Knitted Circus Elephant

By Cher Marcus

As a regular contributor to Scheepjes Pretty Little Things, designer Cher Marcus understands what makes the perfect weekend or beginner craft project. The Knitted Circus Elephant is worked flat in separate pieces, made entirely in stocking stitch and is an excellent pattern for newer knitters wanting to practise simple increases and decreases.

Sitting at 34cm tall, this adorable stuffed toy would make a lovely addition to a child’s bedroom and would make a great gift! Choose either Scheepjes Organicon or Cotton 8 yarn for your creation; both are fingering weight yarns, 100% Cotton, a safe choice for child-friendly items and entirely compatible for use within the same project!
