This Adorable little elephant is knit in the round. All limbs are attached as you go. Quick to knit.
Incredibly soft toy elephant, very little sewing required (sewing the ears on and closing up openings in legs, top of head, and trunk). Very interesting construction-- legs are knitted and placed on holders. When you arrive at the point in the pattern where the legs are attached, the legs are placed on needles and you knit a stitch from the leg and a stitch from the body together.
