A few days ago I knitted another elefante. I can honestly say that I have never knitted one item as often as I have knitted this pattern. It is my my favourite toy to knit...I have made six of them thus far and each one has been a delight. Charlie like the rest was a fast project.
I included bells in both the head and body....it makes a beautiful sound when it is shaken. Perfect for entertaining a baby or toddler.
Here are pics of the other ones I've made over the years
Wok, Saucepan and Fok
