Crochet Pattern for a Flat Elephant Toy Pattern
My daughter is in love with elephants. Especially since recently watching the new remade Dumbo* and her love for all things elephant since finding out she's about to become a mom, and the whole nursery is Elephants!
She asked me if I could crochet a really cute flat type stuffed elephant for Baby.I did the usual picked up my hook and started making. A little bit of trial and error I think he's turned out pretty cute.
This can be made any size - Bigger hook and Thicker yarn or Smaller,
using whatever you like really to make as you wish.
For the crochet elephants in the photo, I used a 3.500mm and cygnet kiddies supersoft
