FO: Ellie

In love with this adorable elephant that I made for my boss's granddaughter.  This pattern isn't exactly for the feint of heart... it involves some painful stitch-picking-up and you need to knit in some very tight spaces - but in the end it is totally worth the adorable result!

notes:

  • Please save yourself a lot of pain and suffering by using a crochet hook to pick up the stitches for the limbs! I didn’t figure this out until the second arm. Don’t make my mistake!
  • Used these instructions for eyes
  • Followed pattern in Bshain’s Ravelry notes for the bow.
