This pattern is written in English only. This extensive PDF file contains full instructions for knitting and finishing off a little elephant in a frondy frock. Once paid for it is available for you to instantly download.

Finished size:
approx 23cm (9 inches) from the tip of the toes to the top of the head

The file is 14 pages long and contains over 50 detailed step-by-step photographs along with full pattern instructions and tips for stuffing, seaming and finishing neatly. It is less of a knitting pattern and more of a ‘how to’ manual.

The pattern is written for knitting flat on two needles and all pieces are seamed afterwards. Please note that this project is not a quick or simple knit. I t takes me around 14 hours to make and finish each of the animals that I make and just under half of that time is spent on the finishing off. There are lots of separate pieces which require seaming and sewing and if you are looking for something fast and easy you would probably be better off finding a different pattern. That said this PDF file will give you all of the information that you need to knit the little elephant pictured
