One of the girls in the Michaels store I work at is pregnant and we are going to throw her a baby shower in October. She already knows it will be a boy and is decorating his room in elephants so I decided to make her an amigurumi elephant as a present since there are several knitters there who will probably have the blankets and clothes covered. This one is from the Oliver the Elephant free pattern on amigurumipatterns.net
I wanted him to turn out a bit larger than the pattern so I used Red Heart Soft worsted weight yarn and a size G hook.
It took me two days to finish, one for the head and body and one for the ears, legs, and tail. I added a removable ruffled collar (closes with a button) for a bit of color and embroidered the eyes. He is about 8 inches long and I think he turned out pretty cute.
Hopefully she will like him!
