Ella Funt is named for Ramona Quimby’s stuffed elephant in Beverly Cleary’s beloved Ramona books.
The body and sleeves are knit separately from the bottom up, then joined in one piece for the yoke. If elephants aren’t your cup of tea, the pattern also includes blank yoke charts that can be customized with the creature or motif of your choice.
