The name Bodil was suggested by a friend and is named after a toy on a Danish film series. The pattern was inspired after I was asked if I ever knit anything besides dogs.

This pattern is made using US size 3 knitting needles. It uses about 1 to 1.5 skeins (218 - 300 yards)

Includes standard American knitting abbreviations. The pattern also has several pictures with detailed instructions.

You can go up in needle size and change colors if you want. There are several pictures on how to assemble and sew the elephant together. Bodil is perfect for a child’s bedroom or nursery. The limbs can be sewn on or you can chose to pickup stitches instead. Your choice.

Update due to chronic illness all my patterns are free. I may not be able to respond very quickly or at all to questions but I will do my best. Thank you for your support
