Elephant Parade Blanket
Here is the Elephant Parade Blanket! These adorable elephants are sure to march right into your heart and make a fabulous gift for a pachydermophile of any age!
Please come and join us in the Shoediva Original’s group, where we’ll be having a KAL for this pattern. It’s a great way to learn new techniques, chat with other pachyderm fanatics and get plenty of encouragement - plus a Bragging thread to show off your hard work!
600g of background/main colour
400-500g of elephant grey/pink/blue/whatever your heart desires!
200g of shadow grey/black
20 metres of red or other car colour
scraps of yarn for other motifs.
A baby blanket for the unconventional parent; a throw for the den or an afghan to snuggle watching Animal Planet; this series of charts provides plenty of scope to make a blanket in your choice of yarn weight and gauge. The lighter the yarn, the smaller the blanket - a sock yarn blanket would create a perfect sized snuggy for a car seat while a worsted yarn would create a lovely afghan to cuddle into! Eight charts provide scope and variation to create a totally unique blanket! The friendly characters can also be used to create sweaters, cushion covers, bags or washcloths - wherever your imagination takes you! This blanket would make a perfect christmas gift - each elephant block takes around four hours to complete, so you have time to make a matching ‘lovie’ too!
Thanks, as ever, are due to the incomparable rjhuggz, who knitted up the ‘show’ blanket, caught any errors - and did the photos! She is a wonder and deserves to be showered with kudos :)
The download forms a colourwork chart and written directions. It is not available in symbol form. The elephant charts will also be released individually for those who just want an elephant for a sweater motif or washcloth.
I hope that you enjoy my Elephant Parade - I look forwards to seeing the F.O’s you create!
