Amigurumi Crochet Pattern for Crochet Elephant

This is a popular pattern that is FREE on my blog at I am offering it here with additional photos, tips and tricks, and some add ons in a printable pdf version.

Written using U.S Crochet terms.

The pattern is a PDF and you will need Adobe Reader to open it. This program is free to download. Feel free to contact me if you need any help!

The Friendly Elephant is made with worsted weight (size 4) yarn and a 3.5mm hook. With a sweet little trunk, an adorable tail, and those cute ears this will be a beloved favorite. The Friendly Elephant is about 10.5 inches tall and 5 inches wide. You have the options to make it without clothes, or with a vest or shirt. Either way you will love the personality that comes with this little pachyderm!
