World Elephant Day

Who’s ready for more elephant patterns? Crafters around the world love these playful pachyderms, and there’s no shortage of designs, one (or more) of which is sure to catch your fancy.

Elzo the crochet elephant is such a cute little guy. With his striped swim shorts, he is ready to cool off from a hot summer’s day.

If you’re looking for an easy crochet elephant pattern, you will love this guy! The legs and body of this crochet elephant are crocheted in one piece. And even better? You can crochet the arms, tusks, and trunk into your elephant too, so that you just have to sew on the tail and ears! While this elephant is not a no sew amigurumi pattern, it certainly isn’t very sewing intensive!

One of my favourite things about this amigurumi elephant pattern are the ears. Oh those ears! They’re big and floppy and so cute!

Can’t you just picture this little cutie sitting on a shelf in a nursery? So adorable!

This design from Willow Crochet is a very easy crochet pattern, and you’ll only require about 70 yards of grey yarn in dk weight – I used Stylecraft special DK (Graphite) but you can use any brand you like. Once complete this little elephant will only be about 4 inches tall so it’s also a fairly quick project. As with all of my amigurumi patterns I’ve used The Craft Factory Toy Eyes Solid Black – 9mm, you can of course use any toy eyes or black yarn to embroider some eyes on.

Our Zoo Blog Hop in June was chock full of elephant patterns – 7 to be exact. Oh, what fun you’re going to have crocheting these for the littles in your family!
