Elephant Toy

Elephant Toy

This was a fun project – it’s knit flat and then seamed up. This is another one I made for the fair. It turned out a lot larger than I anticipated – the pattern didn’t give any gauge or yarn or needle suggestions, and it ultimately doesn’t matter, but as a consequence, I had NO idea what to expect! And, as is typical with me, I’m now going to make another one, but felted. LOL.

PS, I stuffed this one with old rags, so it’s vaguely lumpy. And I’m guessing that lumpiness (along with some inexpert seaming around the elephant’s butt) will keep this from getting very high scores at the fair. It’s entirely possible that my entire State Fair experience will be nothing but one long painful losing streak!
