Mortimer the Mammoth lives on a moon. He likes it there, it’s pretty cold and the craters make excellent ice rinks. When he’s not skating around he enjoys collecting fossils while wondering how the creatures of the past managed without a trunk.

Mortimer is a good cuddle size, he measures approximately 7 - 8 inches sitting in a DK weight yarn. However, he can be made from any weight yarn and appropriate hook for different sizes. This is not a pattern for beginners, but it is an easy pattern to follow with plenty of photos, and if you run in to any problems you will always be welcome to contact me for any extra help.
