As one of my son’s birthday presents for next month, I made the Jumbo Elephant from Zoë Mellor’s Knitted Toys: 25 Fresh and Fabulous Designs. I love pretty much all the patterns in this book, and I’m sure it will come in handy with the holidays just a few months away.
For this stuffed elephant, I used a little less then 1.5 balls of Rowan RYC Baby Alpaca DK in lagoon. The ears are made out of eco-felt that is composed of 100% recycled plastic bottles. The eyes are vintage buttons from my husband’s grandmother.
