I couldn’t resist giving it a try.

The project is coming together quickly: I worked on it for a couple of hours yesterday and again today. I think I’m already at the mid-way point, which is pretty fantastic. It does reflect the cooler weather that we had this weekend – but I hear the sunshine is coming back to the Island to soon!

Right now it looks like this project will fit in the palm of my hand, which is a good size for a younger child. The lack of seams will make it a lot more durable than my more complex creatures.

  1. I’ve always wanted to try an amugurumi (I can crochet a bit) but haven’t found a good beginners pattern. Any recommendations? I look forward to see the finished project on the elephant!
