lovely herd of baby elephants stroll across this cute baby blanket, which makes a perfect gift for a baby shower or new baby.

This easy to knit blanket is created using just knit and purl stitches, making a striking design that is ideal for beginner knitters or more experienced knitters looking for a quick project.

This blanket can be knitted in any shade but looks particularly good in soft grey (images use PaintBox Yarns Aran in Stormy Grey). The recommended worsted / aran weight yarn also makes this a relatively quick knit.

The elephant baby blanket can be knitted in any size from pram to king-size bed. The illustrated instructions include notes on how to easily add as many elephants as you like to the width or length.
